Jason Statham Interview THE MECHANIC; Plus Updates on CRANK 3 and THE EXPENDABLES 2


If you’re a fan of Jason Statham action films, you’ll be happy to know his latest movie, a remake ofThe Mechanic, opens this weekend.  Like the 1972 Charles Bronson film that it’s based on, Statham plays a ‘mechanic’, which is "an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets."   Unlike some remakes that stray far from the original, Statham’s remake uses the same plot, but updates all the technology and kills.  Also, Simon West directed (Con AirLara Croft: Tomb Raider) the film so the action is well done.  I actually thought the remake was a lot of fun and casting Ben Foster to play the apprentice was a smart move as he’s a very talented actor that brings a lot to the role.  For more on the film, watch 4 clips here. Read More...
