Prime Video’s new number one movie is my biggest surprise of the year, with viewers giving it a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes

I try not to prejudge a movie before I see it for myself. I see a lot of movies in theaters each year and I do my best to give each new release a fair chance. But I admit that before I saw “The Beekeeper,” I was convinced it was going to be awful.

All the signs were there. It hit theaters in mid-January, as the film is known. “garbage month” in the industry, and stars British tough guy Jason Statham, who (with all due respect) has been in plenty of scrapes over the years.
