REVIEW: MECHANIC 2 - RESURRECTION


Storyline:
The most dangerous hitman in the world, Arthur Bishop thought he had put his murderous past behind him when his most formidable foe kidnaps the love of his life. Now he is forced to travel the globe to complete three impossible assassinations, and do what he does best, make them look like accidents.

Starring:
Jason Statham, Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones

Pros and Cons:
So, going into this movie, i was expecting a dumb action movie, but in hindsight, i was expecting "someone who has trouble reading" dumb, not "someone who is utterly lost without supervision" dumb.

To be clear, this movie is so cookie cutter bad that viewing it seriously will just make you sad. but the movie is great to watch with a few friends and riff on.

The whole plot is just so bland and far fetched, actions are sometimes so illogical and the movie doesn't even follow it's own rules (for instance, from the trailer we learn he has to assassinate a few people and make it look like an accident. yet one kill is very very clearly not an accident)

The CGI is so bad, i'm not sure if Worldwide FX is that bad of a studio or if they had to work with a very very limited budget, maybe both.

On a special note, The romance scene between JS&JA is really vulgar, as in, you feel uncomfortable watching and feel almost guilty.

Rating:
⭐️⭐️⭐️/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
