Trivia

The legendary Vic Armstrong said of this movie: "I'm very excited to be working on this film. My whole professional life has been spent working on series - James Bond, Superman, Indiana Jones, Charlie's Angels, and Spider-Man, among others - and I've been lucky to have worked with some of the best action stars in the world. I sincerely feel that Jason Statham is one of those now. I'm thrilled to be working with him, as he comes from a physical background, which makes life so much easier when we set up and coordinate the stunts. We work out the fights, the logistics and the actual movement, and Jason has a huge input into all of it. For me, it's gratifying to work with an actor that's got a left and a right foot, intend of two left feet can throw punches, can run and fight. What's even more important, is that he also knows how to translate action into a visual." See more »

Goofs

When Bishop places the pack of cigarettes, gum and tin of shark repellent down at the prison checkpoint, the tin changes position from the left-hand page of the guard's book, to the right side, and back again between shots. Strangely the guard searches scrutinizes the cigarettes and gum, but never touches or opens the tin. See more »

It's dumb, but fun
24 December 2016 | by HellbillyDeluxeSee all my reviews

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.
