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.

Very different from the start and quite unexpected so gather up and read, He is a bum a useless person until he gets pushed to the limit so now he has got to tidy up his act and become a gentleman just to take revenge. He takes someone else's home and wont take no for an answer so don't upset him, The upper class isn't his style but things are only for the taking anyway. The things he does and the ideas keep coming thick and fast so put on your running shoes to keep up with this show. First class acting with a story line like this you have got it made. Now not to much more as over doing it by telling all spoils it, so I rated this an A grade plus for the holding of my interest from beginning to end, with so much fantastic ideas that will have you glued to the chair with so much excitement you won't know where you are. Gather up the popcorn grab the movie, well try to relax with your feet up and watch a fabulous movie, now get ready for a great night of entertainment and watch out for the oops, sorry no more enjoy!

This is your typical Jason Statham film, however, with a bit of a twist, as at the start he is really in a bad way. If you like Statham's films you will like this.

A fine film with Jason Statham in the role of Joey the Afghan war veteran suffering from PTSD on the run and wanted by the establishment. Statham's Joey has been reduced to a street living underdog hiding and trying to forget his past. He is joined by Agata Buzek as Christina the nun who bumps into Joey while running a soup kitchen.

Joey eventually picks himself out of the gutter and tries to put himself right but fate intervenes. Alcohol on Joey has a calming effect. When he is sober and fit he tends to solve problems directly the only way a trained soldier can do - with plenty of violence - before hitting the bottle again.

A film that is deeper than your average Statham movie and has some subtle performences from the actors. The film has many generous and well filmed views of central London which adds to the atmosphere of the film.

Statham film. What more can I say. Doesn't disappoint at all when I watched it I thought maybe it would have been better with a happier ending, to c him go off with Christina. But it's not a happy ending film and he'd always have his demons. Watch it an see what I mean
Defo 1 of his best with a bit of a difference to his other movies

Another of Jason stathhams great films. Interesting watch. Not what you expect with an unusual storyline. Still plenty of JS at his best.

You always know that you will get a good watchable film when Jason Statham is the star and this one did not disappoint. Slightly different though as there were no car chase scenes at all.
