We don't learn a whole lot about Frank Martin (Jason Statham). We know he is ex-military and that he currently earns his living transporting dubious goods. He's a meticulous perfectionist who lives by a few simple rules -- or at least he did, until his current job came along. It should have been simple -- pick the bag up here, drive it to there, deliver it, and go home 40 Gs richer. A flat tire changes all that, as he can't help but notice the bag resting atop his spare tire in the trunk is moving. Enter Lai (Qi Shu), undoubtedly the most attractive piece of cargo he's ever transported. Now you might expect Frank to let the girl go -- but Frank always honors his deals. That would have been the end of the story if his client hadn't double-crossed him in the end.Read more ›
The transporter's next job consists of delivering a small suitcase to a location. All goes well until he gets a flat tire, opens the trunk and sees the suitcase moving. When he opens it, he finds the lovely Qi Shi, a pretty young Chinese actress who manages her role well, in spite of the fact that she speaks very little English. No problem though because there is very little dialog anyway. Mostly, things blow up, including our hero's luxury house and the pair are forced into a daring underwater escape. There is more and more action and more and more people getting killed and some sort of redeeming value in the plot about saving Chinese slaves from a cargo container.Read more ›
The packaging of this movie has one or two things you should know about. First of all this is a LUC BESSON produced movie. Yeah, that's right, it is a Luc Besson presents "The Transporter" but is not labelled as such because most "Luc Besson presents" movies are really bad in plot, structure, story and dialogue in favor of big explosions and car chases. In essence, The Transporter is the exact same sort of hokum, except for Jason Statham showing us that he can do some stunts and in fairness he does them well.
If you did not like "Taxi" then you will not like this one. If you liked Taxi then you can expect pretty much the same thing - terrible plot that is just there as a convenience to show some car chases, punch-ups and shoot outs. It was good to see Statham doing the action hero thing although he does lack a bit of charisma and the hard man side does not come through as well as it should because of various scenes that give him a heart.
The plot is really full of obvious holes with totally unbelievable scenes (especially with the detective) and has something to do with a mafia dealing in slaves and Statham being double-crossed on one of his transporting jobs. Cue various set pieces involving Statham doing some stunts, beating up the bad guys and saving the day. In terms of storytelling it is a way below average for its type, but the action is not bad and at least the fun fight sequences and odd laugh help save this one from being as bad as the one star screenplay.Read more ›

Another good action movie with Jason Statham. I have most of his movies and I like them all. It was also received in really good condition and a lot earlier than expected.Published 19 months ago by Huguette Cox
