#13 The Mechanic (2011)


Went in thinking it would be Transporter 4, but got more stuff in between the explosions. Great action when it did happen and more graphic kills than the audience was expecting.

#9 The American (2010)


Slow movie about an assassin/custom arms maker in Italy doing his last job. Some won't like it because it isn't action packed, but it was a nice change of pace from the usual.
