Parker (Jason Statham) 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 PalmBeach, 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 (Jennifer Lopez), 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.

If you know me or have been reading my blog for any real amount of time, then you already know I’ll be seeing this one on the big screen. I’m a sucker for any movie featuring Jason Statham. Though, I worry J-Lo will be the only downer. Let’s hope the rest of the cast can make it work, or carry her through.Or better yet, maybe I will be surprised and she will hold her own.
