"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.

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"
