Martin (Jason Statham) is The Transporter - a cool driver guy who
lives by a set of rules. Unfortunately he breaks those rules within
20 minutes of the movie starting by opening a body bag in the back
of his car to find Lai (Qi Shu) - he allows her a drink and it looks
like a love affair is about to start.
our panel of critics thought
as big chested as Vin Diesel, but what Jason Statham lacks in width
he makes up for in mule kickage, and bitch slappage."
a load of old nonsense, however it is a very pleasant movie to watch.
Lots of humor and no tattoos to speak of. A joy."
Wizzy. Kerpow, and yet soft'n'sexy in the nice Nice sun. A South
of France triumph of cartertainment."
meets Fast and the Furious, sautéed in a James Bond vinaigrette,
roasted in a Columbo flame, with a pinch of Clouseau. Apart from
that completely original."
girl-on-a-rope, going for a pee, bit, was my favorite moment in
the whole movie - I have seen a very funny Candid Camera where they
did this: they waited for the woman to start peeing and then they
would pull her back in. Hysterical. Unfortunately this movie does
not try such a comedy highlight, a wasted urinatunity."
is terribly screamy. It is such a shame our hero removes the duct
tape so early on in the movie."
of the worst American accents in a while from a Brit, but on listening
to the DVD it was supposed to be this bad. Hmm!"
tell me the ending or whole plot if necessary
the baddies are killed, but it's a close run thing. Our hero has
to survive rocket launchers on his home, exploding brief cases and
shirt off wrestle-fu in brown syrup.
who initially turns on our hero, comes good in the end by shooting
her Daddy just in the nick of time (he has been involved in an illegal
China person smuggling racket).
Quotable quotes (real)
have a saying in France: Nobody believes the cook."
was a bastard but he was still my father."
are always complaining, except when we make love when you say nothing."
mindless actioner with superb scenery, lighting and some nice
jokes. This movie is really pleasing on the eyes and ears. Not
a mind movie, which is why it has been put in the popcorn strand,
but still a really good waste of an hour forty.
