Toxic waste bubbles in a ship waiting permission to dock in Odessa. Frank Martin turns down a job in Marseilles, referring it to a pal. A short time later, the pal, wounded by gunfire, crashes his car into Frank's living room and dies, leaving a young woman in the back seat. The employer of the dead man shows up, forces Frank to take the job, snaps a bracelet on his wrist that will explode if Frank gets more than 75 feet from his car, and sends Frank on a journey east with the young woman and a trunk full of something. She's Valentina, nearly mute. Can Frank figure out what's going on, deliver the package, and escape alive? And what does the ship have to do with it?Written by
The song in the scene which Frank is seen making out with Valentina following Frank's forced striptease is "Hell Around The Corner" by Tricky. The song borrows music from the song "Glory Box" by Portishead. "Glory Box" by Portishead was featured in Stealing Beauty (1996) which starred Jason Statham's future Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) co-star Jason Flemyng whom played Dmitri in Transporter 2 (2005). Tricky had starred in the Luc Besson science fiction film The Fifth Element (1997) as Right Arm was the screenwriter of The Transporter (2002). See more »
