Storyline

Frank Martin is the best in the business. The ex-Special Forces operative hires himself out as a mercenary "transporter" who moves goods--human or otherwise. Very simple, he delivers, no questions asked. Frank has relocated from the French Mediterranean to Miami, Florida, where as a favor to a friend, Frank is driving for the wealthy Billings family. There's very little that can surprise The Transporter, but young Jack Billings has done just that; Frank has unexpectedly bonded with Jack, age 6, who he drives to and from school. But when Jack is kidnapped, Frank must use his battle-tested combat skills to retrieve the boy and thwart the kidnappers' master plan to release a virus that will kill anyone with whom it comes in contact. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Statham - Superhero!
18 December 2018 | by Tokyo1013See all my reviews

Yes! I treat the Transporter series like Bond films. That's what they remind me of. This may perhaps be my favourite. Director Louis Leterrier(Who directed The Incredible Hulk) takes on the Transporter. He makes it exciting. Lots of over the top action. Fight scenes are fantastically choreographed(Cory Yuen). Car chases are beautiful. Kate Nauta is sexy. She is sexy as a nurse, sexy in pink, sexy in red, sexy in almost nothing, sexy with guns. She even has a song on the soundtrack. Amber Valletta is gorgeous! The perfect Bond women! The cars are supercharged. The villian is crazy, hellbent on destruction. The score by Alexandre Azaria is superb! Reminds me at moments of John Barry's music in Bond films. The songs on the soundtrack explode with techno beats that make you want to buy it. The 5.1 surround adds a big plus as well. All this, rolled together, make an entertaining flick. You can and should add this to your collection. Highly recommended action movie. Statham can fly, therefore......
