  2. Olivia Reneé Saldívar's rating of the film The Mechanic

    Essentially a film about the highs and lows of contemporary 70's shag decor. I oogled fringe chain lamps and kitchens designed entirely out of glazed amber Mexican tile. Hieronymus Bosch triptych ftw~!

  4. film_lies101's rating of the film The Mechanic

    Great opening and ending, some of the middle gets bogged down by unnecessary scenes, the suicidal girlfriend to name one

  5. Matt Rolls's rating of the film The Mechanic

  6. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Mechanic

    Undervalued movie. Though a great movie. Charles Bronson as such is underevaluated, too. Though an excellent actor. The pity is, he is squeezed pretty often into the same "character". Not talking too much, but confident; slow to anger, but brutally efficient when fighting back. This is Charles Bronson more or less in all his movies. And I love him for this. I always liked his "characters"; I wonder, if it was him....

  7. Nick Schwab's rating of the film The Mechanic

    Economical in narrative and with many moments of quiet for literary characterization, never moving the plot along sans story. The hitmen characters have this detached emotional feel (like I expect mafia hitmen to be), which gives the film both a realistic touch and a cynical tone that makes it a bleak and effective downer. Despite the exceptional story, both the action and ugly photography feels pedestrian, though.

  8. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film The Mechanic

    Lo mejor de la película se resume en la presentación del protagonista en una secuencia inicial basada estrictamente en acciones, sin diálogo alguno...muy en la línea de El Samurai del gran Jean Pierre Melville.

  9. JustinCapeTown's rating of the film The Mechanic

    I just love these 70's crime films. Wonder if they are going to do a shitty remake....oh wait....

  10. Jake Mulligan's rating of the film The Mechanic

    fun grindhouse picture with grand aspirations. great ending.

  11. Scott Barbella-Landy's rating of the film The Mechanic

    This... is supposed to be Death Wish, right? Who screwed up the entry?

  12. Justin Vicari's rating of the film The Mechanic

    A hugely misanthropic, cold-blooded film, and way beyond bromantic - in its sharklike, lipsmacking decadence, this is virtually gay, with Charles Bronson and Jan Michael-Vincent as Verlaine and Rimbaud composing assassinations instead of poems. It's a wallop.

  13. Damian's rating of the film The Mechanic

    Amazing 70s action extravaganza.

  14. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Mechanic

    Superior Charles Bronson action-thriller skillfully directed by Michael Winner. In addition to the finely-crafted action scenes, it also works as a compelling character study and a darkly comic buddy movie. Great score by Jerry Fielding. One of the best of its kind.
