16 Hollywood Stars & Their Supercars

April 25th, 2014 3:00pm EDT
16 Hollywood Stars & Their Supercars
Honda. Ford. Chevy. These are all household names. We see them every day driving to work, or while going to grab a cup of coffee on the corner, or from our office window. They don't do anything special to really grab your attention - they just exist to get us from point A to point B. And for most of us, that's just fine.

But for those who can afford it, vehicles offer something else - status. And those vehicles are fast and loud, and they grab -no- command attention wherever they go. Whether it's through sleek, formula 1-like styling, or monstrous engines that roar like lions and move like...

Jason Statham Calls For An Oscar For Stuntmen

November 22nd, 2013 12:54pm EST
Jason Statham
British actor Jason Statham has called on Academy Awards bosses to create a new category honoring stunt performers.

The Hollywood tough guy, famous for his role in high-octane action films The Transporter and The Expendables, believes the highly-trained men and women behind some of film's most impressive moments should be recognized at Hollywood's biggest prize-giving.

The 46 year old star tells Vanity Fair magazine, "I think it is an overlooked category, (considering) how much responsibility these coordinators have for some of the greatest entertainment in action movies.

Can a newbie director take a performer known for a certain kind of performance and give them a new acting angle?  If you’re the talented scribe behind such masterworks as "Dirty Pretty Things" and "Eastern Promises" like famed writer Steven Knight is it’s not only possible, but probable.  The writer makes his directorial debut with the impressive morality tale "Redemption" (out now from Lionsgate Home Entertainment) and playing his sullen and broken lead man is – surprise, surprise - none other than action man Jason Statham.  The result is not only a remarkable film, but Statham at his emot...

Review: 'Parker' A Pissed Off Thief Out For Vengeance (Video)

January 25th, 2013 2:02pm EST
Parker
Parker (Jason Statham) is a thief and one of the best around.  But he's not just a thief; he's a thief with a code. Do what you say… If you don't… there will be consequences.

Parker demands absolute loyalty and strict adherence to the plan from his crew.  Unfortunately that's not what he gets from fellow thieves, Melander (Michael Chiklis), Carlson (Wendell Pierce) and Ross (Clifton Collins, Jr.).

'Parker' directed by Academy Award nominee Taylor Hackford ('Ray'), starts out with a daring robbery at the Ohio State Fair that doesn't go so well.  Thanks to the recklessness of one of his men...

Don't Expect 'Safe' Star Jason Statham To Play Any Serious Roles

April 27th, 2012 4:42pm EDT
Jason Statham
You don't want to mess with the characters Jason Statham plays in many of his films. He was an ex special ops agent in "Killer Elite," a mercenary in "The Expendables" and an outlaw with impressive fighting skills in "The Transporter."

Don't ever expect him to do Shakespeare.

The British actor recently told the BBC, "I don't see myself as a great character actor that will play a lawyer and then something bizarrely different. That's not what my strength is."

We know what his strength is - kicking ass and taking names. He stars in the new film "Safe," hitting theaters today. He plays a su...

Movie Review: 'Safe' (Video)

First off, I must say that there are some actors that I just enjoy watching ­- doesn't really matter all that much what they do up on the silver screen, I just like them - and Jason Statham is one of them.

Is he a great actor? That's yet to be determined, but he's definitely an entertaining one.

In his new film 'Safe' written and directed by Boaz Yakin ('Remember the Titans') Statham is at the top of his game.

He plays Luke Wright, an ex super cop, ex cage fighter, who's at the lowest point in his life. Luke's wife has been murdered by the Russian mob and he is one step away from jumping...

Review: 'Killer Elite' An Action Thriller Weighed-Down By Too Much Exposition

September 22nd, 2011 7:00pm EDT
Killer Elite
On the surface "Killer Elite" seems to have all the right cinema stuff; a stellar cast, a story based on engaging real-life events and a cool overall action tone. So what went wrong? Problem is that in adapting the Sir Ranulph Fiennes 1991 novel The Feather Man somebody forgot to tell screenwriter Matt Sherring that "Killer Elite" was actually going to be a motion picture.

Leading action man Jason Statham plays a hitman who decides to get out of the business, but when his partner (Robert De Niro) is kidnapped and held for job ransom, he finds himself smack dab in the middle of the action...
