Jason Statham is back my friends! Back as........ The Mechanic!
That's right, the sequel no one asked for is here, and its called Mechanic: Resurrection! The new film sees Statham's character Author Bishop return to his ass-kicking ways! Now don't get me wrong I really enjoyed the first film but that was mostly because of actor Ben Foster's presence in the first Mechanic. Foster's the kind of guy who elevates every film he's in no matter what his role is, but sadly his character is not back for the second round. However the sequel does give us the always beautiful Jessica Alba as the love interest and the legend Tommy Lee Jones in what appears to be a villain role, in which he is channeling the classic baddie he played in the Steven Seagal classic Under Siege.
Check out the fun action packed trailer below and get ready to check out a cool 80/90s throwback action thriller later this summer! Sound off in the comments section with your thoughts on the upcoming film, thanks for stopping by.
Here's the official synopsis:
"Arthur Bishop [Jason Statham] 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."
Mechanic: Resurrection is set hit theaters on August 26th.
