This movie was not that good. It started out strong, I was really in to it for the first 30 to 40 minutes, but then it just went downhill. You would think with this being a Jason Statham movie it would have really good fight scenes, but it didn't. Don't get me wrong it had fight scenes, but they were border line stupid. Also, I'm not a hater but Jennifer Lopez was awful in this movie. I give it a 6 out of 10.

Surprising Entertaining

Really like jason in this movie. I love his accent and he's not so bad to look at either. Non stop action throughout the entire movie. I don't know why Jennifer Lopez was in it, nor a few other scenes that the movie could have done without, but overall great flick and worth seeing it in the theater. If you are a J-Lo fan, she's barely a character in this flick, but in long enough to show us her stellar curves-Dang, she looks good for her age! Go see this!

The movie was not bad, but not great either.

The beginning and middle of the film were great, but the ending stunk. Statham as usual was great. His fighting skills are amazing. J-Lo was annoying. I could not stand her character. I would say wait for cable. Not worth the price of admission.

I rate this an A-. Typical Jason S. movie but i like him. He even seems a little more vunerable in this than in the past. J LO suprises with a decent performance and she looks great. Together they work. So if you want some good action and a little eye candy ....Go.

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.
