Jason Statham, Ben Foster and Christa Campbell in The Mechanic Trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
As I was watching this trailer, I honestly forgot what movie it was for. Was it WAR, THE TRANSPORTER, DEATH RACE? I couldn’t remember. The point, of course, is that this looks to be on par with the action movies we’ve seen over the past 10 years from Statham. They’re not bad, but you know what you’re getting before you buy the ticket. In THE MECHANIC, Statham teaches the skill of being a hitman to Ben Foster. Of course, things take a violent turn when one of the jobs doesn’t go as planned. Along with Statham and Foster, the film stars Donald Sutherland, Jeff Chase and Christa Campbell. Simon West (TOMB RAIDER) is directing with a release date of December 15th.
If the title sounds familiar, then you know your early 70’s movies frighteningly well. The original starred Charles Bronson in the title role.
