Parker movie trailer revealed

Well, folks, here it is. A lot of you are going to be disappointed.

Not because the film looks bad. It looks like a fun action flick. But they couldn’t resist softening up the character a little bit. So yes, that awful bit about “don’t steal from people who can’t afford it,” that I had thought was bad reporting, turns out to be in the trailer. <Sigh>

So like every other depiction of Parker on film, this fellow isn’t Parker. He might be fun to watch, he might kick a lot of ass, but he won’t be Parker.

All is not lost, though. They’ve clearly stayed very close to the book (Flashfire), so even though Parker isn’t really Parker, it’s still one of Parker’s adventures.

And at least it looks like a good time at the movies. I do hope it’s a hit and that they make sequels.

Via Dave, here’s a fellow who saw a rough cut of the film and reviews it (spoilers). He says it’s a lot of fun and gives it a grade of B+. And here is the Facebook page for the flick.
