The Mechanic

Jason Statham. You know the rest.


Action

Rod Lott
Whether “The Transporter” or now “The Mechanic,” Jason Statham has one job in Hollywood, but he does it quite well: being cinema’s most reliable action star of the 21st century.

Free thoughts with the Kern clan


Letters to the Editor

Andy Sands
Regarding the Rev. Steve Kern’s Commentary “Counterpoint: Scrutinizing science” (April 13, Gazette), Rev. Kern expresses his deep desire for Oklahoma’s students to be freethinkers and use their own reasoning.

Wanda Jackson — Unfinished Business


Rock

Phil Bacharach
You can’t keep genuine royalty from flaunting their power. Wanda Jackson, the 1950s’ Queen of Rockabilly who set the standard for rock ’n’ roll women and even managed to get Elvis Presley hot and bothered, is back with Unfinished Business.

The Expendables 2

Bigger, better, badassier.


Action

Rod Lott
Preceding the start of The Expendables 2 is an ad for its tie-in video game. Why bother playing such a thing when so many sequences of the the movie make you feel like you're doing so already? I mean that as a compliment, because as directed by Simon West (The Mechanic), the sequel’s 15-minute prologue is so unrelenting in nonstop action that it’s likely to turn you giddy.

I Am Bruce Lee

They call him Bruce.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I was incorrect in thinking the documentary I Am Bruce Lee wouldn't reveal anything new about the screen's greatest martial artist. While not exactly earth-shattering, the facts I learned numbered many.

Hope Springs

And yet it also falls flat.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Meryl Streep is in a rut — not the actress, who's arguably still atop her game in her fifth decade of screen stardom, but the character she plays in Hope Springs. Long married to frowny sad sack Arnold (Lincoln's Tommy Lee Jones, not exactly stretching), Kay feels more like a roommate than a wife. They don't even share a bedroom any more.
