Director Dennis Gansel’s Mechanic: Resurrection is a fine action thriller in which Jason Statham plays Arthur Bishop, a hitman, who is provoked out of retirement by a former colleague (Sam Hazeldine) to kill three extremely well-protected underworld figures and make the hits look accidental.
Bishop only agrees because his girlfriend (Jessica Alba) is being held captive and will be killed if he doesn’t complete his assignments within a scheduled time sequence.
The assignments are difficult in the extreme and Bishop’s artifice is fun to watch.
If you’re looking for thrills with a touch of humor, you’ll enjoy Mechanic: Resurrection. I give it a 3.1 out of 5.
