No doubt about it. Premiered in June 2013. Got a very limited release in the U.S. - 19 theaters for 2 weeks.
In the UK it was titled Hummingbird
, in France Crazy Joe
and in the U.S. Redemption
. A change of pace for Jason Statham who gets to do a little more character acting than usual but with the trademark Statham kick-ass moments. A traumatized Afghanistan veteran who returns to the UK and lives as a homeless person until events force a change in the course of his life. One unusual set piece is that he gets to romance a nun.
Why was it titled Hummingbird
? You'll have to see the movie to understand. If you're a Statham fan you'll enjoy it, if you're not - then you're not. 7/10.
