THE ME­CHANIC

9PM, 9GO! MA. 2011. This ac­tion-thriller fol­lows the story of an elite hit man (Ja­son Statham) as he teaches his trade to an ex-con al­co­holic ap­pren­tice in prepa­ra­tion for a re­venge job. Statham is a model of con­trol in this film — he’s steely and grace­ful in his ac­tion scenes and his in­ter­play with the wiry Ben Fos­ter de­liv­ers the goods.

NEW IN TOWN

9.30PM, 7FLIX PG. 2009. A high-pow­ered ex­ec­u­tive takes on an as­sign­ment to re­struc­ture a lo­cal fac­tory si­t­u­ated in the mid­dle of nowhere and he ends up fall­ing for the town’s charm. A fluffy and pre­dictable rom-com star­ring Renée Zell­weger and Harry Con­nick Jnr.

IN THE HOUSE

1.25AM, SBS2 MA. 2012. Dark, tense, and wryly funny, In the House is bril­liantly di­rected by François Ozon and fea­tures fine per­for­mances from its tal­ented cast, which in­cludes Kristin Scott Thomas and Bastien Ughetto. Def­i­nitely a good choice for your Mon­day.

Ja­son Statham.
