Bobby Z ★★ Let's Kill Bobby Z; The Life and Death of Bobby Z 2007 (R)

Lots of action and limited acting required. Con Tim Kear-ney (Walker) agrees to DEA agent Tad Grusza's (Fishburne) plan to pass himself off as missing surfer/drug dealer Bobby Z in order to get paroled. Seems drug lords are holding Grusza's partner hostage and they'll trade for Bobby. Things go wrong and Kearney goes on the lam with Bobby's ex-lover (Wilde) and his young son (Villareal). Based on “The Death and Life of Bobby Z” by Don Winslow. 97m/C DVD . Paul Walker, Laurence Fishburne, Olivia Wilde, Joaquim Almeida, J.R.
