First of all, he is 54, and I’ve been thinking he is in 40s from 20 years ago to this day I found his real age on Wikipedia. There seems no visual proof that shows he is in 50s. I simply can’t believe he is such an attractive, highly action film suitable actor. The reason why I’m talking about him seriously is because I’ve just finished watching his latest movie “Wrath of Man”.
Japanese title was translated into “CASH TRUCK”, which is easy to understand for the most of Japanese who don’t like to take abstract English title. Anyway, it was a kind of simple plot with actions as usual of his movie, but since the director was “Guy Richie”, the atmosphere through the movie was really intense from the beginning to the end with intense back ground music. So, if you are a fan of his film, the person you would love to see a movie if he is in the movie, it’s highly recommended one. I could confirm that he was Jason Statham.
The first encounter of his movie was “Trasnsporter”. Almost 20 years has passed since I watched and got excited in 2002 (I was approximately 8 or 9 years old?). Still, I am a huge fan of the film, and since that time, I’ve been a fan of him. His cool character is sometimes my esthetic and Ideal man’s model. He has a strict rules on him, and live simply, and loving his car (which is exploded many times though). Here is a quote I love.
I always say, the way a man treats his car is how he treats himself.Transporter
Of course it would be really difficult to be like him, but I want to be like him in my way someday.
