Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The fight between Frank Martin and Johnson was shot in two days and Robert Knepper only had a stunt double for one particular action. See more »

Goofs

There are no US style MACK trucks on the roads of Europe for transportation, like the two on the road to Ukraine. One of the trucks has the writing "Ukraina Trans" on its side, suggesting a regular cargo transport vehicle. Both of them have German license plates. See more »

Quotes

Johnson: You've disappointed me.
Frank Martin: You won't be the first, and you won't be the last. I told you I wanted to do this in person.
Johnson: 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.

Unexpectedly good!
6 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Ready to watch an average entertaining movie, I didn't expect to see the best of the Transporter sequels.

For once the script has been designed carefully, action and fight scenes happen logically, there is true suspense and we believe in the story. This is not the regular high-budget low-brained film we have been taught to expect.

Valentina (Natalya Rudakova) has a nice touch of "Nikita", and plays wonderfully the captive girl half romantic, half moving. A very promising actress. Jason is excellent as usual, and, for once, gets his performance highlighted thanks to a riveting story. Fight scenes have something from the legendary Jason (Bourne) movies. Camera effects give fights some necessary depth, compared to other movies.

The best of Luc Besson back at work.

Do not pay too much attention to the low rating: It looks like the Transporter aficionados - used to pure raw action/no story "Chuck Norris" like - were disappointed. Well, this is probably the best thing that could happen to this movie: Transporter 3 definitely got its level upgraded and targets a different audience.

My advice to the producer: keep on the good work, and create a new movie based on the same pattern, but just don't name it "Transporter 4", so that you don't disappoint the "Missing in action" fans.
