The Mechanik (2005)

The Mechanik is a 2005 action-thriller that was the second movie directed by Dolph Lundgren, who stars in the film as Nikolai Cherenko, a veteran Spetsnaz operator who is tasked to rescue a captured American woman from a Russian mobster. He accepts the job only because the kidnapper is also the killer of his wife and son. The film, which was the first for Lundgren to be credited as a screenwriter, was released directly to DVD in the United States under the title The Russian Specialist (not be confused with Charles Bronson's The Mechanic or with its 2011 remake starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster).

The following weapons can be seen in the film The Mechanik:


Beretta 92FS

After his first visit to the strip club, Nikolai Cherenko (Dolph Lundgren) takes a Beretta 92FS from a guard and then uses it in the first part of the movie. Other Berettas are also used by various thugs, and by Yuri (Assen Blatechki), Cherenko's partner.
