Film review: Hummingbird (15)
Showcased as a change of tack in Jason Statham's rise, this finds Hollywood's favourite hardman playing Soho down-and-out "crazy Joey", a fugitive soldier haunted by a season in Helmand.
Breaking into a loft apartment – conveniently kitted out with clothes that fit him – Joey goes in search of the sadist banker who killed his homeless friend.
Meanwhile he bankrolls a saintly nun (Agata Buzek) and her soup-kitchen mission in nearby Covent Garden.
The presence of Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things) as screenwriter promises something in the way of outcast London, but he can't shape this melodrama into anything plausible.
Once Joey throws in his lot with Chinese gangsters, Statham reverts to type.
