Movie Review: Parker

parkerWe went out today to view Parker with Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez in the Reel Cinemas at the Dubai Mall.

The movie is quite long with 2 hours, but delivers good action. It is funny that Jason Statham always plays characters which are slight below the law but is sold to the viewers as a hero because he has principles.

For the ones hoping on a love story in this movie, forget it. Like usual in Statham movies its about getting the job done.

Nevertheless the movie is cool and J-LO is a real eye catcher for the male viewers while Staham is probably for the female.

Anyways Parker has a good revenge/crime story its about a professional thief who lives by a simple code, don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. After a successful heist our man is left for dead by his partners. The movie has good action throughout. lots of hand to hand combat, and violent ones at that. It also has better than usual cast and director for a Statham action movie (Good villains + hot leading lady).

Resume: Go out and watch it.
