I like watching Jason Statham in action, particularly the Transporter series. So when I get to watch the special screening of Hummingbird, I jumped at it.
Joey ended up in a house after climbing in from the rooftop and manage to give the gangsters the slip. He soon discovered that the owner of the place were off for the summer and decided to squat at the place. After using up a credit card that was in the mail which he also gave to a nun named Cristina who's a volunteer that always pass out soup to the homeless guys, Joey being one of them, Joey decided to start his life anew and quit drinking and start getting jobs and was starting to get his life back together.
One of his jobs was working at a Chinese restaurant where one day, doubled up as a bouncer he ushered off a group of men but not without a fight. He drew the attention of the Chinese triads and was roped in to work for them in return for the opportunity of earning lots of money. Pretty soon, he made a mark for himself in the underground world as a person not to mess with.
I find this Jason Statham movie very disappointing. It's okay to not have much action scenes in them, but the drama of the movie kinda bores me to near death. I find myself almost drifting off to sleep a few times and this don't seem much like a Jason Statham type of movie but more of a romance type of movie. So I'm rating this 1.5 stars out of 5.
Hummingbird? I think this is a much more better Hummingbird show and it's real too:
