Parker (2013): Jennifer Lopez, Jason Statham and a $50 Million Heist


     Directed by Taylor Hackford, based on the novel "Flashfire" by Donald Westlake, Parker (2013) combines elements from the Neo-Noir and Heist genres. When a professional thief is double-crossed and left for dead by his cohorts after a heist, he follows them to Palm Beach, Florida… and with the help of an indebted and corrupt real estate agent, he exacts his bloody revenge after their next big score at a $50,000,000 diamond estate auction. Of particular note is the interesting way in which the second robbery is enacted, with the thieves setting a blaze, then posing as firefighters to evacuate the area and steal the jewels. The violence can be extremely graphic at times, though. Jason Statham is great in the title role. Jennifer Lopez is beautiful in her part. The supporting cast is good as well, including Michael Chiklis and Nick Nolte.
