Parker is a 2013 action-thriller film directed by Taylor Hackford and starring Jason Statham as the titular character, Parker. The film is based on the novel Flashfire by Donald E. Westlake, and it follows Parker, a professional thief, as he seeks revenge against a group of criminals who double-crossed him during a job. The movie opens with Parker and his team robbing the Ohio State Fair. The heist is successful, but Parker's partners betray him and leave him for dead. Parker survives the attack and vows to get revenge on his former accomplices.

Parker travels to Palm Beach, Florida, where he tracks down one of his former partners, Melander (Michael Chiklis). With the help of a local real estate agent, Leslie Rodgers (Jennifer Lopez), Parker infiltrates Melander's operation and plans his revenge.

As Parker navigates the dangerous world of organized crime, he must also deal with Leslie, who complicates his plans with her own motivations and desires. Parker's moral code clashes with Leslie's, and he must decide whether to trust her or take matters into his own hands.

The film's action sequences are intense, featuring Statham's signature brand of hand-to-hand combat and car chases. The film's plot is suspenseful, with twists and turns that keep the audience guessing until the very end.

Throughout the film, Statham's performance as Parker is stoic and determined, but he also brings depth to the character's emotional journey. Lopez's performance as Leslie is a standout, providing both comic relief and dramatic tension.

Chiklis, as well as the supporting cast, deliver strong performances that add to the film's overall effectiveness. The filmmakers also make great use of the Florida setting, incorporating the state's lush landscapes and glamorous lifestyle into the film's aesthetic.

Overall, Parker is a thrilling and entertaining action film that showcases Statham's talent as an action star and Hackford's skill as a director. Fans of the genre and Statham's previous work will enjoy this film, as will anyone looking for a fun popcorn flick with a bit of substance.
