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.

Trivia

This is the feature film debut of Adrian Thomas, who appears briefly in both scenes shot at Miami International Airport. See more »

Goofs

The pipe used to beat up the thugs in the garage is supposed to be metal, judging by the "clang" noise and sparks when it hits other objects. The pipe flexes badly when it strikes anything else and is obviously made of rubber. See more »

Quotes

Gianni Chellini: But nice try, I'm impressed. Took more than a driver to figure this out.
Frank Martin: I haven't figured it all out yet.
Gianni Chellini: Perhaps I can help you! What part are you a little... how you say, "thick" on?
Frank Martin: You. Why?
Gianni Chellini: Oh, well, that's the easy part. It's a business deal, pure and simple. I'm for hire to he highest bidder. And in this case, the highest bidders were the Colombian cocaine cartels that wanted these pesky lawmen off their backs.

Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, the actors names appear to be hanging from the ceiling of the parking garage. See more »

Alternate Versions

US version was edited for violence (the scene where Frank fights with an iron bar, digital removal of blood) and sexuality (shots of Kate Nauta's naked butt, digital retouching of shots where you could see her nipples) to secure a more commercial PG-13 rating. This version is ca. 25 seconds shorter. See more »

Thoroughly Enjoyable
2 September 2005 | by exntrc1See all my reviews

Shakespeare it isn't, but it's not for the plot that I watch the Transporter movies. The action is excellent and is even better if you are able to suspend your disbelief for an hour or so. There are a number of scenes that are so outrageous that you need to decide if you're going to buy in or get out. I bought in. There were also a couple of obvious blue screen moments and several stunts that were totally telegraphed, but otherwise fast and clever. The only disappointments for me were wardrobe related - he had too much stubble and wore way too many clothes. There was plenty of T&A for the guys but we waited in vain for the movie to give even a little something to the ladies... no such luck. In spite these minor failings, I highly recommend that you go along for the ride. I'll certainly be back again - Transporter 3 anyone?
