'Mechanic: Resurrection' Movie Review: Even Jason Statham's Saving Act Cannot Resurrect This Franchise!

 
'Mechanic: Resurrection' Movie Review: Even Jason Statham's Saving Act Cannot Resurrect This Franchise!
Star Cast: Jason Statham, Jessica Alba, Sam Hazeldine, Tommy Lee Jones and Michelle Yeoh

Director: Dennis Ganzel

Producer: John Thompson, Robert Earl, David Winkler and William Chartoff

Claps for: Jason Statham, Cinematography and Action Sequences

Slaps for: Predictable and clichéd Storyline, Poor Direction and Lazy Screenplay

What’s New: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Plot: Former assassin Arthur Bishop is spending his life in Rio De Janerio until he gets an invite from old pal Riah Crain for a project- to kill three of Crain’s major competition’s and make them look like accidents/natural deaths. However, Bishop refuses the offer.

What follows next is how Crain kidnaps Gina, Bishop’s lady love, and keeps her as a hostage while he gets his competitors killed by ‘The Mechanic’.

Performances: It’s Jason Statham’s show! The man brings in a certain kind of raw energy to his action sequences, and lets his body language and eyes do the talking for him. However, it’s time Statham takes his game a notch higher by doing better action films than such trashy sequels that completely depend on him to make it a one-time-watch.

Jessica Alba looks gorgeous and it gets hard to take your eyes off her! And how I wish Tomy Lee Jones had a bigger role than just a 5-minute appearance.

About The Movie: Let’s come straight to the point- this sequel lacks the intense charm of ‘The Mechanic’.

It gets pretty clear right from the start that the makers are trying to turn this one into a money-making franchise like a ‘James Bond’ or ‘Mission Impossible’. But with a done-to-death storyline and lazy screenplay like that- it’s HOPEFULLY the end of the road for the adventurous tales of Arthur Bishop.

The film begins with a bang and promises a fast-paced action-drama. But as the movie moves forward, you know you are in for a major disappointment.

Apart from the well-choreographed action scenes, background score and the exotic locations of Thailand, Brazil, Australia and Bulgaria; nothing works! The poor CGI effects get hard to ignore after a while.

Overall, Jason Statham’s act and Jessica Alba’s are the only saving grace here. And nothing, yes nothing, can resurrect this franchise except for a miracle.

Combo-On-Offer: Action + Drama

Verdict: Except for Jason Statham, nothing works in the worthless sequel. Hence, we give ‘Mechanic: Resurrection’ TIGHT SLAPS.
