Watch full mechanic resurrection 2016 movie online. Arthur Bishop thought he had put his murderous past behind him when his most formidable foe kidnaps the love of his life. Now he is forced to travel the globe to complete three impossible assassinations, and do what he does best, make them look like accidents.
So you remember The Mechanic right? Jason Statham’s 2011 remake of the 1970’s Charles Bronson thriller? No? Here’s a funny story – nobody else does either. Of all the recent new beginnings of stalled movie franchises, this has to be the most baffling. Did anyone even watch The Mechanic in the first place? You know what you’re getting with The Stath but even for his enjoyably thick-headed talents, it was lower tier action fodder, mainly because it was just so chronically dull from the outset. Mechanic Resurrection, it’s long unanticipated sequel, threatens to go the same way with a plodding, listless opening half an hour which attempts to lend some emotion and import to the life of supposed dead, cool as ice mercenary assassin Arthur Bishop – basically the same character as Statham’s Frank Martin in The Transporter franchise, only lacking any of the Eurocentric dry humour that made the first of those films relatively enjoyable. Bishop is ‘the best’, who lives under a false name in exile in Rio trying to live a normal life, until his past follows him and drags him back in. It’s as cliched as it is tired, and were it not Statham undertaking the most hilariously old school Bondian stunt in the opening few minutes, you’d be forgiven for switching this nonsense off. Yet this sequel has something, a small something, that keeps the gears shifting.
Dennis Gansel’s movie wants to be James Bond for a start, and the script is structured like a combination of a pre-post modern Bond movie spliced with the Hitman video games (indeed this is probably a better Hitman film than both of the Hitman films). That opening scene is Gansel suggesting we shouldn’t take this too seriously… at which point the script spends half hour taking itself seriously, wasting Michelle Yeoh in a role anyone could have played, and trying to make you care about Statham’s relationship with blackmailed Jessica Alba, who in one of those hilarious moments of movie casting plays an aid worker caring for Cambodian children. That’s Jessica Alba, people. Stopped laughing yet? Okay then.
