The villain in this gets a lot of bad mouthing.
Like in the REEL ACTION thing (link above) he is listed as a weak point.
Why all the hate? I fucking love that guy!
He looks sleazy and evil and he sounds REALLY sleazy and evil. Very nicely acted I think.
Maybe a well known actor would have been nice but this guy fits the film perfectly.

The Mechanik is still one of my favourite Dolph-films ever.

This movie is by far one of Dolph's best movie ever made, i was suprised how good the actors were in this movie playing their part, especially the main bad guy who got what he deserved in the end, this is still Dolph's best directed movie in my opinion and hopefully he will direct more movies even better.

In France, it's blocked. Those free movies posted online by companies are usually only limited the US and neighboring countries.

I like Dolph direction, but i must be fair that all of his directed movies has many boring moments. I hope this will change, but anyawy boring or not it's better to have him on director's chair than to play in movies like Sweepes, Bridge of Dragons, Agent Red, Detention, Direct Action, Direct Contact, Diamond Dogs - this is pure crap that shouldn't be ever made and i refuse to have them in my collection - so bad to see him so great looking young action guy back in late 90's early 2000's doing all those B to C grade movies.
The future it's bright for sure since 2009!
