Disposable action thriller for fans of Jason Statham only. Tommy Lee Jones is the best part and he comes in like an hour into the plot but seems like he's from a better film.

Mechanic: Resurrection is bad and that shouldn't be surprising. I know this isn't suppose to be taken too seriously, but even when I turn off my brain, I still didn't like this. Even the action scenes didn't thrill me. But the only positive thing that I can about "Resurrection" is that it's at least not as dark or serious as the Mechanic film, with this one being dumb fun.

"Mechanic Resurrection" by Yojimbo

Bishop's happy retirement is interrupted by a shady figure from his past who kidnaps his new sweetheart and demands that he assassinate three near inaccessible targets.

Jason Statham returns as the invincible assassin for hire in this sequel to his typically cheap and cheerful vehicle The Mechanic. The fact that it features some star names in the supporting cast gives the impression that Resurrection may be a more of a heavyweight affair, and Tommy Lee Jones's near-cameo appearance does add some sparkle to the story. Jessica Alba's military-trained, Mother Theresa-like hottie (because, you know, they're a thing...) is as wooden as always however and Michelle Yeoh's "character" is little more than a yellowface stereotype. In fact the first half of the film is incredibly clunky in every ...

You can enjoy Statham's fighting moves.That's it

"I spend my whole life settin' people up to die Let's set you up to live."

Believe me, I'm an avid fan of Jason Statham and won't refuse to watch a film in which his muscularity appears. In addition, I also realize that a real Jason Statham movie won't ask much effort from your brain. Most of his films are brainless movies in which a lascivious, well-formed beauty occurs from time to time. In addition, Statham's talents as an action figure and practitioner of martial arts is extensively demonstrated in these movies. And that's exactly what you can admire in "Mechanic: Resurrection". The film has just begun and Statham already needs to dig up his fighting techniques. Unfortunately, the rest of the film is of a pitifully low level. It's rather a mind below zero movie ...

Should've Went Straight-to-DVD

'Mechanic: Resurrection' is the surprise sequel to 2011's (mostly good) 'Mechanic' remake. I say surprise, because I don't think anyone ever thought that film would receive a sequel. What we get with 'Resurrection' is basically a straight-up rendition of your typical 80's/90's style B-rate silly action farce. Statham is fully capable of delivering an entertaining ride on that level, as he's proven many times, but here even the material seems beneath him. It has the style and grit of those past action-ers, but what it lacks is any real substance or fun. This movie feels as if it were a straight-to-video production with less intent and care that got fashioned into a 'Mechanic' sequel by happenstance. If you made a couple of minor tweaks to the story you wouldn't even guess this was pa...
