Bait | 2000 | R | - 5.7.10

Jamie Foxx plays a convicted thief who becomes bait for the FBI in their quest to track down and apprehend a computer hacker (Doug Hutchison) who stole $42 million from the New York Federal Gold Reserve. Also with David Morse, David Paymer, Robert Pastorelli, Kris Kristofferson and Kimberly Elise. [1:59]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Sexual innuendo, including a reference to masturbation. A few kissing scenes; one is passionate. There's one rather long sex scene, with the woman lying beneath the man with her legs spread while he thrusts into her, and then with her on top of the man straddling him while moving up and down. During this scene we see their bare legs and parts of shoulders but a sheet is covering their waists and her breasts; also, the woman makes moaning noises throughout the scene (and in the background music we hear a woman talking about sex). We see several scantily clad women dancing a little suggestively. A few times we see a shirtless man in shorts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Several instances of threatening with guns. A man puts a gun to another's head and we hear shots but don't see anyone get shot. A man is shot in the chest three times and killed. A man is shot several times in the heart and dies; we see blood drip out on his clothes when the bullets hit him. Two men are shot/zapped by an electric jolt coming from a stun gun. A truck is shot at several times, putting bullet holes through the windshield. A car almost runs into a bus, then speeds through a crowd, into a telephone booth and crashes into another car, finally flipping on its side causing a streak of blood to drip down the side of one man's face. Two cars bump into each other several times while moving. A car spins and crashes through a metal fence (sparks fly). A man is almost run over by a semi truck. A van explodes in a burst of flames but no one is hurt. A woman is murdered by injection; we see three syringes sticking out of her arm. Several scuffles and fist fights. A man throws another man over a bar. A man headbutts another man. A man slams another's head into a car roof. A man is tied to a chair and his mouth covered with duct tape. A man's head is slammed into a wall and then pulled against prison bars, choking him. A man punches and kicks another and throws water on him. A man bites another man's ear. A tracking device is installed in a man's jaw; we see blood on a white cloth that's covering his cheek after the surgery. Part of a building explodes, throwing a few men off their feet and causing a few small fires. A man pours hot coffee on another man's groin. Several men fall off horses, with the horses falling to the ground as well. A man flies off a horse into a crowd of people. A man jumps off a moving truck and rolls on the ground. A woman and a baby are trapped in a car and threatened by a ticking bomb; the baby cries in fear. A man threatens to harm -- possibly kill -- another man's infant son. We see two corpses lying on the ground. We see blood on the side of a man's face in a few scenes. Several times a man is in pain from chest pains, and he finally dies of a heart attack.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
