Consensus: Jason Statham is game as usual, but Parker is a thoroughly generic and convoluted heist movie.

Time Out

Overall, it gets by, but bets are hedged when single-minded efficiency and ice in the veins would have been enough.

Poster quote: "Parker," a film that's a little better than you'd expect!

Poor J-Lo: there was a time when she co-starred with George Clooney, but 15 years on from Out Of Sight she's just a third wheel in this uninspired vengeance caper wherein The Stath is shafted by the Mob and vows payback.

New Yorker

A cool, violent, efficient adaptation of the taciturn anti-hero (the creation of Donald E. Westlake, writing as Richard Stark), who's out to restore order in a bloody world in his own bloody way.

Tom Russo
Boston Globe

Parker's vengeance isn't thrilling, there's a pointlessly developed non-love triangle, even the glam settings look cheap, and the tough-guy exchanges are inexplicably flat.

Randomly in the future you'll come upon it late one night on Starz, watch twenty minutes or so, then change the channel.

For an old-fashioned crime thriller, you need real pros. Mr. Statham is to acting what Taco Bell is to nutrition.

Hollywood hasn't butchered Parker-which is to say that it has let him remain a butcher.

A little more energy behind the camera and a different leading lady and Parker could have been something great. As it stands it's a treat for Statham fans only.

Parker is one of those films that look great on paper, but when it was put to celluloid, it simply didn't deliver. What we have here is a film that lacks… More
