* 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.

Klute film poster

Klute (1971) (DVD) Directed by Alan J. Pakula (The Parallax View (1974), All the President’s Men (1976), Sophie’s Choice (1982)), starring Jane Fonda (Barefoot in the Park, (1967),  Barbarella (1968), They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? (1969), Coming Home (1978)) and Donald Sutherland (Don’t Look Now (1973), A Dry White Season (1989), A Time to Kill (1997)), with Roy Scheider (The French Connection (1971), Jaws (1975), and the soon-to-be-released thriller, Iron Cross))Jane Fonda quite deservedly won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance as the understandably emtionally conflicted upscale call-girl, Bree Daniel, in this excellent thriller, wonderfully, carefully directed by Alan J. Pakula.  Donald Sutherland is also very good as the enigmatic, out-of-down private detective, and Roy Scheider is perfect as the suave and slimy pimp. Michael Small’s music is quite effective, as well. (PR)

We recommend that you buy your DVDs.  Have a wonderful personal film library..
