Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

The Mechanic Soundtrack

You may listen to samples of the songs of the soundtrack of the Mechanic below:

In this video Composer Mark Isham and director Simon West discuss the music for the Mechanic movie:

The Mechanic Soundtrack – Interview with Mark Isham

Mark Isham’s score for The Mechanic is a hard-hitting action score suffused with the iconic melodies that have become the trademark sonic signature of Mr. Isham’s work. The tracks move effortlessly from “face blasting energy” to deeply emotional nuanced soundscapes. The result is a superb blend of modern electronic aggression and a beautiful orchestral palette. Mr. Isham recorded the Prague National Symphony, and recorded in Dvorak Hall in order to capture the full sonic grandeur of the work.
