Customer Reviews

So, basketball players can definitely look at this DVD as really instructional.
Dennis A. Amith (kndy)
See, Kobe doesn't care what people think about him, and if he makes a mistake, he quickly owns up to it.
Sean Pasek
It really showed Kobe's knowledge of the game, and makes you really look at him in a different light.

"Kobe Doin' Work" is a short documentary with the goal of showing a part of the game that people have never seen before. Spike Lee chose Kobe Bryant because he is not only the greatest player in the game right now but because of the impact he has on his team. If you watch this film, you will understand why they call the Lakers "Kobe's Team." You will also gain a new respect for Kobe who has proven to be the reason for Laker success. Despite the game being a blowout for the Lakers, it is interesting to hear what exactly goes through Kobe's mind. Spike shot Kobe beautifully and succeeded in in getting his vision across. This film is not for everyone. Only the Laker faithfull and true basketball players can appreciate this insightfull documentary.

I got a chance to watch this on ESPN and had high hopes that it would be very good. Not exactly what I was expecting. Basically you get Kobe with a hidden mic during a game and as the game (between L.A. and Spurs) goes on Kobe is watching the game and commenting on what he was thinking at that very moment. It's like watching a dvd with commentary option set to on. The game itself was boring as you sit there watching and thinking, "wow...is this going to get good?" I think of highlights from Jordan days and his films being like, "wow.....that was amazing...." Kobe has plenty of highlights they could have mixed in or at least on a bonus disc but this was as bland as a popcorn rice cake.

The nice part in the documentary is getting on the inside. Getting in the locker room and seeing what goes on was nice. The whole idea is good but it really just wasn't interesting. Kobe fumbled alot when in the game and the film crew was trying very hard to capture this awesome moment and.......just didn't get it. The only nice parts in the movie where when they showed his family and his daughters at the end. Very touching but in terms of "execution" of the film and basketball? Not entertaining. I rate it three stars just because I'm a Kobe fan. Just was expecting more from Spike on this one. It was okay to watch once....but that's about it. Nothing to go running to your friends to strongly suggest. Nice to see good team play but it looked like a bad game for Kobe overall on the film.

Now if Spike could have only captured the game against Toronto where Kobe dropped 81 points. That would have been great to see. I'd rather watch that game in it's full length than watch this movie again.

Format: DVD
During the 2007-2008 season, the Los Angeles Lakers found its groove as the team had the best record in the West, Kobe Bryant who started out the season with media questioning if he will continue to be a Laker answered all questions on the court as he had a magnificent year and many people feeling the young basketball star deserves to be the MVP.

Unfortunately for Lakers fans, that same season, the team came up short in the championship series against the Boston Celtics but rebounded the following year winning the championship in 2008-2009 and many praised the leadership of Bryant.

But director Spike Lee wanted to create a film and give fans a chance to see the real Kobe Bryant before, during and after a game. So, Kobe Bryant, Coach Phil Jackson and the Los Angeles Lakers organization let Spike Lee have Bryant mic'd, 30 cameras all over the stadium all focusing on Kobe Bryant and capturing not only the athlete in play but also giving people the chance to hear all the trash talking, the play calling, what goes on in the bench, what goes on during half time and just unlimited access to Kobe Bryant as the Los Angeles Lakers took on the San Antonio Spurs for a pivotal game that would give the Lakers home court advantage.

You literally start off when Kobe arrives to the Staples Center and watch him how he prepares and watch him lead and encourage the team through four quarters. Although the full game is not shown, you do get over an hour of basketball footage and hear how things are on the court uncensored.

While watching the film, you can hear audio commentary by Kobe Bryant as he explains certain scenes from the game and also his conversations with director Spike Lee.

Format: DVD
There's a jokey, fun-loving side to Kobe Bryant's personality, and we've seen flashes of it in interviews and in behind-the-scenes locker room stuff. KOBE DOIN' WORK, in spots, does demonstrate this lightheartedness. But Kobe, who provides the commentary for this documentary, seems focused on informing the audience of his thought processes as he surveys the floor and on delving into the strategies behind the plays which unfold. For pure basketball fans, Kobe's articulate but dry assessments make for a fascinating listen. It's certainly enlightening stuff and you can't help but note his love for the game and the sheer competitive nature of the guy. But if you're a casual hoops person, you might yawn a few times.

The director here is Spike Lee and he sums up this documentary nicely: "This film is about one great player, one day, on the job." He also says, "We just wanted to capture how Kobe sees the game." and that also sums it up nicely. On April 13, 2008, during the 2007-08 NBA season, Spike Lee was granted access and a lot of leeway to the tune of 30 cameras which tracked a miked-up Kobe Bryant as the Los Angeles Lakers played their perennial rivals, the San Antonio Spurs, in one of those statement games, these two teams jockeying for playoff position in the Western Conference.

This is all 20/20 hindsight talk but Spike Lee should've picked another game to film. Like maybe the barnburner in which Kobe scored 61 points against the New York Knicks. That same evening, Kobe recorded his commentary for this documentary, and he was certainly busting Spike's chops enough about his record-setting performance over Spike Lee's beloved Knicks. Against the Spurs Kobe didn't have as luminous an accounting, although he certainly had his fingerprints all over that game.
