I'll admit, it's not a snappy title for the list, but it's a bit "Ronseal". I've picked 5 films from…
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.
Bad movie is bad.
I'm so gaytham for Statham.
Razor thing plot and the action is WAY over the top, but the film is entertaining enough if you have nothing better to do.
One well-choreographed fight scene does not a good film make.
Frank: Transportation is a precise business.
"The Transporter," is a film I'd expect most critics to hate. It's action heavy, with little character development, a predictable plot, and a mediocre script. In my eyes, this is definitely not a great film, but it does stands above an average flick, and does make for a fun watch.
For one, the star is Jason Statham, and I can't say as to why exactly, but I find Statham to be an actor worth watching, even if his films are a little samey. It might be because he's the grumpiest person ever put on screen, it might be because he's a total badass, it might be his charisma, it might be because he…
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…
I fell asleep in a drunken stupor on and off whilst watching this, and yet I still managed to both follow the plot of the movie and thoroughly enjoy it.
You can draw your own conclusions about what this says about both me, and the film itself.
Decent action. I fell a sleep during the final fights, so I'm sure it dont deserve a top character though.
A movie that you just knew was going to be cheesy as cheese but the movie is actually a bit more than that the martial arts fight scenes are awesome and very well made.
The story is about a loner, ex-soldier works as a "transporter" delivering any package, person or cargo, no questions asked. Abiding by a strict set of rules, he's about to find that breaking the rules leads to more trouble than he could ever imagine. This movie was a alright action flick.
Hong Kong martial arts filmmaker Corey Yuen’s new film, “The Transporter,” is the archetypal action film; its wafer thin plot is augmented by its intricate fight choreography. After seeing “The Transporter,” one has to wonder – for all the time and emphasis the director places in rehearsing and staging the martial arts, could not the scriptwriter be using that time to enhance the plot?
The transporter is a man (Jason Statham) that lives according to three rules: Never look in the package, no names, and once a deal has been accepted, it may not be modified for any reason. The transporter firmly believes that his life will be thrown into an irreversible chaos if he is to break any of…
One of the worst films I've ever seen.
I've put all my unwatched owned films into a randomiser and this was #1.
Statham is the "transporter" in this fun action film. He's good although he's sporting an awful accent (not sure where he's meant to be from?) and he's really starting to grow on me. The film has great fight sequences and action scenes, awful soundtrack (just so bad), awful love interest which is also pretty awfully acted, fun story and a good enough villain to make it enjoyable enough. If the action scenes weren't so good and statham wasn't in it I probably wouldn't have liked it.
Not a piece of art by a long strech and although there are way too many shots of Jason without a shirt, it is entertaining although quite silly mostly in the oil fight and in the chinese idiot villan face...the only thing that is really missing is an argument or an explanation of the treatment given to the chinese girl...but hey fuck it...ist good like this brainless lots of explosions guns and kick ass...of course SIdaris would not approve since there are no boobs..
