Share

Set amidst the unparalleled wealth and glamor of Palm Beach, Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez team up to get their cut in the crime thriller PARKER based on the series of bestselling novels by Donald E. Westlake. The film is directed by Academy Award (R) nominee Taylor Hackford (Ray) and also stars Michael Chiklis, Wendell Pierce (HBO’s The Wire) and Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte.

PROS

  • Great actions scenes

CONS

  • Story line was too thin .
  • The inclusion of Jennifer Lopez’s character was unnecessary .

FAVORITE QUOTE

Parker: When I say I’ll going to do something I always follow through… always.

Parker: It’s not about the money, it’s about the principle.

CONCLUSION

Parker , is a good Saturday afternoon action movie , but it will not leave you with any lasting impressions . Jason Statham is a reliable action star ,but other than that ,the movie really doesn’t have much too it . The plot  is too thin and doesn’t really give a reason to what is happening . Jennifer Lopez was redundant  in this movie . She was basically there just for eye candy , as her character could easily be done away with and would have no effect the plot . To see her wasted here, forced to behave girlishly and neurotically and eventually become a hostage, is insulting because she is a talented actress . All-in-All it is an OK movie for a lazy afternoon.
