Richard Stark's Parker novels have been adapted previously, in movies like Point Blank and the Mel Gibson remake Payback; The Split; The Outfit and the weakest of the bunch by far, Slayground starring a well-cast Peter Coyote as Parker in a very poorly made film. Jason Statham would seem to be a good fit for the part but the version of Parker on display here is easily the nicest of the bunch, much more so even than Mel Gibson in the theatrical cut of Payback (he famously re-shot a third of the movie because he didn't think his character was likable enough). This Parker is a softie who likes animals, loves his girl and is extremely loyal to his partner (who is also his girl's father). This Parker is such a nice guy he talks an armed guard down from a panic attack in the middle of a robbery. As Statham vehicles go this is above average in terms of plot but it lacks the lean no-nonsense flavor of most Richard Stark movie adaptations. It feels a little flabby and overlong.

Jason Statham was at his best in this movie! Lot's of action and some laughs. I rather see JLo as an actress than a singer, she was great!

Welp love me some Jason Statham! But I found myself sorta bored with the story. But It was worth seeing! In short there are rules to everything that you must follow. If you dont follow them then you invite Chaos into your life. Nobody like Chaos. So moral of the story is Always burn the correct Hay bail!
P.S.Oh and if you want to see J-lo's ****... welp there is a GENEROUS booty shot. So there ya go fellas a PRIME reason to fork over the 10 bucks!
