Do it again, harder!

I am not a fan of remakes. Seriously, it's gotten silly. When I heard that the "classic" Charles Bronson, Jan-Michael Vincent movie The Mechanic was being remade, my response was pretty much a shrug. Even when I heard Jason Statham was going to be in it, I still wasn't all that enthusiastic. But then I saw the trailer and it looks...badass.

Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood has the most recent trailer at her site. You can see it here.


  1. I'm a fan of the original and I gotta say this looks damn good.

    Thanks for posting.

  2. Jeez, if you bet me that the teenage son from Barry Sonnenfeld's "Big Trouble" would grow up to be truly a bad ass, I would surely be broke.

  3. You know, the novel BIG TROUBLE is actually hilarious. I'm not sure what went wrong in the adaptation but it was painful. And sorry, but I won't be watching anyone but Jason. He just pulls focus.
