I’m always at a loss for what to say about a trailer for a Jason Statham movie, because with the exception of a select few titles most of them are pretty interchangeable, and let’s face it, we’re all just really there to see one thing: Watch a Cockney bloke put serious boot to arse.
So I’m not even going to bore you any further with these pesky words, as they just getting in the way of all the Stathdamage. And yes, I totally just made that word up.
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.
Wise crack? Check. Hot chick getting undressed? Check. Somebody gets kicked in the face really hard? Check. Yep, this is definitely a Jason Statham movie. I am suprised at the lack of Michael Chiklis in this trailer though, seeing as how good he can be at being bad. Also, does Nick Nolte gargle with battery acid? Because I really can’t think of any other way to get a voice like that.
