Someone has to fix the problems.
Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham, The Expendables) 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, The Pillars of the Earth) 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, Pandorum) 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 hitman 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.

Rotten: The Mechanic is like a Beretta loaded with blanks -- quick and brutal but ultimately empty.-Una LaMarche, New York Observer, April 04, 2011
Rotten: In the end, The Mechanic proves that while revenge is a dish best served cold, revenge movies are best served with fire in the belly.-Matthew Pejkovic, FILMINK (Australia), March 23, 2011
Fresh: Statham convincingly breaks faces with effortless ease. It's as if he studied at The Lee Strasberg Institute of Badassery. He is the Stanislavski of neck-stomping.-Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, March 22, 2011
Fresh: The assassin gets a conscience in this fast-paced action thriller that offers a few interesting twists between its huge stunts,"-Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile, March 21, 2011
was asked to write a review, but i have not seen this movie..i like jason statham's other movies however
Not a movie for young children, otherwise a good movie.
I love the original with Bronsan, as the other reviewer, but really enjoyed Jason Statham in the lead role. Statham is a great action actor and even when we don't get the pleasure of him without his shirt (ladies), his acting absolutely carries the scenes and the script. A great addition to any DVD collection!
the original, starring charles bronson is more and far better. anyway this new version is worth watching.
