Jason Statham’s 7 Best Movie Roles, From ‘The Italian Job’ to ‘Crank’

Jason Statham’s 7 Best Movie Roles, From ‘The Italian Job’ to ‘Crank’
Now that Daniel Day-Lewis has entered retirement from acting, it might be time to give Jason Statham his due. Over the course of the last two decades, the bullet-shaped Brit has been a much-needed shot in the arm for action cinema, electrifying the genre with his unique blend of swagger and charisma. It’s fun to watch him drive a car really fast, it’s fun to watch him shoot bad guys with one arm while holding a baby with the other, and it’s really fun to watch him do both of those things in the same movie. What the 51-year-old star lacks in versatility, he more than makes up for in self-assurance — no one else on his level is as comfortable in who he is, and what he can do. We suspect that’s a lesson a giant shark is about to learn the hard way.

My Generation documentary review: when London was swinging

MaryAnn’s quick take… A brilliantly thrilling look back at the flowering of creativity and freethinking spirit of 1960s London, through the thoroughly charming perspective of Michael Caine. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(learn more about this)

I have never felt sorry to have missed the 1960s (I didn’t come along until the final few months of that decade) until I saw the brilliantly thrilling documentary My Generation last year at London Film Festival. Now it’s available on DVD and streaming (in the UK), so everyone can — and should — check out its can’t-miss look at how the burgeoning youth culture of that decade, particularly the hugely influential flowering of it that was centered in London, changed the world forever.

NCIS: Los Angeles Season 1 Episode 17 Review: "Full Throttle"

If you're a car guy, or girl, last night's NCIS: Los Angeles was right up your alley. If you're not, fortunately, there was still plenty of lighter fare to keep you entertained.

As we talked about in our NCIS review earlier, sometimes it's best when the mystery only comprises a portion of the episode, allowing the characters to carry the rest.

This was certainly true Tuesday on NCIS: La, and hopefully is a sign of things to come. Check out our recap for the basic plot, then read our review of "Full Throttle" ...

The team investigates the death of James Rush, a young Naval officer killed when his car suddenly explodes in an apparent sabotage attempt during an illegal street race.

Racing To The Scene: Kensi and Callen are on the case.

However, we learn that the suspected rival was Rush’s girlfriend, who raced under a male persona. Suspicious,

NCIS: Los Angeles Season 1 Episode 15 Review: "The Bank Job"

It's possible that the surprise twist on last night's NCIS: Los Angeles would have worked had Dom not actually gone missing two weeks ago, but probably not quite as well.

With that in the back of the viewer's mind, it was very easy to think when Kensi took three shots to the chest early that it was curtains for her as well, or at least could be.

Then when Sam took one in the shoulder before the last commercial break? Wow. Our episode recap has the basic plot details. Below, TV Fanatic reviews "The Bank Job" ...

Kensi is shot trying to break up an L.A. bank robbery in the opening sequence. She's in there in street clothes, but tangles with one of the gunmen and is overpowered.

Flash back 24 hours earlier. In Iraq, Islamic terrorists hijack a truck with $5 million. The money is traced back to the U.

Exclusive Interview with McLaren director Roger Donaldson

Paul Risker chats with McLaren director Roger Donaldson

“Every movie is different” says filmmaker Roger Donaldson. “There are always so many things to keep you interested and so I’m not bored yet.” The story of racing driver, constructor and engineer Bruce McLaren has become the primary focus of Donaldson. It is one that has seen him transition away from a long series of narrative features including: Cocktail, Species, Dante’s Peak and The Recruit, to direct documentary McLaren. While the Cold War drama Thirteen Days indicates his interest in real life stories, his 1971 documentary short Burt Munro: Offerings to the God of Speed, and 2005 narrative feature The World’s Fastest Indian starring Anthony Hopkins as Burt Munro, connects merges his three interests of life, fiction and racing.

Mechanic: Resurrection Review

Since his breakout role as a modern action icon in The Transporter, Jason Statham has played similarly steely-eyed badasses time and again, including in franchises like The Expendables and The Fast and the Furious. Given Statham’s real-life martial arts skill, rugged good looks and undeniable charisma, it’s no wonder that every studio in Hollywood is dying to build an ongoing series of films around the international superstar. However, as is known to happen in the business, this thirst for long-term profits can often result in films that are so devoid of purpose or substance that they may as well not exist at all.

Take The Mechanic, for example. The 2011 film – itself a remake of a 1972 release starring Charles Bronson (Death Wish) – made just $29 million domestically against a production budget of $40 million, but its $62 million worldwide cume was apparently strong enough for Summit Entertainment to eventually develop a sequel.
