Director Taylor Hackford upcoming Parker stars the steely English Jason Statham opposite a seductive Jennifer Lopez, expect sparks to fly.
In the crime thriller Statham plays Parker, a kind of modern Robin Hood who lives by a code: “I don’t steal from people who can’t afford it, and I don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it.” But Robin Hood days are dead and men of honor no longer exist among thieves. After turning down a jewelry robbery proposed by a merciless thug (Michael Chiklis), he’s shot and left for dead. He teams up with a real-estate agent (Jennifer Lopez) and start planning his revenge.
I had to watch the trailer twice as Statham wearing a wig kept haunting me. His adopted accent, that doesn’t suit him at all was also the reason, I got distracted.
Overall it seems a movie to be waiting for and worth a watch.
Parker hits theaters January 25th, 2013.
