The Mechanic (2011)

A cool, hard, splatter, no-brainer movie for a lazy Sunday afternoon…

Shots, shots and shots… and no police, never, ever.

… the Killer (Jason Statham) is also an audiophile… tubes amp, turntable and get angry when the Apprentice (Ben Foster) touches the platter… more footage of SME arm and a red cartridge appears on and on… and the nylon anti skating wire becomes the device activating a bomb… clever, but politically (audiophile-wise) incorrect:-)

The chair of choice of the Killer in his audio room?

Eames' Lounge Chair and Ottoman, of course.

… a pleasant action movie… the OST by Mark Isham is also first class…

Enjoyed it.
