The Silver Bullet ~ Parker

parker

Synopsis: A thief with a unique code of professional ethics is double-crossed by his crew and left for dead. Assuming a new disguise and forming an unlikely alliance with a woman on the inside, he looks to hijack the score of the crew’s latest heist

Release Date:  January 25, 2013

Thoughts: The synopsis reads like any number of similar double crossed man on the run films and pretty much every Jason Statham film released.  What I think may just set this one apart is director Taylor Hackford at the helm and smart screenwriter John McLaughlin (Black Swan, Hitchcock) adapting Donald Westlake’s pulpy novel.  The presence of Lopez instantly puts Out of Sight into my brain so I’m going to have to put that excellent movie aside if I’m going to enjoy Parker in the slightest.  I’m thinking this will be a nice diversion and nothing more…but am hoping it delivers like I think it might.
