Could this finally be the year that Jason Statham gets his first Oscar nomination? If the trailer for The Mechanic is any indication, no. However, he should definitely be nominated for “The Actor Most Likely to Give You a Non-Homosexual Man-Crush Boner” award. There is such a thing as a non-homosexual man-crush boner, right? And they do give awards for them, right?
In the film, Statham plays a mechanic, but not the kind of mechanic that fixes cars and stuff. He’s the kind that fixes people’s heads…with bullets. Wait a minute, that’s not a mechanic at all. What an irresponsible title!
