Simon West’s “The Mechanic” @ In Review Online

 

 

Simon West is one of the newer studio-ready action directors – all sepia tones and intensified continuity, compounded with a tendency toward the occasional bit of unintentional schlock. Unfortunately, it’s also him behind this new remake of Winner’s gritty little seventies number “The Mechanic,” and the results – while not entirely barren – don’t really leave much to gander at, and very little of what is good about it can be attributed to West, himself. You can read my review of it here.
