Mechanic: Resurrection (2016)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Crime
The Mechanic sequel is alright but I think fans of the original movie would be disappointed. It is a simple storyline that is overused and expected if you looking for anything in the action genre category. To be fair, I did not think it was as bad many others have said in their reviews of this film. I actually was entertained and enjoyed the section when Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) was taking out the bad guys 🙂 . My favourite one was the “swimming pool” incident 😀 . The mission was great but the storyline did have problems. For example, I was not sure why the main character gave up his “safety” to protect a pretty girl Gina (Jessica Alba) who he met two days ago 😛 . Plus the ending when Bishop is getting the upper hand against the villain Crain (Sam Hazeldine) got a little messy as a storyline. The scenery is good and the action is plentiful. I haven’t watched the original movie so I am not sure how faithful to the story and characters this sequel was. However, if you looking for a simple action flick with an alight storyline with a mix of predictability then this is for you 🙂 . Though if you loved the original then maybe give this one a miss 😛 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 2.5 Stars out of 5!
