There's no honor among thieves - except for Jason Statham's title character, that is - in this well-executed melodrama based on novels by veteran crime writer Donald Westlake, who used the alias Richard Stark for them.

Parker is a member of a robbery team double-crossed by his cohorts, who are then pursued and targeted by him as they plan their next heist in Florida. Jennifer Lopez and Michael Chiklis ("Vegas") also are in director Taylor Hackford's ("Ray") cast. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Hackford. *** (R: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
