Jason Statham (The Expendables series) "wastes no time delivering the bullet-spraying, jaw-smashing goods" (Variety) as Arthur Bishop, an assassin who makes each of his targets' deaths look like accidents, whose calm retirement is shattered when a former employer requires his services. A film by Dennis Gansel (The Wave), Mechanic: Resurrection also features Jessica Alba (Sin City), Academy Award® winner Tommy Lee Jones (Best Supporting Actor, The Fugitive, 1993), and Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).
Arthur Bishop (Statham) returns as the Mechanic in the sequel to the 2011 action-thriller. When the deceitful actions of a cunning but beautiful woman (Alba) force him to return to the life he left behind, Bishop's life is once again in danger as he has to complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world.
The home entertainment release of Mechanic: Resurrection includes five behind-the-scenes featurettes looking at the development of the sequel, scoring the film, a breakdown of the Malaysian prison break sequence, and in-depth interviews with Michelle Yeoh and Jason Statham.
