NON-Inspirational Viewing – The Mechanic (2011)

11 September, 2011

As I mention in my look at Charles Bronson’s The Mechanic (1972) it was party in preparation for seeing the 2011 remake

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend the 2011 version of the Mechanic to anyone.  For all of the flaws of the original, it is a superior movie on all counts to its modern successor.  As a movie about a professional assassin, it does not work and as an action movie it is still below average.  Surprisingly, I can find nothing worth recommending this movie for.  The action lacks drama, the plot is riddled with holes and the acting is unengaging at best.  Find something else to watch, your 90-minutes will be better spent.
