    This Parker spits in our collective eye. Don't blame us for spitting back. show more

    The essence of this grindingly violent movie can be summed up by what Parker says of his handgun to a terrified clerk at a check-cashing service: "It's small, but it hurts." show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Taylor Hackford directs crisply, unpretentiously. Patti LuPone goes Latina, playing Lopez's soap opera-addicted mom, and Bobby Cannavale is a Palm Beach cop with an eye for Leslie. The action is fast and furious. show more

    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. show more

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

    Even the people who griped about Tom Cruise being cast as the towering Jack Reacher will have to admit Statham fits nicely in Parker's shoes. show more

    The action scenes are crisply directed, brutal, and invigorating. show more

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    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. show more

    Parker is watchable chiefly for Statham, who exudes effortless cool and excels in hand-to-hand combat, as well as demonstrating his skill at wielding some very unlikely weapons. show more

    Not much action considering it was a Jason Statham movie. The movie was slow to develop and considering it was a revenge movie it really didn\'t satisfy. Overall it was okay but I wouldn\'t make a point of going to see it.
