The principal I represent has an offer for you. He'd like 3 men killed. Each death must look like an accident. Your specialty I believe. Seems that reports of your demise have been greatly exaggerated.
[plays a video of his death]
My principal can make that known to certain interested parties. Which means that your new life here would end rather quickly.
[looks around and sees henchmen surrounding him]
Or you can do the job and go back to being dead. What's your pleasure Senior Otto Santos?

Sure, this movie is dumb and has a lot of plot holes. Speaking of plot: There is no such thing as a plot. The "plot" is merely an excuse for the Action in this movie. But this is exactly where it does succeed: Jason Statham is kicking some major ass here and this is where the movie is entertaining. And let's not forget the beautiful scenery, and I'm not talking about Jessica Alba here, even though she has quite a few Action scenes as well and isn't just the Damsel in Distress.
All in all, it's a great Jason Statham movie, with fun Action and a beautiful and diverse scenery. Just don't expect too much. But if you're in the need for a dumb yet entertaining Action movie, Mechanic: Resurrection is just the thing you're looking for. Call it a guilty pleasure, but I really enjoyed it.
