4.0 out of 5 stars Action laid on thick 19 July 2003
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!! 10 Oct 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Adventure Film 16 Jan 2007
By Scully Bloke VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is a good above average film. If you like a good action film, with good car and truck chases, and with some really excellent fight scenes then this film is for you.

What makes it above average is the twists in the story and a nice sense of humour that appears through out.

Very enjoyable

5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked classic 2 Jun 2003
By A Customer
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get over yerselves 15 April 2011
Format:DVD
is what I say to those giving this a low rating. It is what it is, a tongue-in-cheek actioner. That's the thing with action movies. Plot and characterisation come second to the thrills and spills and as with Bond, Die Hard etc you need to suspend disbelief and just go with the flow. You might as well criticise AC/DC's 'Back In Black' for not having an adagio movement or McD's for not offering a starter with their big meal offers. Some nitwit said this is the worst film ever made. Well if he's managed to see every film ever made he should get in touch with the folk at Guinness BoWR. That the film doesnt take itself seriously as a piece of art seems to have gone over the heads of the low raters. Anyway, it's a high adrenalin fun film recommended to anyone who wants a couple of hours of escapism but for whom 'Finding Nemo' is too nauseous.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
With its “Bourne” meets “To Catch A Thief” storyline, set pieces, pretty girl in tow and the ‘Stat’ doing what he does best (and with A-Lister style) – there can’t be many action film fans out there who didn’t eat up the “Transporter” series of films (even if the sequels weren’t quite as good as the 5-star first).

But if you live in the UK and go for the individual titles on BLU RAY (particularly the first two) - be aware that both "Transporter 1 and 2" on 'US' 20th Century Fox BLU RAYS are REGION A LOCKED - so they won’t play on our machines unless they're chipped for 'all regions' (which few are).

Stick with the UK issues instead. Or cheaper still – pick up the 3-movie bundle on BLU RAY and you'll have enough Cars and Kung Fu to get to the next oil change...

3.0 out of 5 stars Glad i didnt pay alot for this 16 Jun 2013
By Riki
Format:DVD
ok going to keep this short. i am have not seen any of these before the action was there a plenty and the film was watchable, but to be honest its like they asked jakie chan to make this and he said no.

it lacks any real depth and its clearly on a low budget but that shouldt matter, its all action very thin plot. and the amount of times you can see the contunitenty errors is laughable. And i am not talking about things like a digital watch in 1920 (like titanic) i am taking full on sceene where its like here share the one scuba gear we have, then it goes to them both wearing the scuba tanks flipers and all, back to no tank or flipers... i norm dont notice this shit but it was noticed on a few points in the movie.

i got it for 75p so i cant complain for a nights entertainment but if your looking for an epic movie this isnt it. if your looking car chases, fist fights and stuff blowing up go for it, just dont expect much of a plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars The best and worst of the action movie genre. 23 Jan 2011
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.
