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!

There seems to be 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, the new Jason Statham film?", to which the reply was, basically every time, something like "I'm not really an action movie person". It's understandable where people get the idea from that 'the new Jason Statham film' will be more in the same vain as some of his previous action outings such as The Transporter or Crank - he's got that kind of following, I suppose. However, as I find with many films, if you are prepared to set aside any preconceptions and give it a chance, Hummingbird will not disappoint.

Before I'd even seen the film, I saw a 2 star review on a website. Frankly, I think whoever is writing these 2 star reviews needs to pull their head out of their arse. I'm sure they would instantly change it to a 4 or star 5 review if the lead role was played by a more fashionable actor, rather than that guy from The Expendables.

The story is rich, without being over complicated. It fits together perfectly. It filled me with love, hate, hope and despair. 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.

A grittier and more serious outing for Mr Statham who shows that he can seriously act. The film is not void of the typical fight scenes which are well choreographed, numerous and graphic. Cinematography is spot on as is picture quality on DVD and it's great seeing it based in London.
Agata Buzek gives a well rounded performance, complimenting and perhaps enhancing that of Jason's and this pair do go well together in the context of the moving storyline.
The end result, in my opinion, is a well deserved five stars for a film which will stand a repeat performance.

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.

Jason Statham is usually in all out action movies that are very brilliant indeed. Statham is in a lot of good films eg. "The Mechanic", "Killer Elite", "Blitz", "The Expendables" etc. But this is different from any other film he has done. It's a powerhouse thriller that is going to be on your mind for ages after you watch. It really is a powerful film with an absolutely brilliant performance by Statham.

Statham plays the role of Joey Jones an ex-special forces officer on the run. He is homeless and lost in a deadly haze of drugs and drink. He attempts to piece his life back together with the help of Sister Christina, a nun helping the poor. Joey gets employed as a collector by the local mob boss. He soon learns the identity of a friends murderer and bent on revenge he finds himself sinking deeper into a dark world of violence and brutality.

The film has positive reviews about it which list this film as the performance of Statham's career. You can see why. It's definitely one of the best films he has ever done. It is a thriller so if you are expecting all out action then this film is not for you. However if your a proper film fan or your into more of a complex variety of films then this is definitely worth a watch. The film has everything, a great story, great acting, great characters & dialogue. It's an AMAZING journey.

In my opinion I think it is an absolute masterpiece that I have already watched multiple times after buying it from Amazon the day of it's release and am going to watch many more times. This is truly one those great films that raises the bar as a landmark in film making. There really are no words that sum up the brilliant performance by Statham. Absolutely outstanding film. Loved every bit of it.
