A thief with a unique code of professional ethics is double-crossed by his crew and left for dead. Assuming a new disguise and forming an unlikely alliance with a woman on the inside, he looks to hijack the score of the crew's latest heist.
Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukranian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
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.
