The Mechanic Movie Review

Up to a certain point, The Mechanic feels like your usual action movie. Jason Statham plays a taciturn killer named Arthur Bishop who excels in sending bad people to the other side while letting it look like accidents. Since you can’t fill a movie with only sending another bad guy to the other side Bishop one day gets the order from his “company” to kill his old mentor because that guy must have leaked some crucial information of an operation.

The Mechanic really starts as your generic and mediocre action flick. Even someone living under a rock could guess that Statham’s character was being set up. But who gives? I’m the first one to ignore a story if at least the movie delivers on the action part. Explosions, fighting, broken bones
