Some people may deride Jason Statham as an actor (and those people have never watched him in Spy clearly), but the truth is, his movies are still incredibly entertaining. After all, they are as close to pure testosterone as you can get and an absolute thrill ride from start to finish. His movies, more importantly, also tend to make money – and so that is why he continues to be the star of big action pictures.
And his next big action movie due for release soon in South Africa, is the follow up to Simon West’s 2011 action thriller The Mechanic. The first film was an absolute wild ride and so far, what we’ve seen of the sequel, The Mechanic: Resurrection looks to only up the ante further. The first film was a remake of a Charles Bronson classic, but I think its fair to say that Statham has made the character of Arthur Bishop his own and provides a lot more high adrenaline action to go along with his more suave personality (Yes, Statham does have a personality – even if it consists only of different degrees of violence and aggression). Joining Statham this time around is Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones, and Michelle Yeoh. Summit Entertainment has released two new action-packed TV spots and a clip from the film in which Bishop shows his distrust for his new friends.
So prepare to get your weekly fix of testosterone in the below clips:
The full synopsis is below:
Arthur Bishop returns as the Mechanic in the sequel to the 2011 action thriller. When the deceitful actions of a cunning but beautiful woman [Jessica Alba] force him to return to the life he left behind, Bishop’s life is once again in danger as he has to complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world.
