As somebody who had not heard any of this before, it became a curious phenomenon to sit and watch a film and slowly have the realities begin to click into place.
This film is so real. It treats its characters with so much care and sensitivity.
A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.
This movie tries so hard to be funny, yet it falls flat every time. Just another example of recycled ideas repackaged with women in an attempt to appeal to a certain audience.
Jason Statham performs his usual, action packed, indestructible man who can do it all sequence, but the plot is terrible.
Jessica Alba is among the worst actresses out there, and this movie is a perfect example to prove it.
Action scenes are entertaining, but they can't make up for how silly and poor the story is.
Bishop (Jason Statham) is found retired in Rio and is requested by Crain (Sam Hazeldine) to kill three people or his cover will be blown. He manages to escape to a remote location in Thailand where he is quickly discovered with Jessica Alba, who was planted there by Crain...against her will. After a one night stand, Crain captures the two of them and "forces" Bishop to assassinate three people or Jessica gets it. With Alba being the best squeeze on the market, Bishop succumbs. The swimming pool murder scene was a little better than the first one.The film has some minor twists at the end, but nothing major, being closer to a Seagal film, than "The Usual Suspects." Other than a bikini, Alba didn't bring anything to the screen as most of the acting was bland. Even Tommy Lee Jones phoned it in. And where does Bishop get a water proof cell phone that works anywhere in the world, even on remote islands? Guide: F-word, brief sex. No nudity
This movie really is really awful. When it started in Brazil I thought great. Nice scenery. Lots of attractive men. I should have known when the location changed from Brazil to Thailand.I got as far as the first sex scene. Why use abused children as a plot contrivance while the lead is banging a woman who looks young enough to be his daughter. Really offensive.As it turns out Alba is 36 not 16 to his 50 but the dreadful image is still there.Doesn't Thailand have any normal women? Or attractive men?
I recently watched the first Jason statham mechanic film and I found it okay but now I have seen the sequel and this film make the first one look great because of how bad resurrection is. The premise of the film sees after somebody he cares about is kidnapped Arthur bishop is forced to go after three targets. As mentioned before Jason statham plays the lead in this film and you get what you expect, he is very brooding in this and plays the tough guy well, which helps sell him in the action scenes. However, I found his character to be way more interesting in the first film and I felt him to just be there with me not caring about him in this film. The supporting cast is big let down, Jessica alba plays his love interest in this film and she is simply eye candy not providing much more then that, it doesn't help that her and statham don't really have any chemistry together in this film. Tommy lee Jones has a small role in this film and if his role had been expanded it might have worked but he just wasn't given enough time to get his performance across. The villain is the ultimate cliché and feels like they didn't even care to try and think of a compelling villain for this film. The story is also as cliché as you can get, it feels pretty repetitive as statham goes for his targets and I just ended up not caring about anything story related in this film. The script has some pretty cheesy dialogue in it and all I'll say is that I didn't care about any of the drama and I never laughed so this script truly failed. The style of the film though was pretty cool, the action scenes were all filmed really well and it was fun to watch statham come up with these unique creative kills. Overall this is a bad film that hopefully ends this mechanic franchise.
