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 #76 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Our family has made a significant investment in a dedicated home theatre. Upon reading nearly every other home theatre publication, I have found that Widescreen Review has consistently provided us accurate reviews, and as such have built a substantial library of movies and equipment, which we consider “Keepers.” I find the equipment reviews, especially the Subwoofer Special Edition, to be right on the money and a must-have. The video equipment reviews (we are currently in the market for a front projector) are educationally based as well as comparatively based, so I learn about equipment in general while I can compare specifications. I thank you for a publication well worth the cover price issue after issue.
