Someone Has to Fix the Problems.
Follows an elite hit man as he teaches his trade to an apprentice who has a connection to one of his previous victims.

"Short, fast and nasty, The Mechanic is considerably more fun than the rather lethargic original.  Lou Lumenick, dvd York Post
"...thoroughly bloody action film.  Mary Pols, Time
"....gloriously insane.  Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

Editor's Note
Seasoned hitman Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) sets out to avenge the brutal murder of his mentor, Harry (Donald Sutherland), and finds himself joined by Harry's vengeful son (Ben Foster), who is eager to follow in his late father's footsteps, in this remake of the 1972 action thriller starring Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent. Harry taught Arthur how to be a detached killer who always hits his mark. Now Harry is gone, and for the first time in Arthur's career it's about to get personal. As lone-wolf assassin Arthur prepares to hunt down Harry's killers, he is approached by his fallen mentor's vengeful son, Steve, who is eager to take up the lethal tools of his father's trade. Unadept at working with a partner yet compelled to help Steve carry on the family tradition, Arthur agrees to take him on as a protégé. Later, the duo begins to methodically eliminate their targets, forging a partnership born of blood with each new hit. The closer Arthur and Steve get to the name at the top of their list, however, the more apparent it becomes that his job will be anything but business as usual.

Expert Review The Mechanic - DVD Review
filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 5/17/2011 4:00 AM
To paraphrase Roger Murtaugh, 43-year-old Jason Statham might be getting too old for this bone-crunching, head-smashing, action-thriller nonsense. Take this into consideration. Statham's latest, a taut remake of Charles Bronson's vengeance thriller The Mechanic, boasts a jarring fistfight near the middle of the film's second act. Walls are demolished, furniture is shattered, faces are bloodied, and bones are broken. But the explosive scuffle -- truly one of the grittiest, most authentic on-screen brawls I've seen in recent months -- takes place between a 350-pound gorilla of an assassin and Ben Foster, Statham's younger co-star....read the full review
