Someone has to fix the problems.
Arthur Bishop is a 'mechanic' - an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It's a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business. But when he is ordered to take out his mentor and close friend Harry, Bishop is anything but detached.

A typical, but decent film added to Jason Statham's resume. While it's a remake of a movie I've never seen, I believe this film fits well with Statham, who made it his own. Personally looking forward to seeing the sequel, as he hasn't really made a movie featuring himself as a main character in a good while. No, he's not exactly Oscar material, but he's fun and apparently never ages.

Another Statham twist on the same genre. He continues to play the same role and continues to deliver awesome movies. Great action scenes with a riveting story. I thought Foster was very good in a different role for him. Worth the watch as a Statham fan!
