** 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.

*TranquilFury: His characters usually fall into this state when they are pissed off or have been seriously wronged, as it usually ends with him tearing apart the goons sent to kill him and/or the BigBad with nothing but an icy glare to show that he is angry.
