Rules are made to be broken.
Former Special Forces officer Frank Martin will deliver anything to anyone for the right price, and his no-questions-asked policy puts him in high demand. But when he realizes his latest cargo is alive, it sets in motion a dangerous chain of events. The bound and gagged Lai is being smuggled to France by a shady American businessman, and Frank works to save her as his own illegal activities are uncovered by a French detective.
I'm so gaytham for Statham.
All I'm saying is we should respect the Stath.
Because before neo-action kicked in in this decade, Jason Statham was almost propping up the action film all by himself. He was toiling in a thankless task in a genre that nobody really seemed to want to watch any more, yet he kept churning them out and along the way made some very decent ones indeed.
It's easy to trash films like The Transporter but, as someone who prizes action cinema, I'm pretty thankful to Statham for sticking with the genre and making himself one of the better specialist action stars that we've ever had. He's also a decent enough actor to have done some more serious films (more people really…
This is a movie in which Jason Statham fights a room full of bad guys by pouring motor oil on his glistening chest and sliding around the room like he's a god damned seal.
Life can be pretty good sometimes.
It didn't take long for this series to surrender all ties to reality, with increasing efforts to outdo itself in the subsequent sequels, trying desperately to be on par with the big boy blockbusters despite its B-movie trappings. But for a while, and for long enough to not completely derail the story by the time it ends, The Transporter keeps things simple and intimate, believably spinning its yarn about a courier of sorts who breaks one of his cherished rules one day when he "looks in the package," which sends his ordinary world spiralling out of control. A little bit of this goes a long way, and once the guns start coming out, and characters are forced to evolve quickly…
It's very hard to dislike Jason Statham in anything he does, no matter how bad it might be; he automatically gets a bit of a free pass from me. When I first watched The Transporter, I really dug it. On probably my third or fourth rewatch, I'm afraid I can see past the enjoyment of Stath and through to the problems it sadly has as a movie. As possibly one of Statham's most well known actioners, the one that first defined him, is anchored solely by his charisma yet weighted down by threadbare narrative, characterisation and ultimately style.
Perhaps I was for a long time tricked by the fact the first 30 minutes are actually pretty decent; it's a very…
Razor thing plot and the action is WAY over the top, but the film is entertaining enough if you have nothing better to do.
92 minutes of action and not much else...

In this movie, there is a scene where Jason Statham takes off his shirt, gets oiled up, then gets soaking wet and puts his lips on another mans lips. If you haven't seen this film you might be wondering what the fuck I'm talking about.
Fun and silly action movie. Statham is a really impressive fighter, and whenever he's kicking ass you can't help but think of Asian martial arts films, in a good way.
Also, Shu Qi is unbelievably gorgeous in this. Like, god damn girl.
"The Transporter" is a not bad action flick that, true to the genre, is heavy on the action and not much else.
Don't look here for a plot you can sink your teeth into. The focus is on outrageous and at times downright dazzling set pieces designed to show off the athleticism of star Jason Statham. He's a relaxed and easy to watch action hero, and as long as he's engaged in kicking butt he easily carries the film, but he doesn't have the charm of, say, a Jackie Chan, and he doesn't do as well with the scenes where he's actually required to speak. But fortunately, he's not required to speak frequently, and when he is, he's only asked to deliver a few words at a time. Wise decision by the screenwriters.
You're not going to add any points to your I.Q., but you just might have a good time.
Nossa por ser de 2002 esse filme me faz já me sentir velho,eu vi assim que saiu em DVD,Carga Explosiva se chama “o Transportador”( The Transporter) se fosse traduzido literalmente,mas o fato é Carga Explosiva é um nome mais legal,este é um dos primeiros filmes da carreira de Jason Statham,e começou com estilo ele é dos remanescentes um dos poucos brucutus,que são aqueles “super soldados” que eram bem comuns nos anos 80 e primeira metade dos 90.
Jason interpreta um Transportador exótico eu diria ,ele basicamente transporta qual quer coisa,usa uma BMW E38 modificada ,e faz desde de buscar crianças na escola ,até ajudar assaltantes a fugirem,com o tanto que o trato não seja mudado,seja honrado ,dentre outras coisas,esse é…
Surprisingly weak. Started OK, but got a bit ridiculous for my taste. Maybe it's a genre thing. Almost fun, but not quite.
Despite a being stylishly horrid, Statham rises above for his breakout film
Jason Statham is a joy to watch in almost everything. This movie is epically ludicrous. That's not the problem. The problem isn't the absurd action, or the nonsense plot, the problem is the ridiculous romance and the silly female lead. The perpetually-in-jeopardy female character, and the way she throws herself into bed with hero, is a cringe-inducing cliché. It doesn't help that the woman playing the role can't act. The Transporter should be a classic guilty pleasure movie, but the terrible female lead and forced romance kind of ruins it.
„The Transporter“ ist der perfekte Film für einen Männerabend. Eine fast nicht vorhandene Story und Action am Fließband wissen perfekt zu unterhalten. Mit ein paar kühlen Bierchen und einer Tüte Chips, lässt es sich dann prima im Kreis der Freunde feiern.
Dumb but fun, with an arseload of action , the Stath, hot cars and a hot chick.
