A word for word scene by scene adaption of the book. (by nathan-yeo)
I bought this book in the black author section of a MILITARY PX AAFES , So you could imagine my surprise when I opened it up and was reading about a Mathew Mc- kind-of-gay toe headed surfer drug dealer type. I read the book and this is a word for word scene by scene adaption of the book, well the crib sheet of the book. Several scenes of the book were not in it for time and budgetary reasons. A' la one of Bobby-Z's great escapes took place in a crowded theme park, and to film that with the cost of X-tras and such would have added an easy cool million. They also let off all of <more>
Booby-Z's desert storm flash-back as well. The final scene shoot-out was a down-play as well but all the characters were there. Obviously this well a well produced, they didn't skimp on the production values but they did on scenes and such. The opening desert body for body exchange should have been what pre-ceded , the post shoot-out desert scene that was in "No country for old-men." WIth the trucks and dead Mexican Mafia hench-men laying every-where. But it was scaled down, again for budgetary and time restraints. Paul WALKER was perfectly cast as a Mathew McCONAUGHEY's younger edgier little brother. A three time loser who's winning at escaping the feds, the cartel, and the bikers who are trying to kill him. I read the book, this is the book, I got what I came for PERIOD.
I was toggling back & forth between the Wisconsin Badgers Football season opener & this movie on DVR AND IT WAS COMPELLING ENOUGH that for awhile I forgot to flip back to the game!!! So obviously I have no idea why this audience-tested badly or why people think Paul Walker can't act. Plus he's got a great cast to back him up...The mystery of why this was going down hooked me early & I cared about what happened to these people at least the good guys For the girl-watchers out there ~ Olivia Wild is jaw-droppingly GORGEOUS!! I Can't believe I've seen movies with her <more>
in them before & not noticed!!! Definitely worth the rental price if you have to go that route.
The Death and Life of Bobby Z is an action thriller with great action, humour, great fight scenes and an excellent storyline. The film which stars Paul Walker, Laurence Fishburne, Olivia Wilde, J.R Villarreal, Jason Flemyng, Keith Carradine, Joaquim De Almeida, Chuck Liddell and Jason Lewis is also absolutely brilliant and has some excellent acting by these actors. I loved watching the film because it had so many great things about it and I love Paul Walkers acting as well as some of his other skills such as his fighting skills. I have 17 of Paul Walkers films on DVD and I love to watch his <more>
films which shows him fighting because he is an excellent fighter. The film is awesome, has some great fight scenes and Paul Walkers fighting was awesome and powerful. If he was living he would have been a Black Belt in Brazilian Ju Jitsu. Laurence Fishburnes acting in this film was also absolutely brilliant and he did the role of Tad Grusza brilliantly and he was amazing. The humour in this film was also great and I really enjoyed watching this film and will definitely watch it again. This film is tense and the action in this film is excellent and great to watch.
Paul Walker delivers to us a great action film once again!!! (by dustinhunter707)
I was expecting some good stuff from this movie because I am a Paul Walker fan, plus he has never been in a horrible movie and Running Scared was one of the greatest action dramas ever made. I also loved many of his other films such as The Fast and The Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Joyride, and Into The Blue. Anyways back to his newest movie that I saw last night, Bobby Z. Like I said I expected some good action from this and I was more than pleased by the storyline, the numerous action scenes, and the load of stars that follow Walker in the film such as Lawrence Fishburne, Olivia Wilde, Jacob <more>
Vargas, and more. I have actually heard a few people say that Paul is a horrible actor, but they just need to keep their mouths shut because they don't know what they are talking about. Paul Walker has delivered good entertainment to the audience every since The Fast and the Furious and he's a great actor if you ask me. Bobby Z is probably one of the best straight to DVD movies I have ever seen, it delivers good action along with a tricky side that you never see coming. I give this movie a 9 out of 10 because of the tremendous action and simply macho portrayal of it by Paul Walker. He's a great actor and no one thought this movie was going to be good before they seen it so I hope they believe me now. I highly recommend this movie if you are a Paul Walker fan like me or if you are an action junkie like me. 9 out of 10, best straight to DVD rating from me ever!!!
I think he is a very good actor! In the film running scared,he's cool , man! I like his performance!He's so talented and better than ever before.But I also think he need to jump out the same kind of movie.I also believe that he can deduce other kinds of personality well.'Cause I still believe.HAHA,did all u guys find that In the ending of this film he brought up the kid just like the film running scared'ending.So I think he always wants to be a good papa! HOHO.This is a very good film though,it's very simple,but it can help me to pass the time by not letting me sleepy.But <more>
y all u gays gave this film a so low score. I'm just confused.
I saw this movie last night at a special screening for audience feedback. Paul Walker really can act - I was pleasantly surprised. I originally thought he was only cast for his looks, but can see he has good acting abilities.Movie was funny, worked well and I enjoyed it. The action scene in the kitchen was great and intense, kept me on the edge of my seat.Lawrence Fishburn - as always - great! He's a solid actor and his role as the DEA Agent worked perfectly.Paul's pretty love interest Olivia Wilde from the OC chemistry was lacking.Chuck Liddell, although was only in the beginning of <more>
the movie was convincing. There was also a girl named Ashley who I would have like to see more of. She's hot! The kid looks like he'll have a career ahead of him. The relationship between the kid and Paul Walker worked well and was believable. Not sure where I've seen him before, but he may have a promising career.I liked the sequence of the movie - it starts with a mystery and the flashback kept me trying to figure out what was going to happen next. I liked the movie can't wait to see on see it on the big screen. Hope if comes out soon.
I quite like Paul Walker, just the way he did in Running Scared and Into the Blue. Though his act is still so so, but frankly he show lots of fun in his movies. Walker done best portraying a rebellious smart-ass in his movies. Bobby Z is taken into this account. Fishburne as always, doing great. But Olivia is lack in her role, needs to show in more persuasive: . I think the director doing so well to deliver a crunchy, easy to chew, and also entertaining flick. Plus, the plot kept you eager to know the whole story, as it started with mystery and show its cover during the story goes. I can say, <more>
I'm having fun watching this flick. Thus, I can give this 8 out of 10 for satisfying the audience with fun.

Almost non-stop action. Tim Kearney Paul Walker is a former Marine, and a three time loser and is serving his time in prison. His life has the chance to change when a scheming DEA agent, Ted Gruza Laurence Fishburne , needs somebody to impersonate drug lord Bobby Z Jason Lewis , who has died of a heart attack while in a prison in the Philippines. Gruza wants to trade Bobby for a DEA agent held in Mexico. Kearney is a dead ringer and sees his chance to pull a double cross and remain a free man. Soon things go awry and he is chased by a biker gang, Mexican drug profiteers and Gruza with his own <more>
agenda. Tim gets valuable help from one of the real Bobby Z's ex-girlfriends Olivia Wilde . Plenty of explosive action and a story that sucks you in. Others featured: Keith Carradine, Rebecca Chaney, Joaquim De Almeida, Jason Flemyng and JR Villarreal.
