Merely laughable

OUT NOW! Statham lands laughs in PARKER, but not the right kind.

Crook-with-a-code Parker (Statham) must track down the crew who stabbed him in the back and left him for dead following a successful heist. His journey takes him to Palm Springs, where he enlists the help of a real estate agent (Lopez) to thwart the gang’s plans. The promise of Hackford (an Oscar-nominated director) and the often-enjoyable Statham working together dissolves soon after the opening fairground heist, with Statham’s array of disguises and accents drawing all the wrong kind of laughs.

Parker | Directed by Taylor Hackford (USA 2013) with Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Chiklis. Starts February 7
