Story


Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez team up to get their cut in the crime thriller, PARKER, based on the series of bestselling novels by Donald E. Westlake.

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 PalmBeach, 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.

PARKER is directed by Academy Award nominee Taylor Hackford ("Ray") and also stars Michael Chiklis, Wendell Pierce (HBO's "The Wire") and Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Taylor Hackford directs crisply, unpretentiously..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..Parker just gets more violent and more predictable, as the body count rises and the attention wanes..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
