Will The Mechanic Be Any Good?

Jason Statham has yet another generic action movie coming to theaters soon, this one titled The Mechanic. The good thing about generic Jason Statham action movies: they’re often better than most generic action movies. In fact, the guy should have a sub-genre named after him as Statham has found some success doing frenetic, plot-free action films.

Will I go see The Mechanic in theaters? Probably not.

Then again, there are not a lot of choices in theaters right now. At the very least, it’ll be on DVD in a couple months and I’ll watch it then.

The movie looks like mindless fun, even if it looks suspiciously similar to The Transporter movies in terms of style and plot.

What do you think? Will The Mechanic be any good? Will you go and see it in theaters?
