Editorial Reviews

One Man. Two Lives. Countless Enemies. Marked for death by a biker gang, ex-Marine convict Tim Kearney (Paul Walker,Into the Blue) just got one last chance to walk out of jail alive. A scheming DEA agent (Laurence Fishburne, Mission: Impossible III) needs somebody to impersonate recently deceased druglord Bobby Z... and Tim happens to be a dead ringer. It's a risky proposition, but if Tim plays his part right, he may be able to claim Bobby Z's smoking hot ex-girlfriend (Olivia Wilde, Alpha Dog) and a cool fortune in illegal profits. Unfortunately, taking on Bobby Z's name also means taking on his bloodthirsty enemies. Caught in the crossfire, Tim runs for his life as he tries to find a way out of his deadly masquerade. Also starring UFC Light Heavyweight Champ Chuck Liddell.

3.0 out of 5 stars Different - but not all that bad! February 20, 2008
Format:DVD
I actually enjoyed the movie. I will admit that I felt lost in the beginning but as the plot unfolded, things started to make more sense. I believe the director intended for the viewer to discover the reason behind the chaos in real time, as the character did. In other other words, I don't think it was supposed to make sense until the end. Once the entire plot was revealed, the motivation behind the actions of the main characters became more clear.

Though not a blockbuster, the action was enjoyable and the some of the the scenery was absolutely beautiful. If you like "colorful" characters, off-beat humor, and a plot that is not "spoon-fed", you may want to give Bobby Z a spin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad July 11, 2008
Format:DVD
This movie deserves more respect as far as an action flick is concerned it is excelent. Now lets not compare it to the godfather or some other masterpiece. It is what it is a good entertaining action movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bobby Z March 9, 2010
Format:DVD
Tim Kearney is an incarcerated former Marine who is offered freedom by DEA agent Tad Gruzsa in exchange for impersonating recently-late drug lord Bobby Z. Things don't go as planned, however, and Kearney ends up on the run with Bobby Z's 12-year-old son. While it's no worse than much of the action movie junk that makes it to theatres, Bobby Z, originally entitled The Death and Life of Bobby Z, is a action thriller with Tim Kearney (Walker) as the hero. Filled with head scratching twists and cornball dialogue, this is not exactly a brilliant movie. Yet it's got a slick look and at least a few passably enjoyable action scenes. This movie is funny, entertaining and I enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars BOBBY Z A SURPRISE February 19, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had never heard of this movie which has several titles throughout the world like THE DEATH AND LIFE OF BOBBY Z, and KILL BOBBY Z. The Blu-ray disc is in PANAVISION 2.35:1, and it is superb quality. The movie is also action packed and very well acted and directed.Paul walker and Lawrence Fishburn were both very good in their roles. Not an academy award candidate, but surprisingly excellent entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - [...] - @tss5078 May 26, 2013
Format:DVD
Isn't it funny, how the movies you really don't expect much out of, turn out to be the most fun. Bobby Z wasn't something that was high on my list of things to see, but it was streaming and fit my mood, so I watched it and what a surprise, a well written, Action film, with a pretty good plot! Bobby Z is a legendary local crime boss in Southern California. He is a very elusive man that the Mexican drug lords go to extreme measures to find. Don Huertero (Joaquim de Almeida) has kidnapped an FBI agent and will only exchange him for Bobby Z, but there's a problem, Bobby Z is dead. The clever folks at the FBI decide to find someone who looks like Z and send him in, that man is Tim Kearney (Paul Walker), and his life depends on how well he can trick people into believing that he is Bobby Z, a man he's never met. Paul Walker is the star of this clever film and he does a tremendous job. I'm not fan of Walker's, whenever he does anything that isn't a gritty Action film, he stinks, fortunately this is a gritty Action film and he was engaging, delightful, and even funny as he tried to play someone he's not. As for the rest of the cast, it was certainly a unique mix of people, but being centered around one man and one goal, really made it work. It's unusual to find a deep plot in an Action film and that's why this film was so unique. Aside from some terrific stunts and fight scenes, there were twists and turns, crosses and double-crosses, even some humor. Bobby Z was really a lot of fun to watch, and it will keep you guessing while at the same time showing you some terrific action sequences, I was more than impressed by this film and by Paul Walker for that matter. It's easy to say, well he's been playing an undercover agent in The Fast & Furious for a decade now, but it certainly wasn't the same thing. The Death & Life of Bobby Z is a wild ride, that's a lot of fun, and it will keep you guessing, you can't ask for more than that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Read The Book Instead June 29, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of writer Don Winslow. I really enjoyed his book The Death and Life of Bobby Z. So I got a copy of this movies to see what the film version was like. The acting was wooden (even with a good actor like Lawrence Fishburne), but for the first half of the movie, it kept pretty much to the book. After it started deviating, the movie quickly went downhill.
My suggestion is get a copy of the book, and forget the movie.
