One of the first Statham film's I've seen. Wonderful direction and action sequences that keeps your adrenaline flowing. The Mechanic even has a good cast and sincere acting. Definitely a must watch for those who enjoy films related to hitmen.

Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) is the perfect hit-man or lethal assassin (whichever you prefer to call it) who works for "the company", which is never named, so I'm going to call it Evil, Incorporated. Evil, Inc is run by two guys: the soft spoken, wheelchair bound older guy Harry (Donald Sutherland) who's been Bishop’s friend since forever. The other guy has a corporate haircut, wears an expensive suit and rides around in a convoy of sleek black vehicles, accompanied by sunglasses-wearing men with guns.

Being a hit man is a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business but when his mentor and close friend Harry is murdered, Bishop is anything but detached. His mission grows complicated when Harry's alcoholic loser son Steve …
