What’s it about? Jason Statham is Parker, a professional thief who justifies his line of work with an ethical code, who goes on a revenge spree with a little help from an unlikely partner (played by Jennifer Lopez) after his accomplices stab him in the back. Unfortunately, the acting falls flat.

“Love Sick Love”
What’s it about?
Man meets woman. Man dates woman. Woman kidnaps man and tortures him in an isolated house with her disturbed family – creepy kids included. “Love Sick Love” reaches for both laughs and cringes, but ends up just confusing.

“Struck By Lightning”
What’s it about? A coming-of-age story with a healthy dose of cynicism, high school senior and aspiring writer Carson Phillips (Chris Colfer) blackmails his fellow students into helping him launch a literary magazine, with some help and comedic relief from Rebel Wilson.
In or Out: IN.

“Stand Up Guys”
What’s it about? When a former mobster gets out of jail after serving twenty-eight years for refusing to rat out his associates, he and his former mobster pals (played by Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin) try to make up for lost time in amusing ways. For all of these actors’ chops and potential, the material just doesn’t hold up.
In or Out: OUT.
