Parker

To get away clean, you have to play dirty.


Parker
This is a Jason Statham film. That's all you really need to know. The plotline has his character take part in a robbery before his partners turn on him and leave him for dead. But Jason is tough and survives, then heads to Florida to track them down and exact revenge. Along the way he meets a beautiful woman who tags along for the ride. The reviewers were not particularly impressed.

CommentsThis film has complex and mature themes of crime, corruption, fraud, danger, revenge and fear. Children under the age of 16 years may find the portrayal of such themes confusing, distressing and/or upsetting. The language use is strong and frequent and includes words such as 'Fnck', 'son-of-a-b!tch' and 'motherfncker'. There is also mild to moderate blasphemy such as 'Holy Sh!t', 'Jesus Christ' and 'Sweet Jesus'. The blasphemy does not amount to prejudice but may offend young and sensitive viewers. The violence in this film is strong and frequent and includes bloody detail and close-ups of wounds. Scenes include shootings, stabbings, multiple killings and physical beatings and may harm viewers under 16 years. The suspense is also strong and frequent made so by loud sound effects, dark and eerie lighting and a suspense-filled sound track. Mild imitable acts and mild to moderate criminal techniques includes scenes of planned and organised robberies where the criminals are disguised as non-threatening characters such as clowns and priests. The plans of their robberies are depicted and therefore may threaten and negatively influence a child who may not understand the complexity of the scenes. This film has an overall strong impact and is not at all suitable for younge children and viewers under 16 years of age.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconParker is an anti-hero but, like all effectively portrayed anti-heroes, we have no trouble rooting for his revenge to play out in a satisfying manner. Which, of course, it does.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconA formula action movie that hits its formula marks as if no one expected more. I do expect more. So do Westlake fans. This Parker spits in our collective eye. Don't blame us for spitting back.
