The Transporter (2002)
Good Action, But Could Have Been Better.
Already at the very beginning, after the car chase scene, this movie seems promising of heavy action sequences. The soundtrack is an important contributing element to the film's fast pace. Statham's performance as the calculating 'transporter' is exceptional.
Unfortunately, a few sub-par elements take the shine out of this movie. Among them is a particularly bad performance by some members of the supporting cast, and (most importantly) a very weak plot. Basically every scene of the movie includes Statham, thus giving little opportunity to get to know the foes or their intentions a little better.
All in all, this is a good action movie with very well achieved stunts. It is only regrettable that the trade-off for good action is the lack of attention provided to the making of the story.
Slipping Into Darkness (1988)
Not even close to garbage.
This movie is deplorable. As the title suggests, the movie slips into darkness, together with many other unknown bad movies. Even the character names are third-rate.
The only thing that caught my interest is the poor dog that appears a few times in the movie - first it gets hit by a car, then it is abandoned in the middle of nowhere. Unless you enjoy watching really bad movies -the kind that you would only find at some forsaken corner of a very small and dirty video store-, I recommend you stay away from this one.
