The Mechanic (2011) BluRay 720p

Free Download Hollywood Movies -The Mechanic (2011) BluRay 720p American action thriller film directed by Simon West and written by Lewis John Carlino and Richard Wenk. Starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster, it is a remake of the 1972 film of the same name. Statham stars as Arthur Bishop, a professional assassin who specializes in making his hits look like accidents, suicides or the acts of petty criminals.

The Mechanic (CBS Films) makes you remember why movies like The Mechanic exist. On paper, the story sounds rote and overfamiliar: A world-class professional hitman teams up with a troubled youth to avenge the death of the young man’s father, who was also the hitman’s mentor in the art of elite assassination. In fact, the film is a remake of a 1972 thriller starring Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent. Yet this compact 90-minute fantasy of vigilante justice (written by Richard Wenk in collaboration with the writer of the original, Lewis John Carlino) feels fresh and satisfying.

Maybe it’s the presence of Jason Statham, the British action star who has a physicality like no other actor out there right now: His lean, athletic, almost balletic grace harks back to the heyday of Steve McQueen or Bruce Lee. Or maybe it’s The Mechanic’s focus—unusual for a film of its type—on a male-male relationship that’s more fraught than the usual pairing of two wisecracking buddies. Granted, this movie’s primary concern is devising ever more creative ways for one man to hurl another off a skyscraper or through a glass coffee table. But director Simon West ( Con Air—need I say more?) has a light touch and an economy of style that turns The Mechanic into a lean, mean ridiculousness machine.

Arthur Bishop (Statham), the bullet-headed, elegantly cashmere-clad figure at that machine’s helm, begins the movie as a hyper-competent and emotionally remote killer. We see him zipping around the globe in the employ of a shadow organization that targets arms dealers and other high-profile malfeasants. Arthur can drown a drug dealer in South America, escape the dealer’s heavily defended compound, and get back to New Orleans in time for drinks and sex with a compliant, supermodel-gorgeous call girl (Mini Anden). Then he retires to his glass-fronted Modernist house on a bayou, one of the movie’s many small triumphs of production design, to listen to Schubert on vinyl.
