"Mechanic: Resurrection" is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2011 Jason Statham classic...OK, let me just say, the 2011 remake to the 1972 film "The Mechanic" was a decent flick thanks to Simon West's understanding of the action genre, BUT did I think it was worthy of a sequel, let alone one five years later? Absolutely not, but alas, here we are, now to be honest I was actually interested in seeing this film, the trailers made it out to be a fast paced, dumb, straightforward action movie with a classic Tommy Lee Jones villain portrayal, well, I'm here today to tell you that trailer was BULLSHIT, not only is the film boring but the best part of the movie (Tommy Lee Jones) plays such a small, unimportant role in the film, he's just an excuse to prolong such an unenjoyable crap fest, Jessica Alba's only purpose in the film is to be a damsel in distress and get beaten up, its direction and editing is choppy, and the visuals are atrocious, it's an embarrassing film to be rewarded a wide, theatrical release.
