Directed by Simon West, the 2011 film is a remake of the 1972 classic starring Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent.

Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) is a hit man. In his box are the tools of his trade. He has more than a dozen ways of getting the job done, and they all work. That's why they call him 'The Mechanic'. Bishop specializes in making his hits seem like accidents, suicides, or petty crimes-gone wrong.

But when 'the powers that be' order Bishop to murder his friend and mentor, Harry (Donald Sutherland), he rebels against all he knows, and this clean, perfect killing machine, takes finding those responsible and making them pay very personal.

To add a twist to the tale Harry's son Steve (Ben Foster) asks Bishop to take him on as a trainee. Forever the lone wolf, Bishop now has to teach Steve all he needs to get the job done and stay alive to enjoy their revenge...
