According to the movies anyway. Thankfully, while Jason Statham is still ploughing this furrow, his fellow dodgily accented action hero seems ready to try out a very different "set of skills".

She told Radio Times magazine: ''It's a silly spoof, but it passes the time.

A Walk Among the Tombstones: Finally, a Liam Neeson movie was as potent as Liam Neeson

They've done it at last: made a Liam Neeson-stomps-some-ass flick where, as the credits roll, there's more stuff to be glad you saw than Neeson himself. Based on one of those Lawrence Block novels that's pretty smart but also too invested in the mechanics of rape and torture, the movie's a grim beauty, shot like nobody told writer-director Scott Frank he's supposed to be churning out schedule-filling late-summer product.

The Prince movie review: You keep hoping therein may lie a tale

WHY would you sit an 18-something girl, who has just lapdanced on her friend's father's only partially reluctant crotch, who is clearly high if not downright drunk and who has just been shot at by determined goons, down and tell her something about Roman kings and Scotland? Clearly, you need to find something for John Cusack to do in this mess of a film apart from look groggy eyed, but really who believes that all those trigger-happy ganglords out in New Orleans were thinking Romans and Scotland when they gave Jason Patric's Paul the title 'The Prince'? Particularly when, as portrayed by Patric, Paul is one of the most uncharismatic bad asses to walk these Hollywood streets .
