PARKER Trailer Hits, Complete With Statham in a Coyboy

Jason Gorber, Featured Critic
Here's the first real look at Taylor Hackford's Parker. Much will no doubt be made about Statham (aka the "other Jason") and his mildly outrageous drawl. Still, with a cast that includes Chiklis, J-Lo, Nolte and even the extraordinary Wendel Pierce (here seen driving a car, shifting his eyes side-to-side).

I'm going to go out on a limb and think this might well be an excellent little action piece, despite the clunky looking trailer.

Parker is scheduled for release on January 24, 2013

    Don't miss Darwyn Cooke's adaptations of Parker novels.

    This isn't Parker, this is Statham's usual action crud. The Donald Westlake (Richard Stark) novels are intelligent cult crime gems that deserve much, much better than this. If Westlake were alive today, he'd do everything in his power to prevent this atrocity from happening, he was notoriously protective over his work.

    And Jesus, the guy didn't even attempt an American accent...
