3.0 out of 5 stars A decent remake, 7 Jun 2013
By 
This review is from: The Mechanic [DVD] (DVD)
Statham delivers his mean and moody best in this slick actioner from Simon West Stolen [DVD]. As the hit man of the title he does jobs around the globe for a shadowy organisation. The opening montage sees Arthur Bishop (Statham) complete a well staged hit which sets the scene for things to come. A further job sees him taking on a protegee who, unbeknown to Bishop, has some serious character flaws and will soon bear a dangerous grudge. He also has to deal with some doublecrossing by his paymasters. Simon West is a dependable director who delivers journeyman thrills which entertain but rarely stretch the genre. Having said that, there are some explosive engagements in this deftly handled remake and the ending is particularly well crafted.
