Parker

3

Jason Statham is smooth criminal

It's the first time he's been called Parker on screen, but author Donald E. Westlake’s long-running anti-hero has been adapted before in the likes of Point Blankand Payback

Both filmsget a cheeky nod at the start of Taylor Hackford’s thriller, in which thief-for-hire Jason Statham finds himself double-crossed and out for revenge. 

It’s a fertile set-up, complemented by not only one of Statham’s more charismatic tough-guy turns but a sparky performance from Jennifer Lopez as an estate agent-cum- love interest. 

This is no Out Of Sight, but it’s a capable mix of character beats and smooth criminality.
