* The Mechanic – Starring Jason Statham, Ben Foster, with Donald Sutherland

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 31 January 2012

The Mechanic (2011) Directed by Simon West (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)), starring Jason Statham (The Transporter (2002), The Italian Job (2003), Crank: High Voltage (2009)), Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma (2007)), with Donald Sutherland.  This violent action thriller, a remake of the 1972 film of the same name starring Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent, follows a professional assassin, or mechanic, as he eliminates, with efficiency, one target after another.  With its occasional touch of a certain humour, its fiery explosions, not to mention the use of all sorts of other weaponry, and ensuing abundant carnage, The Mechanic is not a film for everyone.  However, for the pleasure of watching Statham in action, and if one is willing to suspend moral judgement, of course, then The Mechanic, though far from a masterpiece of the genre, may be worth watching. (PR)

We recommend that you buy your DVDs.  Have a great personal film library..  Here are links to amazon.com (Amazon Instant Video, DVDs, and Blu-ray disks, in that order, when available):
