    They should have replaced Lopez with Parker Posey.....they would have had an instant classic on their hands.

    Review: 'Parker' Is A Visually Indistinguishable, Punishingly Violent, And Painfully Inert Pulp Trifle | The Playlist

    Sadly such moments are few and far between in "Parker." Instead of being the swiftly constructed thriller it ought to be, a pulpy blast of all killer/no filler fun, it seems to be almost exclusively made of the fatty excess that these kind of stories immediately dispense with. Westlake's novels are punchy and suspenseful, but not here. Sequences drag on and on, for minutes on end, without any sign of what the point of the sequence is or why it should be included in the movie. There are at least a half dozen subplots, played over countless sequences (like Leslie's relationship with a pushy local cop played thanklessly by Bobby Cannavale), that are completely unnecessary. Oftentimes "Parker" plays like a collection of deleted scenes that, if presented on an elaborate DVD release, we would handily skip. [D]

    Is it just me or is Parker glaringly similar to Payback?

    Payback was based off Richard Stark's (Donald Westlake) Parker novels. Westlake had a thing about people using the name Parker in movie adaptions so you get movies like payback where the main character is called Porter or some other similar sounding name. Westlake's dead so i guess Hollywood can do whatever they want with the name now.


    Oh and if anyone's interested in graphic novels check this out.

    Second this. All three of Cooke's adaptations are excellent.

    The book was also adapted as Point Blank, with Lee Marvin playing the Parker role back in the 60's (67, I think?). It's pretty different, but I liked it.
