Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Jason "Will Bad-ass 4 food" Statham
Cquote2.svg


Jason Statham is a Badass. Using his accent when saying his name is mandatory.

A resident of the UK and expert kickboxer, Statham is one of the few remaining straight-up action stars in Hollywood. He first drew attention for his roles in the films of Guy Ritchie (especially Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), but became a bona fide star with The Transporter and Crank films; he is also a frequent collaborator with Jet Li and has also done voice-overs for Red Faction II and the original Call of Duty.

A good rule of thumb when considering Jason Statham movies for viewing: if the film in question cannot be alternatively titled Jason Statham Drives A Car And Kills People (While Scowling A Lot), it most likely isn't that good.

Holds the dubious honor of being the only major Hollywood Action star to NEVER have played a kind, soft-hearted and/or sensitive character (though his interaction with his young charge in the second The Transporter film somewhat subverts this); judging from the success and popularity of his cold and mean-spirited typecast, he probably never will.
