The Mechanic

Enjoyable work from Hollywood's go-to action guy


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.

13

Hey, man, nice shot!


Thriller

Rod Lott
Since the 2005 French thriller "13 Tzameti" was pretty good on its own, why bother to remake it? I have a theory: Sad to say, most Americans won't willingly watch movies that are in black and white, or have subtitles, or don't have famous faces they recognize. And they sure as hell won't watch movies that fall into all three categories of "liabilities," as "13 Tzameti" does.

Dark Angel

It comes in peace.


Action

Rod Lott
When did 1990's "I Come in Peace" become "Dark Angel"? More importantly, why? Did some porno cop its title? Now people will confuse it with that one TV series Jessica Alba did for James Cameron before she became a movie star.
