This movie is your typical Jason Statham movie. ( I love his movies.) Full of action and fighting. He does such a good job with fight scenes. If I wanted to make a movie that was full of action and fighting, Jason would be my man. This movie is pretty interesting. I dont really care for the story line. Im not a huge fan of "bad guys" doing more bad things and then in the end get revenge, but are still "bad guys". Does that make any sense? haha. I prefer the good guy chasing down the bad guy. However this movie is good. I would recommend this as a redbox or live stream. I probably wouldnt buy it. Word of caution. There is strong language and also brief nudity in this show. Not for children. I rated R 17+June 17th, 2013 · Details

The answers are 1) no and 2) no. But maybe that's just my moral code getting in the way of fun... See Full Review

It is part of a welcome trend, or counter-trend, in action filmmaking, an effort to strip away the apocalyptic bloat and digital fakery that have overtaken the genre and return to its pulpy, nasty, mechanical roots... See Full Review
Despite an epic fight or two, ‚ÄúParker‚Äù robs us of the revenge, the suspense of the hunt, of Parker‚Äôs methodical way of tracking down those who betrayed him, one by one. It‚Äôs one thing to not literally repeat previous films of an oft-filmed tale. It‚Äôs another to make all these changes to the formula and not find one single surprise to shove in it...
