The villainous Polluter-in-Chief is eloquently played by Robert Knepper, familiarly loathsome as T-Bag on Fox's "Prison Break." And when Knepper and Statham get together, there's a fine showdown of grimaces.
67
The A.V. Club
In a series elevated by high-flying ridiculousness, Transporter 3 falls a couple of sequences short of the standard, but it does show off Statham's considerable dirt-biking skills. For that, at least, it's kinda rad.

As action movies seem to get more complicated and convoluted with international conspiracies and technological concepts, the "Transporter" franchise is refreshingly simple.

Variety
Boasts a measure of the retro machismo, style and attitude some 007 fans have found lacking in "Quantum of Solace." But it also has a pointless storyline, incoherent editing and a polyglot cast that renders some of the dialogue utterly incomprehensible.
50
Transporter 3 is the most frustrating entry into a series that has never set the bar terribly high.
50
Transporter 3 is so far over the top that it more than once spills into outright cartoonishness.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
If you're going to a no-frills action film, though, at least you want the action to be entertaining, which is where Transporter 3 falls down.
42
For those disappointed in the grim, gritty feel of the latest James Bond movie and who long for the absurdity of the Roger Moore-era entries, Transporter 3, ought to fit the bill.
40
Village Voice
The movie has more lags in action than either of the previous episodes, and somehow the dialogue is even more daft
30
Easily the worst in a trilogy that has been notable mainly for the presence of its everyman action star, Transporter 3 is a nonsensical, choppily edited bore, with awful dialogue.
