The Mechanic is the perfect example of the kind of movie that's really fun to get excited about when it's announced just because the pitch is so perfect -- Jason Statham remakes a bad-ass Charles Bronson hitman movie -- but that promptly fizzles the second you actually witness the cheap, lazy, cash-grabby way that pitch was executed. Movies like this are what make me curse my unconditional Statham love. I could've spent that 13 dollars on something useful! Like putting it towards a gun made up of other guns!
We are all about movies whose titles get straight to the point this week.
