Everything Jason Statham Has Taught Us About Action Movies

Generic titles are always a cover.

Whether he’s The Transporter, The Mechanic, or one of The Expendables, don’t let the nondescript title of an action movie fool you. It’s all a ruse to not give away very much about the character or the plot line (if one does indeed exist), and is a titling trick that has worked well for the genre for years now. (See: The Terminator, The Fugitive, The Rock, The French Connection.)
