By now, I assume y'all know I'm a bit of a completionist, and I'm slowly buying the BluRays of all the movies based upon the Parker novels by Richard Stark. Most famous of these movies include Point Blank with Lee Marvin and Payback starring Mel Gibson (which I don't own because Gibson, but probably will buy used to take him out of the money chain).
If you're newer to the blog, when I traveled a lot for work, I read all 24 Parker novels and the Grofeld offshoots. The movies never match the books - writer Richard Stark (real name: Donald Westlake) was not willing to let them use the name "Parker" as he was aware that the movies would differ too much from the books, and movie people tend to miss the point of Parker. Which is 100% true. So the movies are all oddball mutations of Parker as a character and the plots of the novels - which, if done straight, would be fascinating stuff and probably spur a 1000 think pieces about following a character who is in no way a hero. He is not a badguy, but he is a bad guy.
