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 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.

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 very good contemporary urban noir. Jason is an old style hero, like a western one: silent yet troubled, pragmatic but intelligent and inspired by a superior sense of justice and revenge. Here is a sacrifical hero, and the story os not just a mere chance to see him fighting and kicking ass. There is an undergoing drama and an unspoken emotional and even sentimental reason that links him to an unlikely partner. But do not expect any hollywood development of the story: he's british, after all

I was immersed in this story straight away and felt fully involved all the way through. You might question some of the actions of the Nun but hey I don't have any experience of the underbelly of London, nor the pressures of keeping a faith - and wouldn't want to! Glad the final act was fulfilling and just deserts we're delivered! I'm not sure this film has been given the credit it deserves, it shows that Jason can deliver both action and pathos in one believable story, including pretending to be gay - for plot reasons!!

When you watch Jason Statham films you pretty much know what you are going to get and to a large degree this is no different. There is plenty of hand to hand fighting, a lot of dashing around and in this case an unusual female love figure. The story is basically a soldier suffering post traumatic stress disorder ends up living on the streets where an event places him in the position where he can get his life together and help those who have helped him. It's quite a clever film and enough content to keep you watching and interested in how it's all going to end. I quite enjoyed it although I couldn't say it's his best film. Only paid £3 so it was a good value action film for the money paid

OK so we generally love Mr Statham films, but this one just didn't do it for us. Not enough proper kick ass action which is what his movies should be all about. It's an ok way to spend a couple of hours, but nowhere near as good as the Mechanic or Transporter or the remake of the Italian Job.
