8/10: Good mindless fun
Saturday, September 18, 2010

Action star Jason Statham is Frank, the eponymous transporter who will deliver anything for a price. He has three simple rules; never change the plan, no names, and don't look in the package. On his latest job he breaks the third rule and discovers that he has a beautiful Chinese woman in the boot of his car. Knowing that he is delivering a person against their will doesn't cause him to abandon the job although he does let her have a drink. When he delivers her he is offered another simpler job; just delivering a case this time. Luckily for Frank he stops off to get some refreshments because as he returns to his car it explodes. Displeased about this he returns to the house he'd dropped the woman at and helps himself to one of the cars there; but not before beating up a load of goons. As he drives away he discovers that the Chinese...

9/10: The Transporter
Monday, April 25, 2016

Incredible fight choreography and Statham athleticism (along with his usual cool and charisma), along with cars and buildings that go Kaboom!, offer plenty for action fans to embrace in this custom made star vehicle that follows a highly paid ex-military mercenary who performs tasks for customers with particular "packages" they want delivered to specific locations under certain conditions. He has rules to abide by so that the transport goes without a hitch. Well, he "opens a package" and what stares from within his trunk is a very pretty Asian woman (Qui Shu). She tells him of slaves being transported by those who hired him to bring her to them. If he doesn't help her they will die or be sold. What ultimately triggers his war with these dirtbags who initially hired him to bring them Shu is their attempt to blow him up in his car, a bomb disguised as another package for him to deliver. When they...

6/10: Brisk and slick French action thriller
Tuesday, November 22, 2016

A sleek and efficient action thriller from the guys who brought you KISS OF THE DRAGON. Although not equalling the heights of that particular movie, this is nevertheless a fully enjoyable tale of big bad guys, slimy bad guys, a lone action hero and a pretty tag-along Chinese girl (Shu Qi, who manages to be annoying, but not too much). The setting, once again, is France, so expect lots of breakneck car chases through the streets of Nice, some stunning locations, and lots of outrageous staged action sequences which will have you shaking your head in amazement – in a good way. Jason Statham is, it has to be said, no Jet Li, but instead he brings a kind of hardman toughness to his performance as the skinheaded hero, who strips off his shirt to battle the bad guys time and time again. I like Statham, and I hope to see him in more action movies to come. Out of...
