    Plot Outline:

    Follows an elite hit man as he teaches his trade to an apprentice who has a connection to one of his previous victims.

    Plot: Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) is a 'mechanic' – an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It's a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business. But when his mentor and close friend Harry (Donald Sutherland) is murdered, Bishop is anything but detached. His next assignment is self-imposed – he wants those responsible dead. His mission grows complicated when Harry's son Steve (Ben Foster) approaches him with the same vengeful goal and a determination to learn Bishop's trade. Bishop has always acted alone but he can't turn his back on Harry's son. A methodical hit man takes an impulsive student deep into his world and a deadly partnership is born. But while in pursuit of their ultimate mark, deceptions threaten to surface and those hired to fix problems become problems themselves.

    Movie Quotes:

    Emma: You look like a pumpkin, bitch!

    Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Revealing mistakes: When Adam (Ashton Kutcher) is talking on the phone trying to find a girl to have sex with, you can see on his iPhone that it is not really on a call. You are able to see buttons that do not appear while talking on the phone.

    Trivia: There are 2 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • The original title for the script was 'Fuck Buddies' but this wouldn't make it past the MPAA. It was changed to 'Friends with Benefits' but then that title was changed because there was another movie with the same title starring Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake.
    • Pre-screening invitations had the movie titled as No Strings Attached or Hooking Up.
