    Hornet’s Nest!

    By Robert Waldman

    Everyone needs a job. Even washed up/washed out spies. With apologies to Sir Sean Connery and James Bond modern action heroic icon Jason Statham (The Transporter) returns to the fold in the surprisingly entertaining The Beekeeper. Masterful director David Ayer is at the helm of this sly revenge flick now playing at Cineplex Cinemas and Lionsgate Theatres across B.C. Courtesy of VVS Films. And they deliver the goods. In spades!

    What do spies do when they are put out to pasture? Well In the case of Adam Clay He takes up the calling of tending to bees. Out In the quaint secluded countryside this reclusive chap Enjoys the quiet life as a tenant to the nicest of women , the saintly all trusting Eloise Parker. Trust can only go so far. So when a click or two on the computer leads to a cascade of distress for good old Eloise Clay Is left to pick up the pieces. Sort of.

    Having learned the purpose of a hive and with the playbook intact from his former role as a covert intelligence operative with a license to kill our distinctive loner Sets out on a mission to track down the people responsible for Ms. Parker’s untimely Downfall. The results aren’t pretty. One man against an evil corporate empire whose tentacles may well reach into the highest offices of the land are just some of the obstacles standing in the way of getting at the truth and punishing those responsible for duping an elderly woman of her lifetime achievements.

    Far-fetched? For sure. But full on fun? You bet. Statham is terrific in all the action stunts and his quips with the kills are reminiscent of good old old Arnold and Sly during their respective heydays. If you want action that’s non stop with a hero you can trust and believe in then Jason Statham is your man and The Beekeeper is your film. And with a group of co-stars headed by smooth as ice Jeremy Irons ( Die Hard: With a Vengeance ) Simon says you can’t – and won’t go wrong watching this film.
