British actor-Jason Statham is just not a great talent, even though many of the movies he has starred in fall short of his excellence, his unique individual brilliance has kept his contemporary action hero brand well in-tact.
Statham is like the Bruce Lee of guns and kicks: his speed, intelligence and strong ability to improvise never leave him pathetically vulnerable in the hands or camp of his enemies. Once again, he proves in ‘Mechanic: Resurrection’, a far better movie than its prequel-Mechanic, that he’s indeed the skilled killer.
‘Mechanic: Resurrection’ seals the disappointing holes of its antecedent but its storyline is still not super fascinating—it’s too direct and makes little use of the elements of suspense and surprise.
Nevertheless, the action is thrilling, brutal and flawlessly presented.
