"Murder is only killing without a license."

The Mechanic can best be described as an investigative character study of a "mechanic" (or hitman, as they're more commonly called). This second creative collaboration of Charles Bronson and director Michael Winner is a tense 1970s action-thriller that excites with tenacious stunt-work and engrosses with a restrained screenplay.

"14.1, PC Charles Bronson alkaa opettaa listimisen saloja nuoremmalle klopille. Tarina itsessään on liian kuivaa seurattavaa ja loppu melko laimea, mutta dialogi on mielenkiintoista seurattavaa paikka paikoin.

"First viewing - Sept. 7th The Mechanic routinely earns praise from directors I admire, so when I found it on Showbox I settled in to see what it was like. Overall I enjoyed it, but mainly because the back half of the film is so strongly composed that it makes you somewhat forgive the flaws of the first half. I had to fight a little to stay awake during the first hour of the film in places as not much happens and the initial interactions between Bronson & Vincent fall flat at times. I couldn't h"
