Box Office: 'Mechanic: Resurrection' Becomes Jason Statham's Biggest Solo Hit

'Mechanic: Resurrection' image courtesy of Summit

As I noted last week, we have seen a bunch of bombed in North America, but kicked butt overseas sequels and franchise entries this year. And one of those films was Mechanic: Resurrection. The Jason Statham sequel, which was a relatively rare bird in being a sequel to a remake, earned just $21.2 million since opening in late August. Even with the caveat that solo Statham projects dont usually generate huge domestic box office, thats not a significant sum.

But the good news is that the Millennium-produced release, which was distributed by Summit/Lionsgate in the States, earned a whopping $88.2 million-and-counting overseas. That includes a $44m running cume in China, giving the 2016 sequel to the 2011 remake a $109.4m worldwide total. That means that the film surpassed the $109m worldwide cume of The Transporter 3 back in 2008. That means that, so sayeth Box Office Mojo,Mechanic: Resurrection is Stathams biggest solo action hit ever.

In terms of hard global grosses, not accounting for inflation, deflation, or market exchange rates, it is the action stars seventh-biggest earner. But all six of the other films above it, eight if you include the animated Gnomeo and Juliet and his cameo in Collateral, are ensemble pictures or feature Statham in a supporting role. To wit, thats Furious 7 ($1.5 billion), The Expendables 2 ($305 million), The Expendables ($274m), Spy ($235m), Collateral ($217m), The Expendables 3 ($206m), Walt Disney'sGnomeo and Juliet ($194m) and The Italian Job ($176m).

The rest of the pack, namely Stathams many solo action vehicles, Guy Ritchie capers and related genre fare, all sit below the seemingly unasked-for sequel. While the film co-starred Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones and Michelle Yeoh, it was a Statham action-er all the way and was sold mostly on his cred. The film earned $88 million in overseas grosses. So, it not only out-grossedThe Mechanic ($76m) just in overseas grosses, it would sit just between Transporter 3 ($109m) and Transporter 2 ($85m worldwide, but his biggest domestic solo vehicle with $43m back in 2005) among the top Statham vehicles even if it had gone direct-to-DVD in North America.

I wondered a few times whether Stathams more high-profile supporting gigs in the Fast/Furious sequel and the Melissa McCarthy spy comedy would raise his profile and/or win him new fans. While Im not necessarily going to credit said A-level exposure for this foreign bounty, it certainly didnt hurt. It may not be a coincidence that his first solo action vehicle since said breakout turns became his biggest solo effort ever. And yeah, its another Hollywood release that earned over 80% of its money outside of North America.

Now the film cost around $40 million to produce, so it's not necessarily a mega blockbuster even as it may triple its budget. But this bodes well for Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc.s upcoming Jason Statham and Fan Bingbing versus a giant shark adventure Meg which opens on North American shores in March of 2018. Said Chinese co-production will be distributed in China by Gravity Pictures with WB handling the rest of the world.

Mechanic: Resurrection may have seemed liked an unasked-for sequel, but clearly someone out there wanted to see it. Now if those people could just catch up onSafe,The Bank Job, andHomefront, all will be right with the world. Statham will be seen next in Universal/Comcast Corp.'sFast 8in April of next year.



'Mechanic: Resurrection' Review: Jason Statham Fights Faceless Goons, Forgettably

In Mechanic: Resurrection Jason Statham plays a retired killer who spins records on a $10,000 turntable kept on his boat. Records. On a boat. He has his own batcave built into a shipping container, and identical getaway kits cases packed with cash, passports, gun stashed in different cities like videogame save points. His phone is a Nokia, and that detail alone reveals this guy sees the world through totally different eyes than you or I.

This is the sequel to Stathams 2011 vehicle The Mechanic, in which his character Arthur Bishop killed people by staging untraceable accidents. It was a loose remake of a Charles Bronson film, but dont worry: Even if you missed that movie, you wont fail to understand anything in this one.

This sequel carries forward only two ideas: that gimmick-y assassinations that look like accidents are a valid substitute for story, and that Statham can carry an action movie even when it is propped up on such wobbly legs. Despite boasting a few ingenious action beats, this film challenges both concepts.

Here, a shadowy character from Bishops past lures the reluctant killer back into action to take out three targets, each of which is ensconced in an impenetrable location like an island prison or an ultra-secure high-rise. The plotting would be great as a video game, but in a 100-minute movie theres barely time to construct each target as a diverting vignette, since time must also be allocated to setting up the reason Bishop plays along at all.

