''Parker'' is a 2013 action flick starring Creator/JasonStatham and Music/JenniferLopez, adapted from Donald Westlake's novel ''[[Literature/{{Parker}} Flashfire]]''.

Parker (Statham) is a professional thief whose code of ethics involves not stealing from the poor or hurting innocent people. After getting stabbed in the back and left for dead by his crew, Parker tracks them down to Palm Beach, Florida in order to get revenge, where he enlists the help of Leslie Rogers (Lopez), a real estate agent who helps him rob his former friends.

!!Tropes:
* AdaptationalHeroism: Parker. See LighterAndSofter below.
* {{Badass}}: It's a Jason Statham movie, who do you think?
* BadHabits: Parker dresses as priest for the first heist.
* TheCaper: One in the beginning, second at the end, and a ''third'' one to mess with the second.
* DamselInDistress: Leslie Rogers siezes the [[IdiotBall Idiot Ball]] [[spoiler: by going to the hideout]] and nearly bollixing Parker's play.
* DisneyVillainDeath: The hitman.
* DisposableWoman: ''Subverted''.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: During the opening heist, Parker deals with a panicking security guard by calmly talking him down.
* GentlemanThief: Parker.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Apparently [[Series/TheShield Vic]] [[Creator/MichaelChiklis Mackey]] is now a full-on criminal.
* InformedAbility: The hitman. It should be the best, but we see him killing only an hapless character and he fails to kill Parker after surprising him from the back.
* ItWorksBetterWithBullets: Parker breaks into Melander's hideout and bends the firing pins on all of the gang's hidden guns he can find. This proves a vital precaution during his final confrontation with the gang.
* KnifeNut: The hitman sent after Parker and his loved ones.
* LeftForDead: Parker is shot by the gang, thrown out of moving car and then shot again (twice) before being kicked into a water-filled ditch and left for dead. He survives and comes back for revenge. Melander is furious when he learns that Hardwicke hadn't bothered to confirm Parker was dead before kicking him into the ditch.
* LighterAndSofter: Parker was a full-on VillainProtagonist in Westlake's novels. The film tones that down greatly, making him a GentlemanThief AntiHero.
* MsFanservice: Leslie. Especially in her underwear.
* MuggedForDisguise: Parker knocks out a male nurse and steals his uniform to escape from the hospital.
* NoHonorAmongThieves: Parker refuses to throw in with his partners and pool his share of the loot with them so they can pull a second a job. His partners shoot him, take his share of the loot and leave him for dead.
* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: Parker gets shot and stabbed to the chest (among other things), but just keeps on going.
* TakeOffYourClothes: Parker orders Leslie to strip so he can see she is not wearing a wire.
* TooDumbToLive: Arguably Parker; just knocked down an hitman? Forget about him and give him shoulders... Fortunately he is {{Made of Iron}}.
* UnscrupulousHero: Guess who.
