Mechanic: Resurrection Review

Behind the Scene and other Major Plot Points
Best Hitman movie ever
Statham would make a great Agent 47 and I felt this did a better job at being a Hitman movie than the other 2 which were actually Hitman movies. As much as I like Timothy Olyphant and Rupert Friend, Jason Statham was way better.
Actually this is a really good point.
I don’t think Statham would happen in Hitman though, a 3rd franchise with a bald kick ass guy doing essentially the same thing? The Transporter, Mechanic AND Hitman? As well suited as he is it would get a bit much for people I think.
So cliched, but i still enjoyed quite a bit of this movie
It took so many elements from so many movies, and cooked it all together, but there were still things i enjoyed about it.
Best Jason yet
Full on from start to finish.
Bang, You’re Dead..
Haha, I loved the Under Siege referencing with Tommy Lee’s character.. When they showed him, and they were talking about the Submarines with intercontinental missile systems, I knew it wasn’t a coincidence that he was doing the cameo. The very end when he said “Bang, you’re dead” I got pretty excited (to myself of course).. Every 80s baby loved Under Siege..
Cool flick, nice views, twisty plot
Nice filming locations, classic plot, classic play and actors. What’s not to like.
Imagine Statham in a film with a good budget and script
I truly think Statham would improve any mission impossible film or jack reacher or James Bond
Star Jason Statham said Thailand ..
was “a tremendous place to go work. The nicest people you’ll ever get to work with. We spent most of our time there, and the warmth and generosity made for a terrific time. And it gave us such a beautiful backdrop.”
From a performance standpoint
…star action actor Jason Statham sees action sequences in the Mechanic franchise as an outgrowth of who his character 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.”
RT/Meta Critic Review
Bishop’s sudden rebellion trying to short-circuit the progression of the argument through kicks and punches, and final boss Tommy Lee Jones are the two gems of this film.(Click here to see)
