It's Jason that will bring us back everytime, he doesn't disappoint. Yes, there might be a few things that happen that are a little far fetched but overall it is entertaining. Jennifer did a good job!

I love Jason Statham movies, so it should mean something that 3 times during the movie I seriously considered walking out. This is one of the most boring action movies I've ever seen. There's only a couple action sequences during the entire movie. Let's face it, you see a JS movie to see nonstop, kick-***action. It's definitely not one of those. PASS. Honestly, it's not even worth renting.

January-February 2013 shows promise of being Nirvana for fans of action movies. We have new movies by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Mark Wahlberg and a new "Die Hard" picture to look forward to. "Parker" sets the bar pretty high in terms of plot, dialogue and casting. I love a good revenge movie and this movie evokes memories of Lee Marvin's "Point Blank" and Mel Gibson's "Payback". Jason Statham plays it straight and brutal as the "good" criminal (he only steals from those who can afford it and doesn't hurt anyone who doesn't try to hurt him) who seeks to avenge himself against his former partners who double crossed him. Mr. Statham has become a reliable action star who consistently satisfies his audience. And like Bruce Willis, his characters get tired, hurt and bloody when shot, stabbed or otherwise attacked by his opponents. Jennifer Lopez does a good job in a supporting role that complements Statham's character. Her scenes with her mother are priceless.

Actually save your money.....it's okay but I can't watch Jennifer Lopez as an actress or singer or anything but overrated. Seen better acting from those rice crispies three. That IS the worst Jason Statham movies I have ever seen and I love me some Jason. Don't waste your time. Wait unil one of your friends to netfix it so you can say you didn't spend a dime on it.

This is a crime drama/action movie that is based on a series of books about a character named Parker [they are written by Richard Stark and I think he did about 20] . There have been two other movies based on his books [Lee Marvin in 'Point Blank' & Mel Gibson in 'Payback'] . Jason plays Parker , a thief with his own code of ethics [he only steals from people that can afford it , he never kills anyone unless they deserve it , he always does what he says he is going to do and he expects other people to treat him the same way] . Nick plays the man that connects Jason to his job prospects and his latest is a state fair heist with Michael and his gang , along for help . Michael double-crosses Jason and leaves him for dead [he should have made sure he was dead] and Jason just wants to set things right . Jennifer plays a real estate agent that helps Jason in his plans . It has the usual good fight scenes that you can expect in a Jason Statham movie .
