Parker

Starring: Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Chiklis

Directed by Taylor Hackford

Rated R

  

Jason Statham might be the least ambitious man in Hollywood.  The guy has talent.  Sure, he probably won’t ever win, or even be nominated for an Oscar but the guy has proven that even in his worst films; he isn’t the worst thing about them (that’s not a backhanded compliment, by the way).  But Statham doesn’t stray too far from his typical character archetype.  And with that comes films that without his participation would never see the light of day in an actual movie theater.  They make money though (pretty much all of it overseas) and so he keeps churning out cheap movies, clinging to his character archetype, laughing all the way to the bank.

Parker is, like most Statham movies, full of ambitious ideas.  Ideas that at some point get lost »
