Nate's family complete their unknown task and speed off down the highway; but the criminals need their money, and will stop at nothing to reclaim it. Written by
The best thing about Transit is that it is realistically photographed in the Louisiana bayou country. I thoroughly expected someone to get eaten by one of the alligators or poisoned by one of the swamp dwelling snakes.
The Sidwell family is going on a camping trip to mend some fences. Dad played by Jim Cavaziel has just been released from federal prison for some white collar fraud and he's trying to get to know wife Elizabeth Rohm and kids Jake Cherry and Sterling Knight.
But while they're trying to get the family unit functioning, a gang led by Harold Frain has committed a 4 million dollar armored car heist and to elude the police blockade put the loot in the Sidwell's wagon. The rest of the film is the Sidwell family being terrorized by the crooks who want their loot which for a while the family does not they have. When they find out, Rohm suspects the worst about Cavaziel.
Nothing terribly special about Transit, not the greatest film I ever saw, but it hardly rates some of the other venomous reviews I read.
