Jason Statham’s movie output has largely been a series of identikit films, with the plot slightly changing but the action and The Stath’s character staying largely the same. However Hummingbird may be something a little different, showing his softer side.
The movie sees him an ex-Special Forces soldier who tries to avoid a court martial, but ends up homeless on the streets. He attempts to reinvent himself by breaking into a rich businessman’s apartment, but soon finds himself dragged back into the criminal underworld.
The movie is the feature film directing debut of Steven Knight, who’s best known for writing Eastern Promises and Dirty Pretty Things, which certainly suggest this will be more of an acting challenge for Statham than normal.
