Consider the following sequence of events:
- The Transporter series started getting stale.
- Simon West chanced to stay awake for 30 minutes of The American
- West saw the original Charles Bronson' Mechanic in its entirety.
The result is Jason Statham being cast as Arthur Bishop in the remake of the Bronson flick with the solitary nature of the lead character from The American thrown in. The film actually feels like the Transporter with its usual action sequences and Rajini like moves. Except that the Transporter is now an Assassin who has a protege. Need anything more needs be said about this film?
