The Mechanic is the 2011 remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson thriller. The film stars Jason Statham and Ben Foster and was directed by Simon West (Con Air). This film would be followed by the 2016 sequel Mechanic: Resurrection.
The following weapons were used in the film The Mechanic:
Custom Engraved Nickel M1911A1
A nickel plated M1911A1 is first used by Harry McKenna (Donald Sutherland). It is later used by his son Steve McKenna (Ben Foster). The gun has a Latin phrase, "Amat Victoria Curam", engraved on one side of the slide and its translation on the other. The translation is "Victory Loves Preparation". It is also supposed to be 30 years old. Close-ups of the gun reveal that the movie's armorer provided at least two different 1911s to represent the same gun; the first (seen in the third screencap) is built upon an Auto Ordnance frame, while the second (seen in the last screencap) is built upon an original U.S. Army-issue 1911A1 frame.
