Overview

The Mechanic

Seasoned hitman Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) sets out to avenge the brutal murder of his mentor, Harry (Donald Sutherland), and finds himself joined by Harry's vengeful son (Ben Foster), who is eager to follow in his late father's footsteps, in this remake of the 1972 action thriller starring Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent. Harry taught Arthur how to be a detached killer who always hits his mark. Now Harry is gone, and for the first time in Arthur's career it's about to get personal. As lone-wolf assassin Arthur prepares to hunt down Harry's killers, he is approached by his fallen mentor's vengeful son, Steve, who is eager to take up the lethal tools of his father's trade. Unadept at working with a partner yet compelled to help Steve carry on the family tradition, Arthur agrees to take him on as a protégé. Later, the duo begins to methodically eliminate their targets, forging a partnership born of blood with each new hit. The closer Arthur and Steve get to the name at the top of their list, however, the more apparent it becomes that his job will be anything but business as usual.

I've watched this movie two or three times and think it terrific! It's much better than the original. The leads (Statham and Foster) make you believe they are who they are portraying. All and all, this is a great Statham movie and I'm a fan.

This film doesn't live up to his more memorable action flicks from yester year. On the bright side, it is better than all of Nicholas Cage's latest films.

Though it started out a little slow, it really began to pick up about half an hour in. The story was intreging enough for an action movie, and the bits of action that were in it were pretty cool. I admit, I was hoping for a bit more action than what there was, but it still had some decent action scenes within it. Statham and Foster both did pretty good in this movie. It wasn't until I rented it, too, that I read it was a remake of an old Charles Bronson movie of the same name. I was told by a few people I ought to see the original too, so I will probably make a point to see it at some point as well. If you like good action movies, I would recommend at least giving this one a watch.
