Heist movie predictable but fun

(Continued)

Directed by Taylor Hackford (“Ray”), Parker isn’t as intricate as most heist films, but it does have a good energy, and the fight scenes aren’t bad. Still, won’t someone offer Jason Statham something better?

Rental recommendation: Lopez was considerably more effective paired with George Clooney in “Out of Sight” Grade: B+
