It all just fizzles out.

March 7, 2013
It's an overlong, arduous caper, drawn from the work of thriller writer Donald E. Westlake much as a patient's tooth might be extracted with much banter and minimal anaesthesia.

Things get off to a flying start, but you just know your luck isn't going to hold.

Hackford does supply some genuinely hard-boiled thrills, including the briskly efficient opening heist and a bruising hotel-room tussle for Parker and a would-be assassin. But when Lopez wiggles and pouts her way into the caper, the film goes soft.

Under Taylor Hackford's efficient direction, Parker delivers on all counts.

There's a black hole of chemistry between Statham and Lopez.

Overall, it gets by, but bets are hedged when single-minded efficiency and ice in the veins would have been enough.

A moderately entertaining, no-frills crime caper shot through with enthusiasm by its talented cast.

It does sag in the middle but its witty enough to make realise how charmless the latest Die Hard film is.

March 3, 2013
Like Parker's robberies, it isn't entirely successful, but Statham and Lopez make enticingly mismatched partners in crime.

"Parker" quickly settles into a lurching routine of explosive, predictable set pieces.

February 7, 2013
not masterpiece, but it's fun, it's clever, and it manages several surprises as Statham's cinematic persona becomes a man of brains as well as muscle

Parker wants to be more than a standard action film, and those efforts, ironically, are what sabotaged any chance the film had to be good as a pure action film.

February 5, 2013
A middling action movie, neither great nor terrible...efficient but completely unexceptional.
Full Review | Original Score: C

... a stylish but predictable cat-and-mouse potboiler about brutal dishonor among thieves.

He might have lost his edge, but Parker hasn't mellowed in his old age. A sunny, silly, violent revenger that puts Statham in good company.

February 4, 2013
A cool, violent, efficient adaptation of the taciturn anti-hero (the creation of Donald E. Westlake, writing as Richard Stark), who's out to restore order in a bloody world in his own bloody way.
February 3, 2013
It's above-average because of its fascinating cast. 'Parker' will come as no surprise to fans of Jason Statham's other R-rated actioners. It's the assemblage of this ensemble piece that's a pleasant surprise.

Twenty years later, it turns out that Statham may be the last real action hero.
