When it comes to playing impossibly lethal flint-eyed loners, no one can match Statham. Besides, who else could pull off, when confronted with a blade-wielding assailant, a surreal one-liner like this:'You've got a knife. I've got a spoon.'
Has a little more on its mind than a simple serving of beatings. Visually striking and marked by unexpected characterizations, the movie isn't perfect, but it's unusual, acting as a career multivitamin for Statham.
Jason Statham is arguably the leading action star of his generation, but with Redemption, the feature directorial debut from talented screenwriter Steven Knight, he attempts to expand his range for the first time since The Bank Job.
Jason Statham takes a darker role than usual in a gritty London drama that never quite seems sure of itself, as writer-turned-director Knight mashes several huge social issues with a hint of action and a rather awkward romance.
It's a dark, tough and unyieldingly violent movie that disdains action movie clichés and gives Statham his most dramatically complex, challenging movie character so far, one executed with surprising compassion, even vulnerability.
