Randomly in the future you'll come upon it late one night on Starz, watch twenty minutes or so, then change the channel.

A little more energy behind the camera and a different leading lady and Parker could have been something great. As it stands it's a treat for Statham fans only.

As a tasty but un-nourishing rehash, it's not bad.

The movie seems to suffer from a misguided attempt to chase the female demo.

The action flick doesn't do much to wow you, but keeps things exciting.

Calling "Parker" run-of-the-mill insults the pleasures of the potboilers it's trying to emulate. It feels like the product of misfits who broke into a mill shuttered on the edge of town and fired up the machines without understanding how they work.

Parker is a functional enough actioner but lacks pizzazz.

Hackford brings a sense of style and sure-handedness to the proceedings that is uncommon for films of this genre.

Parker is well executed, ultimately entertaining and totally consumable but hardly groundbreaking as action thrillers go.

Even adding Jennifer Lopez to the mix in time for her to strip and show off her infamous rear doesn't add much in the way of silver screen sizzle.

Statham puts the fun back into discriminate, pornographic violence.

Birmingham Post
March 13, 2013
If Statham harbours ambitions of making a career-defining action thriller, Parker has to be seen as another opportunity lost.

March 9, 2013 see [Lopez] wasted here, forced to behave girlishly and neurotically and eventually become a hostage, is insulting.

We like you, Jason. You're perfectly acceptable in near-silent, pseudo-Asian action nonsense. But you, sir, are no Lee Marvin.

Hackford approaches his task as if he's seen one of the duffer Elmore Leonard movie adaptations of recent years, or at least had one described to him.

Radio Times
March 8, 2013
The film has some bone-crunchingly good action sequences, one decent one-liner and it's all daftly watchable, but one suspects that this is more of a career high point for Statham than for Hackford.

Works well enough to prove [Statham] has more than physically demanding stunts in him.

Far better made than it has any right to be, this cheesy 70s-style thriller is given a thoroughly engaging kick by veteran filmmaker Hackford working outside his usual dramatic genre.

Slick, refined and so polished you can damn near make out your reflection on Statham's forehead.

A mediocre, poorly paced thriller ...
