Parker Trailer Online
Stathaaam! Chiklis! Lopez! Crime!

Finally! After years of simply having to get the Rolls and help Lady Penelope out of tough situations with his street-smart cockney thief talents, Thunderbirds chauffeur Parker is getting the movie portrayal he deserves. With Jason Statham playing him. And Jennifer Lopez as Lady P... Hang, on. No, this actually appears to be the trailer for The Stath’s new crime thriller, Parker. Check it out above.

Yes, there are no rockets or stammering scientists to be found here. It’s pure Statham action time, as he plays the titular thief, a man who lives by a strict code: never steal from anyone that can’t afford it, and never hurt anyone that doesn’t deserve it.

But the events of his latest job, carried out with Melander’s (Michael Chiklis) gang, cause him to add one more rule – if you get double-crossed and left for dead, deliver bloody revenge. So the tough guy gets tougher, heads to Florida’s Palm Beach and connects with an unlikely partner in Leslie (Lopez), an insider short on cash but big on smarts, ambition and looks. Can they take everyone down? It’s Stathaaaaam. What do you think?

With Taylor Hackford directing, Parker is set to punch in on January 25.

Looks decent
It is no Point Blank & the stath is no Lee marvin, but it looks like a fun revenge crime flick. More

I love The Stath's movies, but he does have the knack of going from actual smart/cool/interesting movies to dumbly written that makes very little sense. Parker seems to be one of these movies, I'll see it of course (for ol'Jase of course, and interested in what Michael Chicklis does), but I doubt I'll find it very entertaining. More

Looks fun
and a bit classier than The Stathaaaam's usual oeuvre. More
