The Casting details for this film are a little sparse and think that Rudakova's acting as Natalya is well worth a mention there, really good. Berleand as Francois was OK at his acting too, Statham is maybe not that popular in his role; as always playing a very straight part as Janson. (+ and - follows)
(+) This comes well recommended for it's action; having that perfect high tension/tempo shown in the earlier films. The fight scenes are still very well done, as are the driving stunts.
(-) There is not a high level of acting needed here, yet that brings you down to that real life feel I guess. Transporter 1-2 are still the better films with more varied action and better plot.
