I have a confession.
I'll pretty much watch any film that Jason Statham makes. He was great in Snatch, as the low-key, wise-ass thief/scam artist/boxing promoter. But once he started showing off his martial arts skills in action films I was hooked. Those Transporter movies? Loved them! The Crank series? Good God, they were awful...but I loved them! And now he has remade one of my all-time favorite films from the 1970's. The old Chuck Bronson assassin film, The Mechanic. And it also stars Ben Foster, and he always seem to do a competent to brilliant job.
So yeah...I'll be seeing this one. Oh yeah.
