Let’s Kill Bobby Z
Tim Kearny doesn’t have much luck it seems. After having been arrested multiple times for minor offences he arrives in jail where he gets in trouble with the leader of a local biker gang. He kills the guy and it looks like he won’t be alive for much longer anymore. But then his luck turns. DEA agent Tad Gruzsa’s partner is being held by drug dealer Don Huertero and Huertero wants to swap him for Bobby Z with whom he wants to set up a business. However, Bobby Z is dead and Grusza now wants Kearny to take Z’s place in exchange for his liberty. Kearny accepts but the deal goes wrong and he end up at Huertero’s mansion where he’s got no choice than to continue playing the act of being Bobby Z, a famous and rich drug dealer.
Sound and Vision:
There are some minor compression errors present but other than that there’s nothing to complain about when it comes to the visual quality of this dvd. The image is sharp, has bright colors, plenty of detail, and in general looks good.
The sound comes with a DTS track that does its job nicely with good use of the surround speakers for environment sounds as well as good support from the subwoofer overall. Dialogues are always crystal clear.
Let’s Kill Bobby Z is a direct-to-dvd movie that Warner decided not to release in theaters after mediocre responses from screening viewers. With all the crap that we get to see at the movies these days, however, I’m sure this one wouldn’t have done much worse than the rest. The film is a combination of action and comedy and although there aren’t any really great jokes, the movie does manage to entertain. Don’t expect to see a classic or anything, but it certainly is worth checking out once.
If you’ve got some spare time and nothing else to do, you probably can’t get wrong with this one.
