Toxic waste bubbles in a ship waiting permission to dock in Odessa. Frank Martin turns down a job in Marseilles, referring it to a pal. A short time later, the pal, wounded by gunfire, crashes his car into Frank's living room and dies, leaving a young woman in the back seat. The employer of the dead man shows up, forces Frank to take the job, snaps a bracelet on his wrist that will explode if Frank gets more than 75 feet from his car, and sends Frank on a journey east with the young woman and a trunk full of something. She's Valentina, nearly mute. Can Frank figure out what's going on, deliver the package, and escape alive? And what does the ship have to do with it? Written by <>

Johnson: You've disappointed me.
Frank Martin: You won't be the first, and you won't be the last. I told you I wanted to do this in person.
Johnson: That won't be necessary. You see, since we had our little chat at the beginning of the mission, I've been thinking I don't need the best man for this mundane assignment. Any idiot with a drivers' license will do, so, in the words of the great American Donald Trump, I'm sorry, but you're fired.

Fight scenes are shot & edited so poorly
18 March 2009 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Honestly, I thought I was going to have an epileptic fit from the fight scenes. No joke - in a one minute fight scene there are almost 50 cuts. Can you imagine Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan or Tony Jaa doing that? No way. The point of an action film is to highlight cool action scenes. You can't do that when this Michael Bay-influenced rapid fire editing.

I liked the first two entries in this series, but this one is really, really bad. I think the blame lies with director Olivier Megaton who seems to not know how to shoot or edit a fight scene to save his life. Seriously, why hire Corey Yuen to do your fight scenes if you are going to cut ever half second? Just a complete mess. The sad part is that nearly 60% of the movie is edited like this. Honestly, do we need three flash cuts when you are just showing a picture on a passport?
