An explosive action movie with Jason Statham at its best. I believe its an all around action thriller. Its packed to the brim with explosions, headshots and even a destructive car chase.

It's actually quite a good movie of its type - an action thriller. Both Jason Statham and Ben Foster do excellent jobs as the protagonists, the plot is fun, the villain is villainous. It moves along crisply and I thought it was better than the Charles Bronson original (which is pretty good considering this one doesn't have Charles Bronson). If you want a straightforward action flick you'll enjoy this one. Expand

It was predictably shallow on plot and large on action but sometimes I enjoy a simple action flick. My biggest complaint will go unnoticed by all but the true gun geeks out there.

My biggest complaint will go unnoticed by all but the true gun geeks out there. The close up of an ejecting case in slow motion was obviously a blank round. Its a stupid complaint I agree, but if your going to the trouble of filming it up close and in slow motion you should get it right! Expand

What's next, Jason Statham in '' The dishwasher ''. This movie is like a 9th Transporter or something. But I still enjoy it.

This movie is like a 9th Transporter or something. But I still enjoy it. There was some scenes that you say '' Man, he just got own '' or '' That sh*t was bad ass ". You couldn't really see the action very well because the cameras were moving really fast, then somebody dies and you're wondering what just happened. It's still an enjoyable movie and a good one to see with some friends. Jason Statham was awesome in this movie, just like all of his other ones. Expand

I really enjoyed this movie. Not perfect but a great action packed thriller. Special effects were cool and the actors did a great job. No complaints. Solid movie! Go see it!

Jason Statham will probably never win an Oscar, an he has let himself fall into the same rut of being type casted as the "bad boy killing machine" but hey, he's good at it. With the success of Transporter and Crank....The Mechanic smell like another action hero series to me!!!

Acting: Good
Storyline: Good
Characters: Great

A scene where you find the lead character is like a superman (invincible? you know what I mean) is all there. If you're looking for a fun action movie to watch, I think this movie is pretty good! One of the movie that you should check if you're Statham fans. Expand

I went to see this movie expecting action and that is exactly what I got. Sure the movie was predictable but who really goes to see a kick a$$ show with Jason Statham for anything more then good fast action... not me. He is the top actionI went to see this movie expecting action and that is exactly what I got. Sure the movie was predictable but who really goes to see a kick a$$ show with Jason Statham for anything more then good fast action... not me. He is the top action actor at present and the movie was well edited and flowed very nicely. Unlike Faster which was a little too slow given the name, The Mechanic was exactly as portrayed in the trailer. Definitely the perfect "guys night out" movie to see. Expand

Very good movie, Jason Statham looks like he is having a decent time if you have seen movies like "Chaos" or "The Transporter" its one of those kind of movies. it does go on to tell what a mechanic really is but only in a brief description.Very good movie, Jason Statham looks like he is having a decent time if you have seen movies like "Chaos" or "The Transporter" its one of those kind of movies. it does go on to tell what a mechanic really is but only in a brief description. very fun movie though it does a good job doing character development in till it comes to him killing his friend and it doesn't give that much of a back-story but you are suppose to feel sorry for this character. it does really good though when it shows how Jason Statham is feeling sorry for what he did and he really does good showing the psychological impact it has of someone killing their good friend.

Statham is brilliant yet again. He may not be in line for an academy award but that is not what he is going for. Solid action performance in a reasonably entertaining film.

Love the action!!!
Soundtrack gets annoying towards the end of the movie 'cos they're all the same...
Story is pretty typical - lacks any surprise... & it was written in a somewhat childish way, especially at the end... it was really between

A typical action movie, with guns, fights and explosions, but a lot of fun to watch. Some fairly brutal fighting as expected from almost any movie with Statham in it, worth watching.
