The Mechanic…


The Mechanic was an OK film. It didn’t have the style of The Transporter franchise, or the grittiness of the Bourne franchise, but it was obviously meant to appeal to that fan base.

I like Jason Statham in action films. He moves well and works angles really nicely. There wasn’t really any of that in this film. Kinda wasting his best feature in my opinion.

Ben Foster has carved himself a really good niche as an intense nutter. He does it really well and was one of the best things in the film. I was just watching the screen waiting for him to go pop. 🙂

All in all, not the worst visit to the cinema, but not really as good as I was hoping.

  1. I prefer Jason Statham’s older films like the first Transporter movie. He was cast well for these and nowadays the casting is not fitting for his persona. Now if you get back into shape you could be the techie version of the Transporter!

  2. Speaking of Charles Bronson in The Mechanic:
    slap a Charlie Chan mo on Matt Damon, and you got Bronson at a much younger age.
