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.

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.

Deceiving, lying, and taking others for fools are deed seen from beginning to end. It begins slow detailing one story, then changes from that one to another totally different situation, and on and on to the last take. However, the end and conclusion were completely a surprise to the viewers. Great movie!!

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.

I found this movie to be more comical than anything. I absolutely loved it and thought Paul Walker was brilliant! I was expecting an action/drama type of film, but was very surprised when I started watching. Most of it was funny, but very good. 2 thumbs up! 👍👍

I was always a big admirer of Paul Walker and the Fast & Furious movies made him famous really "fast". Its a shame he died so young and in the peak of his acting career. I think his other movies such as Bobby Z here, Eight Below and Into the Blue are also excellent and he is phenomenal in those too. He really gets absorbed into his characters and portrays them well.
