You have to appreciate Sean Young in any movie. Classic beauty, from Blade Runner right up till The Drop. This story is about a college student Carter (Bondies) who replies to a bulletin board ad to drive a car from San Francisco to a Los Angeles parking garage for $5,000. He interviews with the client in an odd environment and they mutually agree Carter should take the job. Carter drives to LA uneventfully and arrives In the dead of night. But can't resist the desire to see what he is really transporting and he discovers a key and a briefcase with contents that he doesn't like one bit. Things move a little faster after that as Carter hides the case and then tries to escape from the garage. The people Carter was supposed to deliver the car and case to turn up. Ivy (Young) and Mr. Zero (Savage) as well as their thugs chase Carter around the garage. During the chase Zero and his thugs seem to talk telepathically with Carter and try to convince him to turn in the case by threatening his family, girlfriend, and his life. This also gives the viewer some missing storyline background. Once they capture Carter, the twists start as Carter tries to save mankind. There are a large number of flashbacks for just about everyone in the film to make the garage chase more interesting, but some are indiscernible from current events. The cinematography is good and close ups make the lack of scenery irrelevant. It is nothing like the movie named The Transporter and pretty much stands on it's own as a movie that marries multiple themes. Some things in the movie just don't fit together well and some major questions are left up to the viewer's assumptions. I watch about 10 movies each week mainly while I do paper work and this is very far from the worst movie I have ever seen. If you like unique and fresh plots, don't bother. If you like to see how familiar faces bring their touch to the screen it can be worth watching.
