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.

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.

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.

Possibly overated drama, because that's what it essentially is a drama with some action (mostly street fights).

Hummingbird or Redemption as its also known is by no means a bad film, but it is slow in places.

If you've read the reviews you will know this is a change of pace movie for Statham, more character study than all out macho thriller.

That's fine, drama is good, but it still needs a bit of oomph to make it move. Not that this film doesn't get to where it is going, it just seems by the end some might wonder is that it?

Statham plays a haunted ex vet who lives on the streets of London mostly drunk, until he finds an empty apartment owned by a rich guy who is away for a few months.

He cleans himself up gets an underworld job, develops a relationship with a kindly nun who's helped him in the past, and sets about avenging the brutal death of a fellow homeless freind.

These strands of plot all weave quite nicely together but the pace is slow.

To make up for that the cinematography and music score is brilliantly used making the night streets of London almost its own character.

A watchable film but no classic.

Joey (Jason Statham) is a vet with severe PTSD. He lives as a street urchin and knows the nun Cristina (Agata Buzek) from the soup kitchen. After getting beat up pretty bad, he stumbles upon some "luck." He cleans up his act and gets a job at a Chinese kitchen, where the owner discovers Joey can hurt people (never mind the two broken ribs he is nursing). Joey becomes their muscle. His character is a confused mess of being altruistic, vigilante, and bad man.

He feels he must avenge the death of another street urchin, although her character and their relationship had about zero development. The action scenes are quick while there are long scenes of him having conversation with a nun, which seriously is not Statham's long suit. If you want to just watch the beat 'em up Statham, you can fast forward through 95% of the film.

I am not sure why Statham decided to take on such a complex character, he doesn't pull it off too well. 3 stars is a stretch.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief audio sex and nude pictures of men.
