Jason Statham is an accomplished martial artist, film producer, diver, and a great actor. He is well-known for his masterpieces in the industry especially when it comes to action movies. Here we take a look at the best Jason Statham movies of all time that his fans shouldn’t miss:
15. War (2007)
War is a man’s film. It narrates the story of an FBI agent whose companions were exterminated by a disreputable slayer, and he sets out to seek vengeance. The narrating is fairly acceptable, particularly in making anticipation and interest. What’s more, the battle arrangements are especially great. While War is essentially an average retribution film, it’s engaging and has a decent cast.
The film fits some fascinating battle arrangements, shootouts, and blade battles. There is a concise pursuit grouping among Statham and Jet Li, however, it seems like an idea in retrospect. There are no genuine moderate spots but then dissimilar to huge numbers of Statham’s prior works it allows you to relax.
14. Death Race (2008)
Death Race is constrained by a car race in which inmates must murder and brutalize each other on the road to victory. Jensen Ames (casting Statham) is a three-time speedway champion with a dark and dull past. An endurance master and ex-con whose shameful history causes issues down the road for him when he is confined for a homicide he didn’t commit.
This energizing film is brimming with explosions, staggering race vehicles with handy tricks, and CGI. The right mix of energetic music alongside vivid cinematography makes the film very appealing.
13. Chaos (2005)
Chaos is a skeptical, cruel, and pitiless movie. It’s not just another action film but a heartless depiction of cruelty and brutality. The movie is full of twists and turns and is a thrill ride that attempts to be crafty.
Although the plot twists are quite predictable it has decent character development and an engaging opening plot.
12. Safe (2012)
A below-average cage fighter on the blended martial arts circuit, Luke Wright carries on with a desensitizing existence of routine beatings, until the day he blows a fixed battle. The Russian Mafia kills his family, leaving Luke to meander the avenues of New York.
Between the really dreadful soundtrack and the cliches, there are still a few glimmers of splendid action and performance by the actors. The movie is a good time passer and surely a delight for Statham’s fans.
11. The Mechanic (2011)
A great thriller, The Mechanic is an exceptional action stuffed movie by the well-known director Simon West. Featuring Jason Statham, Ben Cultivate, and Donald Sutherland, the film has a solid cast that conveys great exhibitions. The story follows a professional killer who takes on a protege, yet is compelled to denounce any kind of authority when he’s deceived by his boss.
The Mechanic recounts a story as old as Hamlet in a style as new as unbaked bread. It’s a must-watch for any action fan that is especially into great movie endings.
10. Expendables 2 (2012)
The elite soldiers are back and are brought together when Mr. Church enrolls the Expendables to take on a straightforward mission. The errand resembles a simple check for Barney and his band of old-school hired soldiers but things go south when one member gets killed mercilessly.
The Expendables 2 makes a franchise out of a cliche plot, but with a nostalgic kick. It’s a film that will fulfill the neediest of action fans.
9. Crank 2 (2009)
Crank 2’s storyline is that Chelios is pursuing a Chinese hoodlum who seized his heart and subbed it with a mechanical one that should be shocked with an electric charge.
Crank 2 shouts craziness from the very start and anyone looking for a ‘realistic’ film will be disappointed.
8. Hobbs and Shaw (2019)
Fast and Furious Hobbs and Shaw is a non-stop action-packed brawl. There’s a cadence to it, and that pace is tweaked by the entertainers in question. The most appealing thing about the movie is the stunt technology used for vehicles, totally impressive!
Although the plot of the movie was very predictive if you have watched other series of Fast and Furious but still fun to watch.
7. The Italian Job (2003)
The movie offers some pleasantly thoughtless fun where the bad boys are genuinely villainous, the payback is fulfilling in a puerile manner, and the recognition of everything is strangely consoling.
The film impressed both the audiences as well as the critics and with time developed a cult following.
6. The Transporter (2002)
The marriage of James Bond and Hong Kong proceeds in The Transporter, a film that consolidates Bond’s lavish European areas and love of fatal toys with all the stunts of hand-to-hand fighting motion pictures. There is a lot of martial arts and car racing in the movie, a must-watch if you are a fan of action and thrill.
Shockingly, Statham did the greater part of the stunts himself.
5. Snatch (2000)
Guy Richie followed the achievement of Lock, Stock with a similarly staggering and aggressive, Snatch (just like Quentin Tarantino did with Pulp Fiction after the success of Reservoir Dogs). The film revolves around boxing, jewels, gangsters, a fat escape driver, a fairly horrendous canine, and man-eating pigs.
The characters are so beautiful they hop directly off the screen, the exchange so smart you need to learn it by heart, and the acting is awesome. The movie is completely flawless: from the soundtrack to production and direction. It is impossible to overlook this masterpiece.
4. The Bank Job (2008)
The workmanlike title “The Bank Work” is a pleasant fit for this wham-bam escapade flick. Proficiently directed by Roger Donaldson from a bustling content by Dick Merciful and Ian La Frenais. The movie whimsically returns to the secretive whose and theoretical how’s of a 1971 London vault cleanout on Dough Puncher Road more popularly known as the walkie-talkie burglary. The Bank Job is just a productive time-executioner with the special reward of being founded on a genuine misfortune.
It is a brilliant crime film, with especially a great performance by Jason Statham. Highly recommended, if you are a true Jason Statham fan!
3. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)
It is a crime caper and a comedy-drama based on London’s East end. The film is about a poker player named Eddy, who is bankrolled by three companions for a high-stakes game with Hatchet Harry, a gambling and pornography head honcho. Harry cheats, Eddy adds to a colossal obligation, and Harry’s Goliath authority, Barry the Baptist, clarifies that he will begin slashing fingers if the companions don’t settle up or hand over a bar having a place with Eddy’s dad.
The humor is as impolite and rough as the characters, yet the film absolutely isn’t lacking in energy. The script is crisp, the cinematography is on point, and the great acting by each casting. Best comedy in years!
2. Furious 7 (2015)
Furious 7 is a magnificent overcompensation. The movie is of one the best and most powerful spy films in the history of the film industry. It has a beautiful blend of thrill, action, and fun. The movie became a huge hit and caught more attention after the death of one of the main protagonists of the film, Paul Walker.
The film is made for the youngsters to have a rush and blast for their cash. The movie delivers stunts full of entertainment and mixes it with a comical plot that not only keeps its sense of humor but additionally contains a decent arrangement of heart and feeling. A highly recommended movie.
1. Spy (2015)
Statham, McCarthy, and Byrne are charismatic matches; and lucky all of them are a part of this movie. Spy is such a stress relief. Susan Cooper is an unassuming, deskbound CIA examiner, and the overlooked yet truly great individual behind the agency’s riskiest missions. Be that as it may, when her accomplice tumbles off the network and another top operator is undermined, she volunteers to dive deep covertly to penetrate the universe of a savage arms seller, and forestall a worldwide emergency. The movie is an excellent blend of action and comedy; it is hilarious. You won’t be disappointed if you are looking for a good comedy yet an action film.
Statham’s role in the film was especially a pleasant surprise for his fans as prior to this film he was mainly doing full-fledged action movies only.

- The Meg (2018)
- Cellular (2004)
