The Hollywood Reporter

By Stephen Farber
The picture is far from great, but it's a serviceable B-movie with some A-list talent on a slumming expedition.

Taylor Hackford directs crisply, unpretentiously. Patti LuPone goes Latina, playing Lopez's soap opera-addicted mom, and Bobby Cannavale is...

The tight-lipped, give-no-quarter Statham is impeccable as the pitiless yet honourable Parker (though fans of the books will no doubt...

Move over, Bond

By Reel_Deal_Gal
I really liked it a lot and am now a huge Jason Statham fan. Action, excitement, - totally kept me engaged and entertained - even at the 10:20 pm starting time. I see a sequel. I hope that isn't just...

McGlaughlin and JLo kill Parker

By mackpeak
Love Jason, great action and unique fights. They made a good action/character movie and then Jennifer showed up and said, “Hey, can I be in the movie although it’s already done?” Then they made up a...

satisfying shoot em up

By minnie_huntingtonbeach
Statham does not disappoint in this limited dialogue action thriller. There are lots of explosions and tense moments throughout. Lopez is not annoying unlike other films in which I have seen her. ...

PARKER

By imabigmoviefan
It was a fantastic, action packed movie. I was so glad J-Lo wasn't his love interest in this movie. There wasn't much sex, just lots of action and blood; like all of Jason Statham movies! GO SEE!!...

The second half is good.

By pedsarq
This is really two movies, a really bad one during the first half and a pretty good heist film during the second half. There's plenty of revenge and butt-kicking Jason-Statham-style. There are also...

Jason Stratham is an excellent actor. This movie was great from the beginning to the end. Action packed. Great story line and deliverence. Will see again....

Doesn't Disappoint...Good Plot, Well Executed...Lots Of Action.

By Alon Patterson
Jason Statham's movies are always action packed and this one is no exception. A better story here than most of his past attempts, coupled with Lopez, makes for a fine film. Although a bit formulaic...

Saw it last night. Jason was his usual bad-***self and did not disappoint in the action department. But Jennifer Lopez?? She was totally useless. All she did was f**k things up for Jason. She...

PARKER

By BEBER
We always love Jason Stratham, and his films. Love Jennifer Lopez, but, this part was beneath her acting talents. It did not make sense, she had street smarts, but, was dumb in so many other ways....
