About the Movie
JASON STATHAM (The Bank Job, The Expendables) is Arthur Bishop, a ‘mechanic’ – an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It’s 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 (DONALD SUTHERLAND, The Italian Job) is murdered he is anything but detached – HE WANTS THOSE RESPONSIBLE DEAD. His mission grows complicated when Harry’s son Steve (BEN FOSTER, The Messenger, 3:10 to Yuma) approaches him with the same vengeful goal and a determination to become ‘a mechanic’. Bishop, the loner and methodical hit man reluctantly takes on an impulsive apprentice. But while in pursuit of their ultimate mark, deceptions threaten to surface and those hired to fix problems become problems themselves.
A great watch!
I really enjoyed this, it's a great violent 'man movie'! The end was pretty cool, although I wished Jason Statham would sometimes play a different type of character (He's just like Transporter, or Crank) but overall not much fault picking to be had here.
Good action flick with a credible (albeit fictional) story line. Worth the watch.
