Writer: John J. McLaughlin

From novel: Flashfire by Donald E. Westlake (as "Richard Stark")

Keywords: Crime, Heist

Film adaptation of the Donald Westlake novel Flashfire follows professional thief Parker as he seeks to exact revenge on a traitorous crew.

ABSTRACT
Jason Statham stars in this formulaic crime thriller as Parker, a Robin Hood-esque thief who makes his trade stealing from only the wealthy and powerful elements of society. Taking part in a heist conceived by mentor Hurley with a crew he has never met before that turns out a success, he is shot and left to die in a lake after refusing to be party to an exponentially bigger caper, emerging from a successful recovery in a hospital determined to exact revenge on those who double-crossed him.
