An excellent down to Earth thriller! (by josephanthonytaylor)
With out giving much away, I have to really praise this movie. The film accomplishes creating a down to Earth thriller with the dramatic ups and downs of a well written story.In today's movie world, most movies create thrill by just using special effects that show cars being blown away, chases, and gun battles. Special effects are fine and thrilling, but a movie created by computer effects is devoid of real creativity.In Parker however, the thrills come from the characters' interactions and situations. Now, you really need imagination and creativity in order to accomplish such level <more>
of reality.The film presents the two main characters in a very realistic way. Furthermore, the female lead played by Jennifer Lopez, is played to perfection.It is very sad to observe that this film did not get proper distribution here in New York City. Originally, the movie was going to be shown at several AMC Theaters including the Lincoln Square 13. While it did play in several AMC Houses, it never played the Lincoln Square 13. The Lincoln Square 13 seems to be the AMC Flagship here in NYC. In my opinion, the fact that this movie did not played in that house hurt the movie at the box office.All-in-all, I hope there is a sequel to Parker with the same actors playing the lead roles. I also will like to see the sequel promoted and distributed more efficiently.
This is a good good movie, kudos to Lopez, Stratham. This is a very underrated flick, I hope Parker has more to come. Good movie!!!! I have to admit, Lopez is a better actress than she is given scores for. And Stratham, well, it's Jason. I love this as well as Killshot, another very good flick. Enjoy! I don't understand why I need ten lines of omission to satisfy but I'll try. Good movies, enjoy it, Lopez is a very good actor. What more do you want? This is nuts, OK, ten lines of text, let me see....um, a good movie, I have no clue as to this ten line text thing but that's me <more>
simply it's a wonderful movie .. one of the best movies for Jason : Parker is a thief who has an unusual code. He doesn't steal from the poor and hurt innocent people. He is asked to join 4 other guys one of whom is related to a known mobster. They pull off the job flawlessly and Parker wants to part ways with them. But because he refused to join them for another job they try to kill him. They dispose of his body but someone finds him and he is still alive and takes him to the hospital. After recovering he sets out to get back at the ones who tried to kill him, another one of his <more>
codes. He learns where they are and poses as a wealthy Texan looking to buy a house. So he hires a Realtor, Leslie Rogers to show him around. He is actually trying to find out where they're holed up. And when he finds it, he sets out on his plan to get them. But when they learn he is alive, they contact the mobster to take care of him. So he sends a killer to take care of him.
Critics will hate it, but it is better than most (by readwin)
It is an Action pic, so good action, fun one-liners, and you are pulling for the good bad guys instead of the bad bad guys all the way.I've wasted so many hours watching movies that cost so much more to make and came with gushing reviews and were garbage, so when this one turned out to be unassuming, likable and fun, I was happily surprised.Also, silky and sexy performance from Emma Booth, and Lopez is fantastic in her role too. Statham does his thing, but it is the actors around him that have to give what he does credibility.One of those films that when you think back on it, might not be <more>
A Nice Easy Jason Statham/Jennifer Lopez Movie-Reasonable Storyline-Professional Acting (by fredgfinklemeyer)
12/31/2018 A well rounded movie with a storyline that holds the viewer, played out in a realistic way by Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez. I really enjoyed watching this movie all-over- again, this second time. Not alot of action, but still one of their best. Bon Appetit
Parker Review (by Magow-Intermean)
Shot and left for dead after a daring heist, Parker Statham tracks his fellow thieves to Florida's wealthy Palm Beach, where he assumes a disguise and plots to steal the haul from their latest robbery with the help of a local estate agent Lopez . Jason Statham is a reliably unreliable action star, shooting three misfires Death Race, Killer Elite for every bullseye Snatch, Safe . Having succeeded Charles Bronson in a recent remake of The Mechanic, Statham now takes on the role of Richard Stark's aka blacklisted writer Donald E. Westlake eponymous master thief, previously played <more>
by Lee Marvin Point Blank , Robert Duvall The Outfit and, most recently, Mel Gibson Payback . This 21st-century take on the character, overseen by journeyman director Taylor Hackford aka Mr. Helen Mirren , fits Statham like a jewel thief's glove; after seeing him in action, it's almost impossible to read a Parker novel without hearing The Stath's inimitable Cockney rasp. Characterised more by actions than words, Parker's hardness is established by the fact that even his girlfriend calls him by his surname - and that, at one point, he pushes his hand onto a knife to stop it being stuck in his eye.The film opens with a daring daylight robbery at the Ohio State Fair, followed by a cheeky reprise of the plot of The Hunter the basis for Point Blank/Payback , with Parker double-crossed and left for dead again . From here, the script largely follows the plotting of the source text the 19th Parker novel, published in 2000 , fleshing out the supporting characters, notably Jennifer Lopez's loopy estate agent. With her arrival, 30 minutes in, Parker takes a surprise left turn into caper territory - although the film's violent tendencies it will go down a storm with the NRA flare up periodically to remind us we're not watching The Thomas Crown Affair. Lopez, who hasn't made a good movie since Out Of Sight, is an inspired foil for Statham, her character's klutzy nature nicely juxtaposed with Parker's cool reticence, and it's rare to find a fully fleshed-out female character in an action thriller. Hackford's reach may exceed his grasp, but this is a skilful execution of a minor Parker novel.Fifty years after he first appeared, Donald E. Westlake's antihero may have found his perfect avatar. Like Parker's robberies, it isn't entirely successful, but Statham and Lopez make enticingly mismatched partners in crime.
A 'must see' for Jason Statham fans... (by bmennen)
Well, SURE, there are places where you must suspend disbelief it's not THAT easy to steal a car, is it? , and SURE there are plot holes, and SURE there are times when you say to yourself "How did he know to go there?" BUT...this is one enjoyable movie!The acting, the action scenes, and the eye candy Statham for you XXs, and J-Lo for us XYs are all great. Oh...and a word about J-Lo. While I've never been a great fan, the poor reviews she received made me curious. Well, she was excellent...and hot as a pistol. That woman has more sex appeal than 5 centerfolds. Patti Lupone <more>
plays her mom...very well, I might add.Statham plays Parker and Parker-like characters in an intrinsically believable manner; that is, marginal characters who live on the edge of the law or beyond it think "The Transporter" series with an honorable streak. He slips into this part easily, and like his "Transporter" character, Parker seems little interested in sex. No...he has a singular purpose here as he has had in previous movies: get the job done, and no time for recreation. And once again, his singularity of purpose rings true.There is, of course, violence, but we all have seen worse; my wife only had to look away twice, and she does not enjoy these types of movies, but goes to humor me I agreed to see that dreadful "Moonrise Kingdom" after all . But she liked "Parker"--her direct quote was "It kept my interest"--and that was high praise for this kind of flick.And as Tosh might say: "And for that, we thank you."
As a fan of Donald Westlake's writing -- he did the Parker books under the pseudonym of Richard Stark -- I have long been bemused by the inability of film makers to adapt his work for the screen. Westlake wrote for the screen himself, and the Parker books are nothing but action and plot. Yes, there's character, but you figure it out from what Parker and his associates do.With this, the fourth attempt to film a Parker novel, the film makers have found a practical if surprising choice for the title role. Jason Statham is not an actor of great oratorical powers, but he is a great <more>
physical actor, and he moves constantly like an angry tiger in a cage. The choice of a caper which is set largely in Palm Beach, with its artificial, pointless display of wealth and no other reason for existence is the perfect backdrop for the ferocity of Parker in his battle with Michael Chiklis' Melander; Jennifer Lopez' clueless Leslie, who gets caught up without understanding what is going on, gives the audience a good point of view.Director Taylor Hackford is not a great director, but he is a highly competent one. Sixty years ago he would have been a major director for a studio, setting and working in the house style. Give him a story he can work with and he will hit all the notes, efficiently and effectively, and he has done so here. If the Parker of this movie is different from the Parker of the books, a bit more philosophical although it comes down, in the end, to the tigerish "Do what I tell you and I will devour you last" we need to remember that a movie is not a book. This is not Donald Westlake's Parker, nor even the Parker I see when I read the books. However, it's still a very good one and worth your attention.
Vengeance seeking Statham propels this swell slice of pulp fiction (by george.schmidt)
PARKER 2013 *** Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Chiklis, Nick Nolte, Wendell Pierce, Clifton Collins, Jr., Bobby Cannavale, Patti LuPone, Carlos Carrasco, Michah Hauptman, Emma Booth. Statham serves well as a revenge seeking crook with a code who is out for vengeance - and his slice of the pie - after a heist of double crosses leaves him for dead. High octane actioner with a swell ensemble and Lopez' best on screen role since "Out Of Sight" as the fly-in- the-ointment real estate agent that comes into Statham's plan-of-action-by default. Directed with gumption by <more>
vet Taylor Hackford and John C. McLaughlin's crackerjack adaptation of the late, great pulp fiction scribe Donald E. Weslake's novel "Flashfire" under the Richard Stark pseudonym .
