Using his accent when saying his name is mandatory. A resident of the UK and expert kickboxer, 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 ''TheTransporter'' and ''Film/{{Crank}}'' films; he is also a frequent collaborator with Jet Li and has also done voice-overs for ''[[RedFaction Red Faction II]]'' and the original ''CallOfDuty''. A good rule of thumb when considering Jason Statham movies for viewing: if the film in question cannot be alternatively titled ''Jason Statham Drives A Car And Kills People ([[PerpetualFrowner While Scowling A Lot]])'', it most likely isn't that good. Holds the honor of being the only major Hollywood Action star to NEVER have played a kind, soft-hearted and/or sensitive character (though his interaction with his young charge in the second ''TheTransporter'' film somewhat subverts this); judging from the success and popularity of his cold and mean-spirited typecast, he probably never will. !!Films * ''Film/LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels'' * ''Film/{{Cellular}}'' * ''Film/{{Snatch}}'' * ''Turn It Up'' * ''Film/GhostsOfMars'' * ''Film/TheOne'' * ''Film/TheTransporter'' series * ''[[Film/TheItalianJob2003 The Italian Job]]'' remake * ''Film/{{Collateral}}'' (he cameos as his "Transporter" character Frank Martin) * ''Film/{{Revolver}}'' * ''Film/ThePinkPanther'' (2006 remake) * ''Film/{{Crank}}'' series * ''Film/{{War}}'' * ''Film/TheBankJob'' * ''Film/InTheNameOfTheKing: A DungeonSiege Tale'' * ''Film/DeathRace'' * ''Film/TheExpendables'' * ''WesternAnimation/GnomeoAndJuliet'' * ''Film/TheMechanic'' (2011 remake) * ''Blitz'' * ''13'' * ''Film/{{Safe}}'' * ''Film/KillerElite'' * ''Parker'' * ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Fast And Furious 6]]'' [[spoiler: in the form of a {{Stinger}} cameo as the older brother of the villain and, as a result, the villain in Fast 7.]] !!Video Games * ''VideoGame/RedFaction II'' * ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty''

An example that is completely spoiler-tagged out is not a very good example.
