Gansel becomes another international director who sells his soul to the action franchise world with this lame Jason Statham vehicle. 'Mechanic: Resurrection' stands as a sequel that no one was clamoring for and winds up a pretty lame duck. The pool sequence is impressive but hey we saw that in the trailer.
Even though story is discounted for action in this follow-up it is still a very engaging film that keeps the action coming and Jason Statham's badassery knows no bounds. Jessica Alba and Tommy Lee Jones also offer up some interesting supporting roles too. It's not life changing but it is damn entertaining.
