Trivia

From a performance standpoint, Jason Statham sees action sequences in the Mechanic franchise, as an outgrowth of who Arthur Bishop is as a character. Statham said: "You have to make it look inventive and smart, because Bishop's a guy who processes things as he goes along. We're trying to look like he's improvising with the location around him, which is quite difficult to do at times." Also challenging, says Statham, is keeping the action authentic: "It's trying to keep it realistic without it being over the top. With all the different action that we do, and no matter what the location is, we want to try and keep an element of realism. Then there's the safety issue and fighting with the elements. It's one of the hardest aspects of making action movies." See more »

Goofs

After Bishop has a video call with Gina following his first kill for Crain, Crain takes a pair of handcuffs off Gina's wrists. However, in brief shot just before the video call, Gina was not handcuffed. Her arms were arms were on either side of her, not bound together. See more »

This word seems to lose it's meaning, but ill say it again: Fun
17 August 2016 | by gangstah_vinoSee all my reviews

This movie is fun! Nothing more than that.

Jason Statham is back and though this is not a good movie, it is a fun one and if you expected more than that you have no one else to blame but yourself.

Ill rate the movie with my usual ratingssystem which contains rating a few aspect of the movie with an overall total score at the end

Acting: 5/10. If Jason Statham looking stoically at everyone/everything isn't enough, we got jessica alba being used as a sex symbol first and an actress second. From Jason I can take it since it's his schtick, but jessica... yikes!

Action: 7/10. Though there were some cool scenes in there, nothing is original or great by any means. The action in the first the mechanic was better choreographed than in here.

Cinematography: 8/10. it is actually well shot and the action that is there is greatly shot with some wide angles here and there.

Dialogue: 3/10. I think they didn't even make a screenplay/script. they just went for it and came out with this.

Overall: 5/10. Wouldn't recommend it. It is fun and if there's nothing else in the cinemas i would recommend it while you were drunk and paid the matinée price :)
