Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on May 28, 2013

parkerParker is an adaptation of one of Richard Stark’s Parker movies starring Jason Staham. I was interested in seeing this, and only found out in the past week or two that it was out in theaters months ago and was already released on video. I like Jason Staham movies and I like the Parker stories, but combining them results in something dissatisfying. I haven’t read the book this movie was based on, but I felt like they made the Parker character a little too nice (he has a certain set of ethics, but he is mean to basically everyone) and they made the action scenes a little too over-the-top (but not so over-the-top that they were Crank levels of ridiculous fun).
