For better or worse, Jason Statham doesn’t take himself too seriously. He’s the only action star who can play a character participating in over-the-top, physics-defying antics without a smirk on his face or a tongue in his cheek. To me, that shows he’s a genuine fellow. Many critics can’t stand the man, but audiences have made him a huge international star. In his latest effort, Parker, he stars as the titular criminal anti-hero based on the beloved crime novel series by Richard Stark. The film has all the laughable and violent action shenanigans that have become synonymous with Statham, but as a whole, the film fails to the rise above the ordinary.

Director Taylor Hackford (Ray, Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n' Roll) certainly knows how to be provocative but misses an opportunity here. He is seemingly trying to make a generic genre outing on purpose. Parker is neither fresh nor groundbreaking.

Lo’s hip-hop leanings.  Well, let’s see if we can make some sense out of what you've given us this time around...
