Storyline Heading
Parker 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 Palm Beach, 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, 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.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action - Like nearly all Jason Statham starring vehicles, this is a violent action film, but one with a stronger story and less reliance on big, choreographed martial arts scenes. Jennifer Lopez's role is fairly small until about a third of the way in, and Nick Nolte's screen time is limited. Constant language and bloody violence make this not one for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

NY Post Full Review
Average 'Parker' is watchable chiefly for Statham, who exudes effortless cool and excels in hand-to-hand combat, as well as demonstrating his skill at wielding some very unlikely weapons.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 41 moviegoers:
TEENS:The lone male loved it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Both the males and females all loved "Parker."
ADULTS: Not the greatest reviews from either the males or females. Only about a quarter of the males loved it. Quite a few more enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, nearly half only rated it as a good/average movie, which is a bit low, especially considering the star power in this movie. The female reviews are somewhat better but there were still quite a few who weren't real impressed.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The most daring, meticulous and ruthless thief in the business, Parker (Jason Statham) is an expert at planning and executing seemingly impossible heists. All he requires from his crew is absolute loyalty -- and strict adherence to the plan. But when his latest robbery turns deadly because of a crew member's carelessness, Parker declines to join crime boss Melander (Michael Chiklis) and his gang for their next big job. Not willing to take no for an answer, the thieves turn on Parker, leaving him for dead by the side of a deserted road.

Surviving the attack and bent on vengeance against the men who betrayed him, Parker traces the gang to glitzy Palm Beach. Posing as a wealthy Texan looking to buy a home, he meets Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a amateur realtor, struggling to get by, with an encyclopedic knowledge of the island. With her help, he uncovers the gang's plan to make off with more than $50 million dollars worth of jewels and sets up a plan to hijack their score and exact his revenge.

But Parker has angered the gang's allies in Chicago, making him the target of a team of mob hit men. Now, in order to get even, he'll first have to survive.
