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.

One of the promotion posters for the film shows Valentina (Natalya Rudakova) posed holding a gun, despite the fact that nowhere in the film does she do so. See more »
At the beginning of the movie when the 2 guys are fishing, one hooks on to a big fish. They are using open-faced spinning rods and reels, but you don't turn the handle to bring large weights up. First you need to pump the rod to make slack and then wind fast to take up that slack. If you do it the way they did, the line twists and breaks. See more »
You've disappointed me.
You won't be the first, and you won't be the last. I told you I wanted to do this in person.
That won't be necessary. You see, since we had our little chat at the beginning of the mission, I've been thinking I don't need the best man for this mundane assignment. Any idiot with a drivers' license will do, so, in the words of the great American Donald Trump, I'm sorry, but you're fired.

The Worst in the Series
This is a sequel with no energy and a plot that focuses on all the wrong things. The girl that Frank is stuck with for most of the movie is obnoxious and a frustratingly horrible actress.
This could have been a good movie. I mean, it's got Frank having to drive a girl around, with an explosive anklet that'll blast him to smithereens if he's separated from his car. And she's the daughter of a politician who's being blackmailed into signing some document to allow chemical ships to get into the country without a hassle. Oh, and it's got Robert Knepper, an underrated actor, playing the villain.
Where did it go wrong? Maybe it was the fact this installment didn't match or surpass the fun ridiculousness of the first two (with the exception of Frank driving his car onto a train--and then THROUGH the train--to get to the bad guy). Or maybe it was the fact that the fight scenes were sped up (they literally fast-forwarded through some of the fights!) and blurry, with too many close-ups for you to tell just what the hell is going on. Oh, and that girl. That girl was terrible.
Some people may enjoy this, but for me, it was a huge disappointment.
