The Mechanic – Our Review
A loose remake of the old Charles Bronson flick by the same name, The Mechanic stars Jason Statham in the title role. The movie was pretty entertaining overall. Not quite as over the top and goofy as his last few outings, like “Crank”. This one has a decent story behind it, and the two lead characters are fairly well constructed. The action scenes are contrasted with more lead-up and back story, so the movie feels a bit more balanced than some of Statham’s movies. Be warned though, it’s pretty violent, so if you’re a bit squeamish about seeing people get their melons popped, might want to give this one a wide bert.
