The Mechanic (2011)

Monday, February 21, 2011


After a long hunt for a hot pair of heels, my grrrl and I went to the movies to catch a hot looking hunk... Okey, that sounded a bit gay... We went to watch The Mechanic, starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster... Here is the brief review...


THE GOOD

Statham

Statham got my attention when he starred in the movie Crank... Then he got more of my interest by giving excellent performance as an action movie actor in the The Transporter series... So, when Alief posted the trailer of The Mechanic on my Facebook page about a month ago, I got excited like "Yeayyy!!!! Jason fuckin' Stathammmm!!!"... Yeah, a bit gay there... 

Anyway, I need not elaborate more of how awesome Statham is a an action performer... He's mean, he's brutal, and he's fuckin' cool... Even though, he's a bit monotonous, but it didn't matter as his role was not that chatty... 

Cool guys don't look at explosions...

Ben Foster

He took the role of Steve McKenna, a fucked up brat seeking revenge for the murder of his father... Foster delivered something that Statham couldn't which was; emotions... He portrayed rage and sadness quite effectively...

 I may be fucked up but I kill almost like a pro...

Being Statham's apprentice, he also contributed some sloppy yet brutal action scenes... His most awesome scene was when he tried to murder Jeff Chase, the giant... It was so intense... and a bit funny... Seeing Foster being thrown against the wall like a child... yeah, a bit funny... You know what's even funnier?? Ben Foster acting gay... 


Action - Hitman Style!

Nothing is cooler than well planned assassinations... Some were made to appear as accidents, some were left obvious in order to leave a message... Which ever way, they looked cool... 

When things didn't go as planned? You give a good fight and run!! 


 
  

Seriously, I feel like watching the movie again just because of the action...  



THE BAD

 Censorship

According to other reviews, the sex scenes were feisty... Shit, I'm so downloading this movie later...


Pacing

The first 15 -20 minutes almost made me sleep (probably because the sex scene were cut out)... The producer took too much time to introduce the characters and to create conflict... Luckily, the pace built up as the real action started... 



All in all, The Mechanic is a cool action movie... The action is really good and the characters are cool... The story is simple, yet the plot is rather intense... However, if I ought to watch it again, I would definitely skip the first 20 minutes (except the sex scene of course)... Go watch it Statham fans!!



3 out 5 stars...