See Photo: 'Fast 8': First Look at Charlize Theron's Badass New Character

Mechanic-Resurrection_Statham_Yeoh.jpgThat reason is Gina (Jessica Alba), who is coerced into helping the villain. Coercion is the Big Bads thing, though hes got so many goons around, its difficult to understand why he bothers with elaborate plots of blackmail and persuasion. Anyway, Albas character was a soldier at one point, not that youd ever guess that if you slipped away for more popcorn during the one scene where she mentions it.

Director Dennis Gansel applies the same detached, ruthless efficiency employed by the assassin Bishop, in every aspect of his film. In action scenes that makes sense; while much of the fighting goes by too fast to truly appreciate the stunt work, Statham and the stunt team appears to be right in their element bashing each other around every ten minutes.

A few scenes are dressed up with memorably practical, if unusual combos. Say youve got a hot tub, a grenade, and a bad guy. What to do? Grenade goes in the hot tub, guy goes in the water, and boom: a variation on the hot ham water recipe from Arrested Development. Nothing is considered in any depth; the action is all of the moment rather than a string of tumbling consequences, so when Bishop slides down a building after dispatching a bad guy, its no surprise that news camera footage shows the baddies death, but doesnt seem to see Statham at all.

Despite ostensibly globe-trotting from Rio to Bangkok to Sydney, few locations are memorable. Theres no flavor, no vibe, but frequent comped-in digital backgrounds. An opening Rio sequence is gauzy and too bright, often appearing to take place entirely on a soundstage rather than on an expensive restaurant terrace or near movie-pretty Guanbara Bay. (Bad timing on that front: thanks to the Rio Olympics, theres no way to con an opening weekend audience into thinking the bay is clean, much less inviting.)

But cheap can be OK, especially in the context of a down-the-middle B picture like Mechanic: Resurrection. Statham works to put a bit of emotional muscle into the drama, but its like playing air guitar hes emoting notes that arent there.

Had even a flash of ingenuity been applied to character or scenario, this sequel might be a very different film. Alas, casting and directorial choices appear to have been made to suppress personality rather than enhance it. Resurrection is bland and generic, as if the colorful heroes were cut away from some of Marvels cheapest setpieces.

While Alba approaches co-lead status at times, Resurrection typically uses her character as a trope in so many ways its almost impressive. Shes a distraction, bait, an object, a nonsense love interest, and a damsel in distress. If checking off that list completed your Action Movie Lady bingo card, dont call out just yet; the only prize is a copy of this movie.

Michelle Yeoh is on hand, but her major role is lady who looks concerned. Not to take anything away from Yeohs dramatic chops, but if Michelle Yeoh is in an action movie and doesnt punch anyone, something is wrong. She doesnt punch anyone in this movie.

Then theres Tommy Lee Jones. With close-cropped hair and a soul patch, wearing round-lensed rose sunglasses and aging rocker fashion, Joness entire getup might be a low-key joke about Sting. With all of about five minutes of screen time, the actors per-minute rate must rival the years top earners. Hes worth it those minutes are among the films most lively but even flashy, grumpy Jones cant act like a defibrillator powerful enough to crank this generic movie into competition for Stathams better solo outings.


13 Shows to Binge-Watch Before Labor Day: 'Stranger Things,' 'Halt and Catch Fire,' 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' (Photos)

  • Stranger Things Winona Ryder Season 1

    "Stranger Things" (Season 1 on Netflix)
    There's no reason to not have watched this '80s horror-adventure pastiche, unless you've been in the upside-down. (You'll get the reference when you watch.) It's only eight episodes, and "Stranger Things" has the best kid cast we've seen in years -- plus Winona Ryder.

    Netflix
  • narcos

    "Narcos" (Season 1 on Netflix)
    Most people know the Pablo Escobar story, but the 10-episode first season on Netflix is unmissable. Wagner Moura scored a Golden Globe for his performance as Escobar, and for those missing the Red Viper from "Game of Thrones," Pedro Pascal is here for your viewing pleasure. Season 2 drops Sept. 2.

    Netflix
  • "Casual" (Seasons 1-2 on Hulu)
    The Season 2 finale of Hulu's dark (like, really dark), spiky family comedy dropped on Tuesday, meaning all 23 episodes are there for you to laugh and cry to. Which is particularly good for the misanthropes among us.

