This remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson action thriller The Mechanic
stars Jason Statham
as professional hit man Arthur Bishop, who has a strict code about cleanly eliminating targets. When his best friend and mentor, Harry (Donald Sutherland), is murdered, Arthur takes on Harry's son, Steve (Ben Foster
), who wants to learn the hit man ropes in order to seek revenge on those responsible. The two look like the scariest duo since Starsky and Hutch, but things get complicated when the younger student starts to upstage the master.
Sony is tooling with the idea of releasing The Mechanic on DVD and Blu-ray on May 17. Bonus features include deleted scenes and the featurette "Tools of the Trade: Inside the Action."
