Storyline

Jeff Cole is a recent graduate of the Cincinnati police academy who dreams of working undercover. His wish is granted and through success is given the task of taking down state-wide crack dealer Dwayne Gittens aka "God". Gittens is known as a family man and a man of the people, contributing to his community and helping those in need. However, there is another side to him, a ruthless leader of a criminal empire who will torture or kill anyone without question. Over time, Cole develops a close friendship with Gittens. Cole's superiors worry that the line between cop and bad guy is getting blurred and that both identities are becoming one. Cole's loyalties are put to the ultimate test just as there is enough evidence to take Gittens down for good. Written by Dalton M

Good crime drama
21 October 2018 | by gabriel_sanchezSee all my reviews

Plot (7 out of 10): An OK plot about J. Reid developing as an undercover cop. No major investigation facts or any plot twists. It's straightfoward and simple, but a nice story.

Acting (7 out of 10): Acting is good, even though everyone is pretty much as plain as it is.

Entertainment (8 out of 10): It's good entertainment. No major action scenes or unbelieveable shots. Everything is just like a real book about a guy that wants to make a difference. You're in tension on any other scene, vowing for Reid.

Soundtrack (5 out of 10): No major scores.

Special Effects (10 out of 10): Max rating, since everything tha's shown feels real. Makeup is good and no CGI is seen. Keep in mind that this movie uses little special effects.

Movie's main characteristic: Character-driven.

Final Score: 7.4 (7).

Summary: In Too Deep is a solid crime drama about an undercover cop struggling with his personal life plus his own mind. Being in too deep in the scheme makes him start to forget who he really is, although even that is not strongly developed. The movie runs for a short time and shows us what we need to know without dragging too much.