    Hulu
  • "Halt and Catch Fire" (Seasons 1 & 2 on Netflix, 3 airing now on AMC)
    If you're really in a rush to catch up with the new season, which premiered Aug. 23, you can skip the first and just watch the 10-episode second installment, but season 1 is hardly devoid of worth. Lee Pace, Mackenzie Davis, Kerry Bishe and Scoot McNairy are as compelling as the '80s tech world their characters inhabit.

    Netflix
  • Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

    "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" (Season 1 on Netflix)
    There's still eight weeks left until the return of The CW's sharp musical comedy starring Rachel Bloom, so why not catch up on Netflix and support linear TV when it comes back? Guaranteed earworms include "Sexy Getting Ready Song" and "JAP Battle."

    Netflix
  • Wet Hot American Summer

    "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp" (Season 1 on Netflix)
    We're not sure about another season, but what better way to say farewell to summer than with saying hello to Amy Poehler, Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper and Chris Meloni 15 years after we said goodbye to them in the "Wet Hot American Summer" movie?

    Netfix
  • Black Mirror

    "Black Mirror" (Seasons 1 & 2 on Netflix)
    Tired of hearing "Oh my God, that's just like an episode of 'Black Mirror,' I can't believe it" and not knowing what that means? Enter creator Charlie Brooker's dystopic anthology world for six episodes and a Christmas special that features Jon Hamm. Season 3 drops on Netflix on Oct. 21.

    Netflix
  • The Americans

    "The Americans" (Seasons 1-3 on Amazon, Season 4 on FX.com)
    FX's Cold War spy drama finally earned a bunch of Emmy nominations this year for its recently concluded fourth season, but that doesn't mean the previous seasons of "Matthew Rhys and Keri Russellare any less thrilling.

    FX
  • "Lucifer" (Season 1 on Hulu)
    Sometimes you just want a good old-fashioned "He's a/she's a" crime-solving show, wherein one protagonist has some sort of special ability (in this case, being the actual devil), and the other is a cop, and they team up and solve crimes. Because it's a crime show, you don't have to watch every episode, but a few of these make for an enjoyable, British-accent-filled afternoon, courtesy of star Tom Ellis.

    Hulu
  • the fall netflix bbc weekend binge watch

    "The Fall" (Seasons 1 & 2 on Netflix)
    The third and final season of this skin-crawler premieres this fall, giving you plenty of time to get through the 11 episodes that constitute the first two. Pros include Gillian Anderson as an icily competent detective and Jamie Dornan as a dad. The big con is, Jamie Dornan's character is a serial killer who targets women. Look, life is full of trade-offs.

    Netlfix
  • HBO

    "Deadwood" (Seasons 1 & 3 on Amazon, HBO Go/Now)
    Yes, David Milch's period Western went to that great big sceen in the sky a decade ago. All the more reason to finally check out one of the most powerhouse casts ever assembled (Ian McShane and Timothy Olyphant are just the tip of the iceberg) delivering some of the most beautiful dialogue ever uttered. It's 36 episodes long, and there's a bit of meandering in the third season, but your brain will thank you.

    HBO
  • Southland Ben McKenzie Michael Cudlitz

    "Southland" (Seasons 1-5 on Hulu)
    Another throwback, but a worthwhile one. See Ben McKenzie ("Gotham"), Regina King ("American Crime," "The Leftovers") and Michael Cudlitz ("The Walking Dead") struggle as L.A. cops in one of the more nuanced police dramas to have existed.

Storyline

Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) is a 'mechanic' - an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It's a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business. But when his mentor and close friend Harry (Donald Sutherland) is murdered, Bishop is anything but detached. His next assignment is self-imposed - he wants those responsible dead. His mission grows complicated when Harry's son Steve (Ben Foster) approaches him with the same vengeful goal and a determination to learn Bishop's trade. Bishop has always acted alone but he can't turn his back on Harry's son. A methodical hit man takes an impulsive student deep into his world and a deadly partnership is born. But while in pursuit of their ultimate mark, deceptions threaten to surface and those hired to fix problems become problems themselves. Written by Anonymous

[first lines]
Arthur Bishop: What I do requires a certain mindset. I do assignments; designated targets. Some jobs need to look like accidents. Others must cast suspicion on someone else. A select few need to send a clear message. Pulling a trigger is easy. The best jobs are the ones nobody even knows you were there.
