After escaping a murder plot, Bishop has been laying low on boat in Brazil. All seems well until he is approached while eating. And old colleague, Crane, wants him to kill 3 targets and make it look like an accident or they will expose Bishop. Bishop refuses … in his own way and hides in Thailand.  There he meets Gina, who Bishop discovers she was hired by Crane to trick him into falling in love with her. Gina is running a school for victims of human trafficking. If she doesn’t set up Bishop, Crane will kill all of her students. Bishop decides to save Gina and kill Crane. But Crane kidnaps Gina first and tells Bishop that he must complete the 3 “accidental” kill or Gina dies. After each kill, Bishop will be given 1 video call with Gina to confirm she is still alive and the next target.  After the last kill, Bishop will be given the coordinates to her location. 4 continents, 3 kills, 2 lovers, and 1 crazy plot. If anyone can get it done, it’s Bishop.

Well, the one thing the 1st Mechanic was missing is a good old fashion love interest (insert sarcastic eye roll here) (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). It’s understood that this was done to attract more female viewers, but its goes against the original loner we liked in the first movie. It would have been better to tell a similar plot with slight differences (i.e. Hangover Part 2 or Home Alone 2: Lost in New York) then force this plot (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). Although Gina isn’t a damsel in distress … all the time … when she fights, it only makes things worse. The saving grace of this movie is you see how Bishop lays out his complicated, albeit gruesome, plans. The fight scenes were good but nothing new. Wait for Redbox.

I give this 2.5 out of 5 stars

The only thing you got right is my name – Gina
