There are no new ideas in Hollywood it seems... Now they are remaking/rebooting/updating the Charles Bronson/Jan Michael Vincent movie, The Mechanic. Now we get Jason Statham as the grizzled assassin formerly played by Chuck Bronson.
I always found the original pretty slow. I do remember the fight scene I linked above. The opening is pretty legendary too.
But, somewhat perversely, my favorite Bronson movie is Red Sun! I wish all fights were as easy as movie fights.
