Hearing that Jason Statham and Ben Foster will appear in an action movie side by side is enough for me, but what about critics? How will The Mechanic fare when it comes to movie reviews around the web?

Coming in third at the box office with an estimated $11.5 million, The Mechanic just couldn’t compete with that of The Rite or Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher’s No Strings Attached. Maybe the remake, from director Simon West, was after all just a “brutal splatter-fest that is worse than the 1972 original, according to the L.A. Times movie review.

And while I hate to say it, Foster and Statham’s on screen relationship, as a hit man and his apprentice, also took a hit when it came to opinions over at the Long Island Press. The duo just couldn’t pull it off on the big screen. Apparently the “dramatically distant” nature between the two co-stars “never allows quality emotional connections sufficient breathing space to kick in.”

Cinema Blend also rang in with only half way decent Mechanic movie reviews, giving the film three out of five stars. The remake, that previously starred Charles Bronson, in a nut shell, “won’t get better than average, you’ll get exactly average. The Mechanic is content to be good enough, and if you’re ok with good enough, Statham’s latest fits the bill.”

Not good at all. Did you catch West’s latest action picture this past weekend in theaters? If so let us know what you think? Are the critics wrong? Leave us your own personal Mechanic movie reviews below.
