a5c7b9f00b Parker is a thief who has an unusual code. He doesn't steal from the poor and hurt innocent people. He is asked to join four other guys on a job. They pull it off flawlessly. They tell Parker that what they got can help them set up another job which will net them much more. But Parker doesn't want to join them and asks for his share. But they need it all so they try to kill him. They dispose of his body but someone finds him–he is still alive–and takes him to the hospital. After recovering he sets out to get back at the ones who tried to kill him, another one of his codes. Despite being told that they are working for a known mobster which he was not aware of, he still wants to go after them. He learns where they are and poses as a wealthy Texan looking to buy a house. So he hires a real estate agent, Leslie Rogers to show him around. He is actually trying to find out where they're holed up. And when he finds it, he sets out on his plan to get them. But when they learn he is alive, they contact the mobster to take care of him. So the mobster sends a killer to take care of him. And Leslie also finds herself intrigued with him so she follows him.
A thief with a unique code of professional ethics is double-crossed by his crew and left for dead. Assuming a new disguise and forming an unlikely alliance with a woman on the inside, he looks to hijack the score of the crew's latest heist.
Jason Statham has been contributing apathy as of late. He's a very charismatic action star, and he's old school in his approach, but his recent movies have left me feeling flat, aside from the highly entertaining Expendable movies, and the surprisingly enjoyable Safe. He hasn't done a lot of entertaining stuff these days. Parker continues that trend, unfortunately. Parker doesn't really have that much action in it, and that's why I like Jason Statham. Aside from a bloody and intense fight scene that takes place in a hotel, this has a disappointing amount of action. I respect that he wants to expand his range, but this isn't the way to do it. He needs to start picking better scripts. He plays a great anti-hero as usual, but the script doesn't back him up. Jennifer Lopez is probably the best thing about this movie. She has really improved over the years when it comes to acting. She was funny and sympathetic. She does have a few good scenes with Statham as well. Michael Chiklis is OK as the villain, but nothing special. Nick Nolte provides solid support, but he doesn't have much screen time. <br/><br/>Final Thoughts: This is average stuff. It's worth a watch if you're a big Jason Statham fan, but you could do a lot better. Action junkies will most likely be bored. It's just rather mundane<br/><br/>4.9/10
And the verdict is: Michael Chiklis still hasn't given a performance worth watching since he starred in "The Shield". Directed by Taylor Hackford, who actually directed "Ray" (oh, how the mighty have fallen) and starring Jason Statham as the same character he plays in every movie, and Jennifer Lopez playing a sort of love interest character, who reeks of desperation (art imitating life perhaps?) "Parker" is neither a bad nor a good action film, but more so a forgettable one.<br/><br/>OK, so I won't bother with a synopsis here, or a critique of this pretty flimsy storyline, or discuss how Statham and Lopez have absolutely no chemistry, or even touch on Statham's horrid Texas accent, because in all actuality, nobody reading this cares; when a majority of audiences (men primarily) probably paid top box office prices for the sole purpose of catching the shot of Lopez's butt, which had been teased in the trailer. In fact, in the theater where I saw "Parker", soon after the scene in question (which occurs about an hour in) and this is no joke, there was a mass exodus consisting of male audience members, who undoubtedly saw what they came to see and were satisfied enough to go home without any interest in watching Statham do one of his Statham-esque, shoot everybody in the room more times than necessary, endings. So let's talk about that for a second: the rather gratuitous butt scene only lasts for all of a second, in a long shot no less (meaning, from pretty far away). So while you do see her butt in some polka dot underwear, the consensus has to be that if you were one of those who paid 10+ dollars to see this scene in particular, you may come out of "Parker" feeling more than a little cheated and probably ashamed.<br/><br/>Final Thought: If this is the type of movie that Jennifer Lopez is reduced to starring in, then it is no surprise that when recently confronted by Latin periodicals as to her level of interest in playing Jenni Rivera in the sure to be forthcoming biopic, her answer was resoundingly positive. I'm sorry to break this to all of the J Lo fans out there, but the simple truth is, at this juncture of her life, it would seem that she simply can't afford to turn down ANY ROLE presented to her.<br/><br/>Written by Markus Robinson, Edited by Nicole I.

Taylor Hackford directs crisply, unpretentiously. Patti LuPone goes Latina, playing Lopez's soap opera-addicted mom, and Bobby Cannavale is a Palm Beach cop with an eye for Leslie. The action is fast and furious.
