Parker: Film Review

A very action-packed film handled bombastically by the unlikely chemistry of Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez, A classic Donald Westlake revenge movie, the film is the first to be allowed to use the character's real name from the novels, Parker is indeed a really heavily cliched and written horrible nevertheless it was unexpectedly entertaining and solid.

Set amidst the unparalleled wealth and glamor of Palm Beach, Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez team up to get their cut in the crime thriller PARKER based on the series of bestselling novels by Donald E. Westlake. The film is directed by Academy Award (R) nominee Taylor Hackford (Ray) and also stars Michael Chiklis, Wendell Pierce (HBO's The Wire) and Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte.

It's another typical Jason Statham, his films like Blitz, Safe, Crank, Killer Elite to name a few and believe me he have a dozen of that, and be ready his making another three movies namely Hummingbird, Homefront and Heat and as of the rest it's the same basic formula, a good guy is seeking a revenge for leaving him to death, isn't that wonderful.

Jason Statham making this kind of movies over and over again is like pissing on the same side of the street, albeit he have a great chemistry with the charming Jennifer Lopez, but yet it doesn't save the movie, it's just add depth and additional impact, but then Parker brought up some tensions and could lightly be on your edge of your seat.

Parker is nothing but another your typical action movie, but it's another proven formula that has been used many time, it's another middling action film, that is good but not perfect, terrible but not the worst and yet been directed by Taylor Hackford the director of Ray , and yes Parker isn't memorable and could be easily forgotten.

The film could been easily be more great, as it for the screenplay it was pretty horrible and nonsense but it does combine great action scenes and tensions but it will tease you if it an action-thriller film or another cheesy romance film, check out for yourself and i would say that Parker is a pass.

2.5 out of 5 stars
