> Hummingbird review
"How skilled are you in the deadly use of the spoon?"
Until he finally encountered Digital Spy, it's highly unlikely Jason Statham was confronted with that opening gambit while promoting his latest movie Hummingbird.
A gritty and impressive drama by Eastern Promises writer Steven Knight, the movie showcases Statham's acting and spoon-wielding talents as traumatised former soldier Joey Jones, a homeless alcoholic who tries to turn his life around with the help of a Polish nun called Christina.
Statham also discusses the casting possibilities for the forthcoming Expendables 3 (but don't tell Sly!) and the stigma of being seen as an action movie star as opposed to an 'actor'.
Hummingbird opens in the UK on Friday, June 28.
