Bait

A movie that will hold your interest with its car chases, shoot-outs and funny one-liners is Bait. Alvin Sanders (Jamie Foxx) and his brother Stevie wind up in jail after trying to steal several boxes of shrimp. (No, stolen shrimp isn’t the reason they call this picture bait.) In the meantime, two bank robbers steal 42 million dollars in gold and kill the security guards for sport. After an awesome chase scene one of the robbers is caught and thrown into the same jail cell with Alvin. Like all cellmates who’ve just met, they develop a deep bond of trust and just before he dies, the robber tells Alvin where the gold is hidden. Federal agents suspect that Alvin knows something so they surgically implant a small transmitter in his cheek – without his knowledge, of course. They release Alvin from jail hoping the other robber will find him and lead them to the gold. The Feds follow Alvin, constantly monitoring him with mini-cameras, audio recorders, and infr ared tracking devices. I’m sure none of the equipment was purchased from Radio Shack. When the bank robber finally makes his move on Alvin, the action really intensifies. This film is not very original, but it’s action packed. It’s a lot of fun and I give it a B rating.

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
