Mechanic: Resurrection

Some lovely locations for this action outing from Statham. A generic blackmail plot with a loose hook and stereotypically ineffective goons opens the movie to leave the bad guy pulling the strings and send Statham on three kill missions or his new girlfriend dies. Given he had never seen her before, he’s suddenly ‘in love’ with her and becomes the noble hero. Cue a series of generic, if briefly innovative, sequences which (sadly) are prefaced with voiceovers along the lines of “this is the hardest place you can get into, ever.” This formula has been implemented much more effectively in other movies, and better suits a single mission which we can introduce more twists and turns, get more involved with the protagonists and learn to hate the antagonist. Sadly by trying to be three missions in one, we get a pedestrian movie that rushes from sequence to sequence because it seems like we have to just get through it all for the finale. Which is also generic. Meh.
