25. WAIST DEEP (2006)

Starring: Game
Why it sucks: If Waist Deep’s only crime was trying too hard to be the hood’s very own Bonnie & Clyde, it’d still underwhelm, yes, but the action flick would also be more tolerable than any movie led by Tyrese Gibson should ever be. Alas, blame the flick’s ludicrousness and lack of dramatic resonance on the stunt casting of ever-gruff rapper Game as the villain, oddly named “Big Meat.”

While waving a machete around like he’s a poor man’s Jason Voorhees, Game voices commands in an overdone tough guy tenor not unlike Christian Bale’s in The Dark Knight. Hate it or really hate it, his overacting kills Waist Deep, and not in the slang term sense.
