4.0 out of 5 stars Honour among thieves, 14 Oct 2013
This review is from: Parker [DVD] (DVD)
I wanted to give this film 3 and a half stars but I though it deserved a round up rather than a round down. Jason Statham stars as Parker a master thief with "Principles". After watching the film what this means is do not cross him and you will be fine. After pulling off a difficult heist and impressing; his current crew asks him to join them on their next venture. When he refuses they try to kill him, emphasis on try, he takes at least 3 bullets but still survives.

Now it is payback time. The trouble is the gang is very well connected to a top gangster in Chicago. Of course this means nothing to Parker, but it could be trouble for him friends and family, luckily they are not new to this and can take care of themselves. While gathering information on his old friends Parker comes across Jlo, a down on her luck real-estate agent with nothing to lose. She knows Parker is up to something but she wants in.

Even though it is based on a novel Statham plays Parker in the same style he would the Transporter. The template for his tough guys he tends to play. This is a good film, nothing ground breaking but it kept my interest; it is more blood and guts than big explosions. A good film to watch if nothing else is on. In fairness this is one of Statham's better films since the Transporter he sticks to what he is good at nothing wrong with that.
