Trivia

While showing Parker a mansion in Palm Beach, Leslie inquires if he's married, and Parker tells her that his wife passed away. While Parker could be lying as part of his alias, this could be a reference to the first Parker novel "The Hunter" where Parker's wife commits suicide after he returns from being betrayed and left for dead by his wife and partner. "The Hunter" was previously adapted in John Boorman's Point Blank with Lee Marvin and Brian Helgeland's Payback with Mel Gibson. See more »

Goofs

When Parker slides under the garage door as it is closing (twice) at Melander's house, he would have broken the infra red safety beam, so the door should have stopped and re-opened, alerting Mr. Rodrigo and his gang. See more »

Good Action Thriller
23 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Parker (Jason Statham) is a thief with codes to live by. He is left for dead by his cohorts in crime when he refuses to join them for another heist. He vows to go after them and get what is his.

Seems that some big stars want to hitch their wagon to a profitable venture such as any Jason Statham movie. Here we have Jennifer Lopez doing that and when I first saw her name associated with this I knew 2-things: She would get a lot of screen time and many, many lines too. Okay, 3-three things: this won't be as good as other Jason Statham movies. I was in cringeville. And, then I watched the movie and was wrong, wrong, wrong. She did good. Who knew?

However, there was a difference with this movie. Most of the time Mr Statham's character goes about his business cutting down the bad guys without any real complication, but in here he meets his match with some bad guys who kind of beat the hell out of him. He still wins, but it's not easy. Some of the fight scenes were too real for me and I had to check myself into the local ER to make sure all was okay. I am fine. Thanks for asking.

Add to the beatings, we have Leslie (Jennifer Lopez) getting in the way of Parker's plan to take out the bad guys. Okay, we knew something like this would happen and we cringed for a bit, but we were pleasantly surprised that she did good. Who knew?

All in all a good action thriller as we would expect from any Jason Statham movie even with a star who hitched her wagon to a profitable venture…..but did good. Who knew? Nick Nolte and Michael Chiklis also star.

Will we see other big stars hitch their wagon to other successful ventures: Matt Damon, Bruce Willis, Arnold (hey, is he back?), Sylvester? Time will tell. We can only hope the scripts will be as good as this one was. Kudos. (7/10)

Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: Yes, briefly, 2-times.. Language: Yes, not much.
