Ex-Marine and convict Tim Kearney (Walker) is marked for death by the Arian Brotherhood gang while serving his sentence. He is unexpectedly given a chance to walk out of jail alive by a scheming DEA Agent (Fishburne). All he has to do is impersonate the infamous but recently deceased drug-lord Bobby Z. Based on the novel by Don Winslow. Special features are limited to previews and Behind The Scenes Of Bobby Z (11 minutes). Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD has a generally pleasing image, with good detail and sharpness. Black levels are deep and shadow delineation is solid, helping create a very dimensional-looking picture. Colors are generally balanced nicely, but they can look artificially saturated in some outdoor scenes. Edge enhancement does not become too big of a problem, other than over high-contrast transitions, but pixel breakup and compression artifacts can be problematic. Many scenes look good, but there are too many inconsistencies. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #37 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
The magazine provides no bull, solid technical information that is truly useful to me. The product reviews are excellent for helping me decide what to purchase. The DVD software reviews also help me to decide what movies are reference quality to add to my collection. I also love that the issues are not stuffed full of advertisements.
