Synopsis Mechanic: Resurrection Movie
Mechanic: Resurrection tells the story of Arthur Bishop, whose peaceful life in Rio de Janeiro disturbed by a courier, Renee Tran, who delivers a message. His boss wants Bishop to carry out three assassination missions.
Bishop, who had left his past, pretended that Renee had the wrong person and managed to escape. Later, Bishop seeks shelter to meet his friend Mei, the owner of a resort in Thailand. Bishop finally learned that the people who met him in Brazil were Riah Crain’s messengers.
Riah Crain then set up the bait, using Gina Thornton, a child shelter owner in Cambodia, to force Bishop to work for him. Gina then confesses to Bishop and Mei that she was threatened by Crain’s people, who would kill her foster children if they didn’t obey them.
Although Bishop can sense Crain’s plans, a few days later he grows closer to Gina, and the two fall in love, according to Crain’s plan. Crain then sends his men to kidnap the two; Gina is held hostage until Bishop manages to complete his task, which involves three murders that appear to be accidents.
The first target is a warlord named Marlon Krill, who is locked up in a prison in Malaysia. The second target is Adrian Cook, a billionaire from Sydney who is a former human trafficking mafia member and underage sex worker.
While talking about the final target, Crain allows Bishop to talk to Gina, which allows him to track Crain’s whereabouts. However, Bishop failed when he tried to save Gina. Crain then forced him to complete the third target within 24 hours.
After that, Bishop realized that the third target was Crain’s rival in the arms trading business. He is Max Adams, a man from America who is now in Varna, Bulgaria.
Now Bishop devises a plan to expose Crain’s plan to Adams and asks for his help. He plans to fake Adams’ death and asks Crain to go to a submarine base to show him the evidence so Bishop can save Gina. Did Adams trust Bishop? Did Bishop manage to save Gina?
