Director: Taylor Hackford; Screenwriter: John J McLaughlin; Starring: Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Chiklis, Wendell Pierce, Clifton Collins Jr, Nick Nolte, Bobby Cannavale; Running time: 118 mins; Certificate: 15

Movie double-acts don't come much more mismatched than Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez in Parker, a bone-crunching action-thriller based on Donald E Westlake's (under the pen name Richard Stark) long-running pulp character. The film is meat and drink for Statham, who fits the role of a laconic career criminal like a glove, but his high profile co-star is all lost at sea amid the bullets and blood of Taylor Hackford's film.

Statham's eponymous protagonist strides into this story (based on Westlake's novel Flashfire) disguised as a priest at a county fair. He's part of a five-man heist team - alongside Michael Chiklis, Wendell Pierce, Clifton Collins Jr and Michah Hauptman - who make away with substantial loot, but are plotting an even more ambitious robbery. »
