Product Description

THIS IS NOT A PERFECT GETAWAY. To move four million dollars of stolen money past a police roadblock, the perpetrators of a deadly bank heist use a suburban family as unwitting couriers. Now, the criminals want their money back and will stop at nothing to reclaim their ill-gotten gains.

Transit is a high-octane, explosive action thriller, from legendary action producer Joel Silver (Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, The Matrix) and After Dark Films also starring James Frain (Tron: Legacy, True Blood, Diora Baird (30 Days Of Night) and Harold Perrineau (Lost, The Matrix Reloaded)

Fasten your seatbelts, this is going to be one hell of a ride...

5.0 out of 5 stars Caviezel's best since 'Highwaymen'. 5 May 2012
Format:DVD
OK. I know this is not due out until 7th May. But I gotta hand it to you, it's on release at Blockbusters, so I got to see it. Pretty cool flick with Jim Caviezel playing an ex-con who goes on a camping trip with his family, when unaware during his trip.. Four armed robbers manage to put their ill gotten gains on their jeep.
Now, determined to get it back, they hunt the family.

After watching this, it turned out to be a really cool flick. Especially if someone was to watch it on a rainy day. Jim Caviezel did well in this one, just like the last flick he's done in Highwaymen. Produced by the man who gave us Lethal Weapon and Die Hard. This one was really good! Thumbs high!

4.0 out of 5 stars solid thriller 28 May 2012
By Jay79
Format:DVD
I wasn't expecting much settling down to watch this but was pleasantly surprised.
The story is simple, thieves steal 4 million dollars and want to escape across the boarder.
knowing they will be found with the loot they plant it amongst bags which belong to a family who are going away on a camping trip.
Of course they want the bag back so they intensely pursue the innocent family with violence and action along the way.
The movie swiftly moves along at a good pace with no boring bits atall and there are a couple of twists with characters I didn't see coming.
I was easily kept until the end with a decent simple storyline, overall good acting and well done action/chase scenes. The family is likeable and I couldn't help rooting for them.
No ground breaking stuff here but this was a small budget ride which succeeds in entertaining without having to think too much

4.0 out of 5 stars How not to steal 4,000,000 dollars 15 May 2012
Format:DVD
Sometimes you have just have to be in the right mood for a certain film on the right night for all sorts of reasons. When I watched this on DVD I got a great kick out of it. Perhaps on another night I might have felt differently about it.

Yes its formulaic. But the story line is nevertheless inviting and I thought the entire cast did a great job. Set in the Bayou - which always makes for a great backdrop - the tension was maintained throughout and even if you knew that the bad guys were in for a frustrating day, you couldn't predict the obstacles they faced from the plucky, albeit domestically fraught, innocent family fighting back.

As I alluded to, if you're in the right mood for a bit of Hollywood-inspired tension this might just fit the bill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting 18 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Quick review , this short but pulse racing thriller is real edge of seat stuff, your typical family trying to rebuild their relationship with the father who has made bad decisions are thrown into a situation testing their mental and physical strength against some real nasty crooks.
Joel Silver produces and reminds us why he produced some of the best action film of the last 30 years.
A not well known or advertised movie its an underrated delight and a tense evenings viewing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Jesus takes a holiday.... 14 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Jim and his family are travelling to go camping with one son who has a huge chip on his shoulder and one who has amazing hair.

Meanwhile, a bunch of Thieves who have just robbed an armoured truck, are making a getaway, but them darn roadblocks stop them from doing so.

They have a brilliant idea of hiding the money on Jesus' range rover, and then pick it up later on.

What they didn't expect was that not only is this man Jesus, but he can make even the slightly interesting premise appear boring.

And thats the problem with this movie, it's boring and never gets going until about ten minutes from the end. The film is just full of unlikable people, and that's the problem, there is nobody to root for.

Caviezel again proves that the thin red line was a one off and shows just how far his star has fallen. The one from lost and R+J plays a stereotypical character, complete with machete! taking movie making back about 25 years.

The narrative isn't too bad, but when you see horrible choices made from the bad guys (killing your girlfriend? come on) you really begin to wonder how more absurd the film can get.

It doesn't, it just becomes maundering, like the slappable teenage son.

By Simon
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The camping trip was meant to reunite the Sidwell family. When they are hunted and terrorized by violent bank robbers, their very survival will depend on working together.

I enjoyed this film as i'm a fan of Jim Caviezel, simple storyline, good acting, decent action sequences that keeps you watching til the end.
I recommend this to Jim Caviezel and action fans, well worth watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars A tense and exciting thriller 26 Sep 2012
By Benminx
Format:Blu-ray
Somehow, despite not being a fan of his, Caveizel keeps making films I end up enjoying. This is certainly one of them, starting with an armoured car robbery, and then changing to show us Caveizel's white collar ex-con trying to patch up the cracks in his family by taking them on a camping trip.
En-route, the robbers decide to stash their loot on his vehicle to avoid being caught with it at a roadblock, and the film suddenly accelerates into a tense chase movie, with hunter and prey losing each other several times.
The victory is in the casting. Caveizel's family are excellently played for innocence and sympathy, and Caveizel himself has rarely seemed more wounded, desperate or eager to make amends in a role as a man who just can't catch a break, even when he hasn't done anything wrong.
A chase movie's tension lives and dies on the quality of its villains, and here we get a great team.
Led by James Frain in hard-staring menacing form, all of the 4 bad folk are excellent, but Harold Perrineau adds extra threat with his hyper-edgy, untrusting and confrontational turn. You're never in any doubt that good luck and determination are the only things separating clan Caveizel from a nasty ending.
With twists of fate, brushes with the law, several tense chases and a nailbiting finale, it's a considerable notch above the usual 'family on the run from nutters' movie and well worth your time. It also features some excellent direction with inventive angles, and some acclaim-worthy stunt driving, with the bad guys' car being driven with the slick, dangerous skill of an angry panther waiting to pounce in several scenes.
Highly enjoyable.
