* {{Badass}}: The one thing linking every one of his characters. They can always kick ass.

** Can also count as HeReallyCanAct when he plays beleaguered conmen or thieves instead of action roles, such as ''Film/LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels'', ''Film/Snatch'', and ''Film/TheBankJob''.

His perennial character is that of a [[BaldOfAwesome bald]] {{antihero}} with solid asskicking abilities and a very defined style. A good rule of thumb when considering Jason Statham movies for viewing: if the film in question cannot be alternatively titled ''Jason Statham [[BadassDriver Drives A Car]] And [[OneManArmy Kills People]] While [[PerpetualFrowner Scowling A Lot]]'', it most likely isn't that good.

A resident of the UK, expert kickboxer, and former member of the British high diving team, Statham is one of the few remaining straight-up action stars in Hollywood. He first drew attention for his roles in the films of GuyRitchie (especially ''LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels''), but became a bona fide star with ''Film/TheTransporter'' and ''Film/{{Crank}}'' films; he is also a frequent collaborator with Jet Li and has also done voice-overs for ''[[VideoGame/RedFaction Red Faction II]]'' and the original ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty''.

* ImprovisedWeapon: Not to the level of Creator/JackieChan, of course, but he still usually uses anything lying around for a weapon. The hose fight scene in ''Transporter 2'' is a shining example.

** PlayingWithCharacterType: In a subversion of his usual roles as steely-eyed, razor-sharp badasses, in ''Film/{{Spy}}'', he plays Rick Ford, a steely-eyed, razor-sharp CloudCuckoolander suffering from SmallNameBigEgo. When he's not recounting ludicrous, probably-made-up tales of his previous exploits ("I drove a car off a freeway on top of a train while it was on fire. Not the car; ''I'' was on fire."), his action-hero attitude is constantly screwing up attempts to be a stealthy spy.
