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…
Bad movie is bad.
He wanted to watch an action film so I let him pick the movie tonight. Its been a while since I seen this but it was decent.
A man is asked to deliver a package - no questions asked.
This film rips off every great moment from 1981's Raiders of the Lost Ark, but without any charm, a bad score, and an insipid script.
The lead character Frank Martin (Jason Statham) is ex-military and apparently immune to bullets and explosions. Playing his role as if he is a superhero, Statham emotes nothing except a blank stare and there is never any sense of danger for our protagonist. If you ever wanted to root for the bad guys, this may be the movie for you.
The Nazis are now Chinese because all bad people must be foreigners in this paint-by-numbers story by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen.…
Classic film but they made some really odd choices with soundtrack
Ridiculous action film with strong opening and closing acts but a second act which bogs the film down
Fun action flic, with some over-the-top fight scenes, but always keeps a sense of humor.
oiled up and ready to snog
Well yeah, it was fun even though there was almost no sense at all in it. It didn't matter because action scenes (there were many) were good. I could have give it maybe three stars but this feels like it is one of those movies you can watch just once and never again. The best scenes were: the beginning (which is kinda cool) and that fighting in oil.
Yeah I still don't understand how people take Besson seriously.
I'll admit this is still a fun/entertaining watch.
If I took a shot for every time someone said the word "rule", I'd be a dead man.
Throw up. Barf. Upchuck. Spew. Blow chunks. Ralph. Retch. Vomit. Technicolor yawn.
Puke movies galore for the emetophile in your…
