Small-screen remake of a classic
18 September 2015 | by tvman-3See all my reviews

This episode is clearly a remake of the classic movie "The Wages of Fear," which was remade by William Friedkin as "Sorcerer." Different context, of course, along with different topography, climate, etc., but very much the same premise. In this instance, there are three trucks, and the race against time is to save a group of trapped miners in the middle east, rather than to extinguish an oil well fire in South America. Frankly (no pun intended; okay, maybe a bit), I'm not wild about these stories that take Transporter Frank Martin out of his natural elements of a high-powered car on a stretch of highway or navigating tricky city streets, literally racing the clock. Without offering a quote, it's worth pointing out that Frank himself comments on how this particular "assignment" is taking him out of his element, as he must navigate marginally undriveable roads with slow, cautious, care. That said, if you haven't seen either of the films mentioned above, it ought to be a pretty riveting episode for you to view. There was a scene in "Sorcerer" (not replicated here) where the suspense became so intense I nearly had to get up and leave the theater.
