Whilst this film is by no means bidding for a place in the list of all-time greats, it is a wonderful action movie. After a fairly standard opening, the plot takes a very unexpected twist and our all-conquering hero grapples, in genre-typifying form, with unbelievable odds and dastardly uber-foes but, most of all, this a love story. The does-he-doesn't-he-get-the-girl plot (I won't spoil the film for you by revealing the answer) does, however, serve as a back-drop for some stunningly inventive action scenes. The martial arts scenes really are a joy - we alternately roared with laughter and felt our eyes pop out as the film goes from fight to fight and as the odds get ever-more improbable. There is a supremely creative comic twist to many of the fight scenes, and this plainly elevates the film above many of it's action-movie peers. (I'd love to know which art (or arts) were used - our bet was Kung Fu.) Jason Statham makes a thoroughly convincing performance and manages the transition from anti-hero to hero beautifully. The love-child of Superman, Bruce Lee, Bruce Willis and Vinnie Jones is alive and kicking in the South of France!

The original and the best this film is the first in the Transporter trilogy and the chase scenes are superb, the fight scenes fasst and impeccably put together and the one liners are as good as anything in a Stallone/Willis movie. A thoroughly enjoyable traditional action film which harks back to the eighties actioners that no doubt inspired it. Brilliant.

Format: DVD
This is a superb film. It's action-packed from beginning to end and is delivered with a gritty, stylish European feel, rather than in the slick American style. Our hero drives a BMW around the south of France. The only problem is his rather dodgy American accent, which just isn't needed. He would have been more convincing as an ex-SAS specialist with a cockney accent - but that might not have sold to the US-market. That aside, he's a ball-busting, sharp-shooting courier who lives by his own strict rules. His co-stars, an amusing French detective and the gorgeous Japanese 'package' keep the film rolling along. It's full of explosions, car chases and fist fights. This will be a real cult favourite in years to come.

Frank Martin is a former soldier running a private business as a "Transporter", a hired criminal whose job is to transport cargo, packages and passengers without question.

Frank is the best in the business and he has never broken the rules. When he is hired by an American criminal to deliver a package, his curiosity leads him to break the rules, and he discovers the package he is delivering, is a Chinese woman named Lai.

Learning that Frank broke the rules discovered Lai, the criminal sends his mercenaries to assassinate him.

Frank takes it upon himself to protect not only himself, but Lai, as he agrees to help Lai rescue enslaved people from China, who are being smuggled into France........

If you've seen any film produced by Luc Besson in the last thirteen years, you will know that they are hugely over the top, very silly, and in some instances, blooming awful (Taken 2, Colombiana). But thankfully, this is one of the better ones.

And the reason being is that its concept is just so foolproof. A man, a solitary man who doesn't break any rules, breaks one fundamental one and everyone wants to kill him.

But he can kick butt, and lots of butt is kicked. With the added bonus of Statham not putting on a ridiculous accent, this is the film that got him noticed, and even though its nothing to write home about, he has screen presence.

The main plot involving him and the girl may have been stolen from The Big Hit, but it's still dumb fun.

Format: DVD
The Transporter is directed by Louis Leterrier and Corey Yuen and written by Luc Besson (who co-produces with Stephen Chasman) and Robert Mark Kamen. It stars Jason Statham, Shu Qi, Matt Schulze & François Berléand. Music is by Stanley Clarke and cinematography comes courtesy of Pierre Morel. Plot sees Statham as ex-soldier Frank Martin, a much respected courier in the underworld who is dynamite behind the wheel of a car and electric with his fists and feet. Living it up nice and cushy on the French Riviera, he lives by a set of rules that should not be broken, but during this particular "transport" job, he breaks his rules out of curiosity and gets embroiled in a fight for life.

The Transporter made back double its production budget, enough of a financial swing to ensure that sequels would follow (two so far, with the first sequel easily the best of the three). With Stallone et al on the wane, and the likes of Diesel and The Rock yet to convince, The Transporter gave ex-model-turned actor-Statham the chance to flex his muscles and make a mark in the action genre. Which he did, with great physicality, deft of movement and rugged good looks. Which is just as well since all those around him are rather bad. He's helped enormously by the choreography of Yuen, who gives the fight scenes plenty of zest and originality to leave them memorable. The spirit of Hong Kong action movies reigns supreme in The Transporter, with the added bonus being that of Morel's pleasing photography. But strip away the action and there's nothing left, the plot is boorish and the dialogue just dreadful, worse still is Clarke's music score, where instead of adrenalin boosting urgency we get leaden comedy. Very poor, and indicative of the production.
