The Mechanic hums along like a well oiled machine. Jason Statham once again shines as the hit man who gets the job done and gets even with those who wrong him. A few nifty twists, some very cool action scenes, and a story that moves make this one of Statham's best movies to date. Kudos also to Ben Foster who takes what could be a stock character and turns him into someone more complex. This mechanic won't rip you off.
