Critic Reviews of "The Mechanic (2011)"TheWrapOctober 07, 2011
Statham, he of the chiseled physique and sexily receding hairline, holds his own here, doing what he has to in scenes and no more -- which is perfect for a movie like this.New York ObserverApril 04, 2011
The Mechanic is like a Beretta loaded with blanks -- quick and brutal but ultimately empty.NewsdayFebruary 19, 2011
Clinging to false heroism and terrified of anything too dark, The Mechanic is a tough-guy movie for wimps.New YorkerFebruary 07, 2011
Statham is a model of control; he's steely and graceful in his action scenes, and his interplay with the wiry Foster delivers the goods.Newark Star-LedgerJanuary 29, 2011
The new stunts are explosive, over-the-top and a sign of the times -- action fans aren't happy these days, it seems, unless at least one scene involves a jackknifing 18-wheeler and a fireball.NPRJanuary 28, 2011
Betrayal, sympathy and regret are central to the story, but there's hardly any room for such feelings amid the clockwork carnage.Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
A brainless and easily-forgettable thriller.Movie NationJanuary 23, 2013
Somewhat faithful to the original, but a stupendously violent fiasco that weasels its way into being unlikable.The AristocratSeptember 29, 2012
[Simon West] goes for headshots, stabbings and other dispatches that are the antithesis of modern PG-13 action filmmaking.Examiner.comSeptember 21, 2012
If you're looking for substance, character development, and an engaging storyline, you'll sadly be disappointed as this film is seriously lacking in all three of those areas.MediaMikesAugust 16, 2011
Statham has slowly become this generations' Bruce Willis, combining a quiet and sly screen persona with the ability to kick major ass when called uponThe StandardJuly 21, 2011
The Mechanic will be a decent time-killer for Statham fans, but it's another black mark against the name of director Simon West.
