Jason Statham shoots, kicks, jumps and humps his way through The Mechanic trailer

5 years agoby:

Like the Sylvester Stallone films of the 80s, the Jason Statham action film has almost become a genre unto itself. In theory, this movie has nothing to do with the TRANSPORTER films but if you watched this trailer and the title card came on at the end and said TRANSPORTER 4 would be at all surprised?

The film is basically Jason Statham being Jason Statham, i.e., steel reserve, British accent, kicking your ass, f*cking your woman and a perfect five o'clock shadow. The plot is ostensibly about a hitman training a younger hitman (while Donald Sutherland sports a fairly bitchin beard) but that's not to say it won't be enjoyable for what it is. Check out the trailer below and get ready for THE MECHANIC, in theaters this January.

Extra Tidbit: Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent starred in the original 1972 film.

Foster was very solid in Alpha Dog, 3:10 to Yuma, Pandorum, and The Messenger. It would nice to see him get some more stuff.

As a Fan of the Original I can see this is a remake by name only,so it wont have one of the best endings to a film but as a Action Flick fuck it looks Good.

The Mechanic looks way better than The Transporter and Crank.

P.S. british accent sounds way better than yank accent!

I actually just went back and

watched the trailer and this one does make it look a helluva a lot better than the last. I'm super pumped now! Also, Ben Foster was awesome in Alpha Dog...

I'm not only a fan, I'm also the fan club president

Someone said last week he's really embraces his role/typecast ala Eastwood style and can still step out and show his chops in movies like Bank Job, London, and of Course LS2SB, and Snatch. It's be nice to see him get a big action vehicle. I could possibly see him as a future villian in the Bond series as well. Statham's the man and he's here to stay!

I'll watch anything with Statham. I hope he doesn't do a stupid kids comedy anytime soon like every action hero I knew and loved.

Same Old S***

The plethora of generic action movies is just as depressing as the plethora of generica rom-coms. Doesn't anyone have an original idea anymore?

Trailer gives too much away. That being said, it's much better than the first trailer from a few weeks ago.
