I noticed that in today’s Guardian they measured the kill rate in Jason Statham’s movies. But what about his kill rate over time? Has he got more killhappy over the years?
Here’s a graph.
You can see that over the last decade, the general trend is that the number of kills in his movies is, indeed, increasing with time. There were nine in The Transporter (2002) and 13 in Crank (2006), for example. But then things really stepped up: 60 kills from In The Name of the King, before we get to The Expendables, which had a Statham-induced body count of 82.
Just so you know.
