Critic Reviews for Kobe Doin' Work

All Critics (2)

Despite some great game action and an in-depth narration from Bryant himself, the documentary falls into the trap of glitz and glamor distracting from the subject matter it's intending to celebrate.

For hoops junkies, this is a must-see picture, taking us inside the mind of one of the NBA's hardest-working, focused superstars.

Audience Reviews for Kobe Doin' Work

This movie was pretty much Kobe giving himself a handjob. I was extremely disappointed with the fact that Spike Lee attached his name to this project.

As a lifelong Laker fan (thanks to Magic), I probably enjoyed this film much more than, say, someone from Boston or San Antonio would. Giving Spike Lee access to 30 cameras allowed for a compelling look at a single basketball game and he did a fine job of turning this average regular season game into something approaching art. Unfortunately, Kobe's commentary didn't create any real story line nor did it provide any true insight and it just felt like I was watching a game with a talkative buddy. 5/19/9

Quite original but best suited for hardcore NBA fans. It focuses heavily on Kobe's experiences directly on the court, so someone with a casual interest in basketball may find this too specific. And of course, if you hate Kobe Bryant, you won't enjoy it.
