THE MECHANIC (Theatrical Release USA 1972)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

The Mechanic—
one of Charles Bronson’s best performances—gritty, intense adult film explores the world of professional assassins with stark, realistic, and shocking thoroughness. Bronson, as usual, delivers an outstanding performance that is well-supported by a terrific script and a perfect casting choice of Jan-Michael Vincent as the ultimate protagonist. Completely entertains and surprises at every level. Great work for Director Michael Winner.
