Goofs

Early in the film, Bishop gives his father's watch to Gina as a remembrance of him and his promise to return and rescue her. Throughout most of the film after that, he does not have the watch on his wrist until there are underwater scenes and shots of him trying to sneak on board Crane's boat near the end. The watch is plainly visible since his forearm is in the foreground. See more »

★★ - another unnecessary sequel
27 August 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Everyone loves a good Statham movie, but when they're bad they're terrible. The trouble with Mechanic: Resurrection is that he never really looked in any danger, at no point do you think he could lose. Although that's pretty cool, it sucks the tension away.

Shelby and Mosher's screenplay doesn't help matters either. Some of the dialogue is way too cheesy, and there are tons of plot points that make no sense, which takes you out of the movie to ask yourself "why would they do that?". The action sequences are pretty intense to watch, but the fast paced editing and shaky close-ups make the fights pretty unintelligible. Worse than all that, though, is the hilarious animation. Clearly they did that bit last once the budget had all but dried up, leaving us with tacky, dated CGI that would look more at home on a PlayStation 2 game.

On to the characters - Statham is Statham, he does the same thing in everything and you either like him or don't. The real tragedy is Alba. She tries to have depth, but she's just there for one reason - a beautiful woman that Statham can fall unconvincingly in love with after a few hours. Hazeldine, as Statham's nemesis, is all over the place. He tries to match his voice and mannerisms, but completely fails and feels massively underwritten, whereas Jones (as good as he always is) is just there to pick up the cheque.

Mechanic: Resurrection is pretty light and daft, but has no substance or uniqueness. It's yet another franchise that really didn't need a sequel.

2/5
