The Mechanic

The Mechanic

There are thousands of ways to kill a man ... just check his briefcase.
  • Saturday night fever.

A loose remake of the famous Charles Bronson film of 1972, The Mechanic is a guy who fixes things for powerful people, usually resulting in a dead body. After he is ordered to kill his mentor, he gets an unusual request from the man's son: he wants to learn the art of assassination. The boy does not know his new teacher offed his dad. Junior learns fast, but the bosses start to have doubts about the new team and decide they need to be eliminated. That's a big mistake for them of course. Expect plenty of high action and skiet, skop en donder.
