Directed by
Simon West

Jason Statham stars in director Simon West's action retread of Michael Winner's 1972 revenge thriller.

Arthur Bishop earns his living as a 'mechanic', a euphemism for hitman that alludes to the precision and emotional detachment with which he goes about his business. And that even applies when he's contracted to kill his wheelchair-using mentor Harry McKenna, though he does at least demand to know why he should send his friend to an early grave.

Things then get awkward for Bishop, when McKenna's son Steve asks if he'll tutor him. Their partnership develops in fits and starts, but Bishop's boss Dean Sanderson makes it clear he's not happy with the nascent partnership's latest assassination.

So, with all the main players inherently suspicious, trained killers, and various motives for murder in the air, it won't take much to spark bloodshed - and that catalyst comes with an unexpected sighting at an airport.
