Becky and I went to see the new movie Parker at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO this week. The Fandango website at Parker describes the movie as follows…
“Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead. Determined to make sure they regret it, Parker tracks them to Palm Beach, playground of the rich and famous, where the crew is planning their biggest heist ever. Donning the disguise of a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a savvy insider, who’s short on cash, but big on looks, smarts and ambition. Together, they devise a plan to hijack the score, take everyone down and get away clean...”
The Review: Parker is a new flick starring Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez that reminded me quite a bit of that movie Payback that Mel Gibson did back in 1999. Mel’s character was called Porter and he was left for dead after being whacked by his partner and and Jason’s character is left for dead as well by his criminal buddies and his name is Parker. They both had a woman involved and both characters were about having their own rules when it came to their criminal activity.
It turns out that the writer behind this movie also did Payback, which is why I thought it was so much like that movie. The movie is action packed and Jason is a butt kicker in this film for sure. The movie has plenty of twists and turns. It’s not a great movie, but it is a really fun as an action film. Parker is pretty well done for the most part, since the character actually takes a beating and doesn’t have super hero qualities. If you like action movies, you should like this one. Jennifer Lopez character was done well too.
Becky and I both liked it and thought it was fun to watch. Our friend Mark went with us and he liked it too. It is rated R and if you are in the mood for an action movie, this is a fun flick for the money.
