My first impression was that I would like “The Rite” better than “The Mechanic” however the reverse was actually the case. If you haven’t already read my review of “The Rite” check my gripes about it.

While “The Mechanic” is not a thinking man’s movie, it’s a mindless action flick that knows how to cater to its target audience. There are some entertaining fight sequences and a few great one-liners which is all you can really ask for from this type of film. My ...
