Becky and I went to see The Mechanic last night at the AMC Theaters in Castle Rock, CO. The MovieFone website at The Mechanic describes the movie as follows:
“‘Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) is a “mechanic” — an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It’s a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business. But when his mentor and close friend Harry (Donald Sutherland) is murdered, Bishop is anything but detached. His next assignment is self-imposed…”
The Mechanic is a film that I was really looking forward to seeing. I like Jason Statham in his action flicks. He always has great action in his flicks, super cool cars and sometimes a good story. However, some of this movies like Crank for example, totally suck and that’s one of the challenges with his movies. They can be a hit or a miss.
The Mechanic is definitely a miss. It’s just non-stop violence without a real story that is very interesting where you can get emotionally attached to the characters. He’s a “mechanic”, which is a fancy name for a hit man, and he’s definitely the best at his job. He takes another guy under his wings though who is just into killing people and the film gets super violent and it just isn’t fun, but ridiculous.
We can’t say this is worth the price of admission. Becky thought it was a total waste of time and I would rate it a rental.
