The Mechanic is getting ready to unload a world of hurt.. or fixing into theaters on January 28th. The crime thriller which stars Jason Statham throws him back to his roots of being the ultimate big screen bad ass. Good Guy ? Yes… but one with an agenda that is less then pleasant. The Mechanic is a remake of the 1972 movie starring Charles Bronson which was directed by Charles Winner.
Below you can checkout the trailer and give us some feedback. Jason Statham first hit the radar as the ultimate on screen tough guy with his role in Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and took that to new levels with the Transporter. Here is hoping that The Mechanic will continue his legacy and be as memorable as his other films.
Will you be seeing it in theaters when it opens?
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 – he wants those responsible dead.
His mission grows complicated when Harry’s son Steve (Ben Foster) approaches him with the same vengeful goal and a determination to learn Bishop’s trade. Bishop has always acted alone but he can’t turn his back on Harry’s son. A methodical hit man takes an impulsive student deep into his world and a deadly partnership is born. But while in pursuit of their ultimate mark, deceptions threaten to surface and those hired to fix problems become problems themselves.
