The Mechanic Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Mechanic rolls onto Blu-ray with a near reference-quality 1080p Blu-ray transfer. Only a few bouts of softness are all that mars this otherwise pristine image. Fine detail is spectacular, evidenced right away in the Colombian compound where even the smallest of textures -- scuffed and cracked tile, the intricacies of a statue -- are revealed with lifelike accuracy. This Colombian opening features a heavily tinted color scheme where contrast has been boosted to off-the-charts levels, giving everything a blazing golden hue. The color palette settles down into a warm, but certainly not wholly unnatural, appearance as the film moves along, but fine details remain extremely strong. Both Statham and Foster wear plenty of scruffy facial hair that's very roughly and naturally textured on-screen. Clothing, facial pores, and other standrad elements are also very strongly detailed. Blacks are spectacular and flesh tones are only as warm as the rest of the image. The Mechanic is covered in a very fine but handsome layer of grain gives the movie a complete feel and a strong cinematic texture. The image is abundantly crisp and sharp, and it's free of any kind of physical or digital artifacts. Sony's done another high-class job on this Blu-ray release.


The Mechanic Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Mechanic features an expectedly powerful DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Music is exceptionally delivered, playing with a big and wide cinematic flair. A potent and authoritative low end, a strong midrange, and crisply accurate highs are the norm. Music enjoys not only a spacious front-channel delivery, but a healthy surround support structure. Background ambience is pleasantly natural at all volumes, whether the light sounds of a busy restaurant in chapter two or heavier, more robust elements at other junctures, particularly as heard during various action scenes. Speaking of, gunfire is crisp, heavy, and fast but not excessively loud, and explosions are tight and powerful without sounding artificially over-pumped for the sake of working the subwoofer harder than is necessary. Rounded out by expectedly clear and satisfying dialogue reproduction, The Mechanic makes for another first-class Action movie audio presentation from Sony.

Jason Statham is a pure badass, and thankfully he knows it. You won't see him pulling a Tooth Fairy or a Jingle All the Way; nope, he knows who he is and not even an Allstate Insurance homage can water down the intensity that is Stathum.
