    The movie is neatly directed by Taylor Hackford, who keeps it moving quickly without descending into a blur of cut-cut-cut edits.

    The picture is far from great, but it's a serviceable B-movie with some A-list talent on a slumming expedition.

    The tight-lipped, give-no-quarter Statham is impeccable as the pitiless yet honourable Parker (though fans of the books will no doubt quibble, especially over the British accent). On the other hand, Lopez, that pleasant sex pot, hasn't a hope of producing the tragic desperation of her down-on-her-luck character.

    If you go in knowing what you're getting, you should come out relatively satisfied. Our hero vigorously beats up a parade of bad guys. Lots of bullets fly. There are a couple of decently plotted thefts. And to tell the truth, Statham's Southern accent is nearly worth the price of admission itself.

    The best things about Parker are the two lead actors. Although working with material that is lackluster even by his standards, Statham manages to demonstrate a commanding screen presence that cannot be dismissed.

    The smidgen of dramatic color offered by Jennifer Lopez, as a divorced real-estate broker drawn into Parker's payback scheme, is offset by her character's shocking naïveté, shedding her clothes on command (as if she still couldn't hide a wire somewhere) and falling unconvincingly for Statham's featureless cipher.

I went in expecting a disaster but i was pleasantly surprised! Statham was great as usual with a nice twist at his basic action hero character, Lopez was very good and in a role very fresh and different for her (i mean come, JLo sad and desperate getting the cold shoulder by Jason?! LOL) and Hackford is also great! Fun and cool for its genre! :) Expand

It doesn't have enough action to compete with other Jason Statham movies, its far too long and most of the performances are lame. Jennifer Lopez really doesn't need to be there because she's not much of a partner, she has no knowledge of the situation she's in and she isn't Parker's love interest either. I was happy to see Michael Chiklis as the villain but he really doesn't get any screen time, anyone could have been the villain in this movie. There are so many better Jason Statham movies than Parker. Expand

    "Parker" is a very poorly written movie with an uninteresting plot whose only saving grace are the action sequences. The first half was"Parker" is a very poorly written movie with an uninteresting plot whose only saving grace are the action sequences. The first half was alright, but as soon as the subplot involving Jennifer Lopez, whose character is meant to provide comedic relief, begins about 1 hour in it takes a huge turn for the worse. Statham is a decent actor who has done much better movies and without him this would be a total flop. Lopez on the other hand was simply terrible, though not all of it was her fault because even the concept of her character was ridiculously stupid. Overall it is far too long for the script potential, Lopez's character was an awful addition, and the fact that the movie tries to be funny and serious at the same time all combine to make for a pretty bad experience. So in the end, a low brow flick that I would not recommend at all. Expand
