Product Description

From the award winning team behind Eastern Promises, comes the story of an ex-Special Forces soldier, Joey Jones (played by Jason Statham), who has found himself homeless on the streets after going on the run from a military court-martial. One night he breaks into an apartment in Covent Garden and finds that the luxury penthouse will be empty for three months. He finds a credit card, car keys and a full bank account for him to plunder but, instead, he decides to use the opportunity to get clean and get a job. He gives up booze and drugs and finds work as a dish washer in a Chinese restaurant. But before long, his talents are touted by a Chinese gangster boss who recruits him as a driver and enforcer. Joey rises through the ranks of the underworld in Soho – but he never forgets his old friends on the streets.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be disappointed. 5 July 2013
Format:DVD
There is quite a lot of prejudice against "action films" among film critics and regular cinema-goers alike. I am studying film at university, and I regularly sit in a room full of people from around the world who I know for a fact would laugh in my face if I told them I'd just bought a Jason Statham film on DVD. For example, I said to several people this week: "Have you seen Hummingbird, that new Jason Statham film?", to which the reply was, basically every time, something like "Erm... no, I'm not really an action movie person". It's understandable where they've got the idea from that 'the new Jason Statham film' is going to be more of the same from previous outings such as The Transporter or Crank - he's got that kind of following, I suppose.

Before I'd even seen the film, I saw a 2 star review on a website. Frankly, whoever is writing these 2 star reviews needs to pull their head out of their arse. They're the sort of people who would in an instant change it to a 4 or star 5 review if the lead role was played by a more fashionable actor rather than 'that thug Jason Statham'. As with many films, if you're willing to open your mind and give Hummingbird a chance, you won't be disappointed.

The story is complex, without being over complicated. It fits together perfectly. It filled me with love, hate, hope, despair and pain. It will break your heart, but in such a poetic way that you want it to keep going. Whether you like it or not Jason Statham is perfect for the job. Hummingbird is a Jason Statham film, but that doesn't mean it's a pedal to the metal, blood splattered explosion.

Agata Buzek who plays Cristina had previously flown under my radar, but having seen Hummingbird, I will certainly be investigating her previous and looking forward to her future work.

4.0 out of 5 stars STATHAM STUNS! SHADES OF BOGART AND BERGMAN! 7 Mar 2014
By RouX
Format:Blu-ray
I've never really thought of Jason Statham as a great actor, but he certainly delivers in 'Redemption' (aka: Mockingbird). The film is a top notch thriller and a great social commentary too.

Joey (Jason Statham) is wracked with guilt from all the killing he did in Afghanistan, but what can trained killers do, when they return home from wars? Keep on killing? Or drink themselves insensible so that they are no longer a danger to anyone? Joey chooses the latter, but fate drags him back to sobriety and more killing. The relationship between Joey and Sister Christina is like the melding of two damaged souls, it is seriously so well handled it is hard to imagine even Bogart and Bergman playing it better.

A country mile from the more formulaic of his films, but his fans will still find plenty to enjoy. Some realistic fight scenes that don't disappoint. Watching even the toughest looking baddie vs Joey is like watching a mouse vs a mouse trap. Definitely one of the very best films Jason Statham has been involved in. Definitely not your average JS movie, but quite possibly his best.

I got this because Jason Statham was in it but this, I think, was not his best film by a long way. Shame.
