Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The remake of The Mechanic was a pretty good film, updating the Bronson classic with, I guess, a modern day Bronson in Jason Statham. This sequel pretty much abandons all that to churn out a highly generic by the numbers action film that most forgets about the action and instead allows you to enjoy what is more or less a travelogue for Statham and his pals. It’s pretty boring stuff with a few highlights, including Tommy Lee Jones in full “take the money and run” mode.
