4.0 out of 5 stars Suspend belief and enjoy!
I enjoyed the original Transporter - good clean fun, action and, importantly, it didn't take itself too seriously. Transporter 2 carries along the entertainment.

Yes, the car stunts are way over the top - not a scratch on the car after being shot at, blown up, thrown through the air etc etc - but our man Frank is just so cool and composed - he even has a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Very clever
I've seen the first film a couple of times and thought that whilst it was OK and Jason Statham can just about act it was nothing special. I really wanted to hate this, but came away liking it quite a lot. The filmmakers knew what they wanted here. Its brainless entertainment with tongue firmly in cheek, and they know it....

In fact I enjoyed it more than the...

I enjoyed the original Transporter - good clean fun, action and, importantly, it didn't take itself too seriously. Transporter 2 carries along the entertainment.

Yes, the car stunts are way over the top - not a scratch on the car after being shot at, blown up, thrown through the air etc etc - but our man Frank is just so cool and composed - he even has a vacuum packed change of shirt, suit and tie in the boot!

What is exceptional are the fight scenes. Brilliantly choreographed, innovative, fresh and very enjoyable - he takes a bunch of baddies with a fire hose in one scene! No over long Matrix style never ending punch ups here - slick, fast and original set pieces with a touch of humour. Excellent.

This is a very good Friday night popcorn movie that will carry you along at a pace and with a smile. Would have given it 5 stars but for the slight 'no way' element of some car stunts - but that's me being a little harsh.

Rent. Enjoy. Bring on Transporter 3 I say!

I've seen the first film a couple of times and thought that whilst it was OK and Jason Statham can just about act it was nothing special. I really wanted to hate this, but came away liking it quite a lot. The filmmakers knew what they wanted here. Its brainless entertainment with tongue firmly in cheek, and they know it....

In fact I enjoyed it more than the first film. The villianess in bra and panties, endless ridiculous car chases, fight sequences that have to be seen to be believed. Its all done with style, panache and a "don't care if this is not real" attitude that other films , that take themselves too seriously (i.e. Mission Impossible 3) could learn from.

So if you let it wash over you, you will have a entertaining hour and 3/4. Don't think about it just enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars "The Transporter 1 & 2" on BLU RAY - Compatibility Issues With The 'US' Discs..., 18 Mar 2014
By 
Mark Barry "Mark Barry" (London) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
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 too 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 you to the next oil change...

A brilliant plot and perfect casting for this gripping thriller. This combined with the other Transporter series is a must for hero fanatics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy entertainment if you suspend all disbelief, 3 Nov 2010

This review is from: Transporter 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Every reviewer, who is horrified at the absolute lack of realism has a point - the movie is one of the most fantastical ones out there. If that is likely to disturb you, do not even consider it - you will probably see it as a one star performance. While the first The Transporter [DVD] [2003] was already somewhat far fetched, this one is definitely in a completely different league.

What the movie is about, is first and foremost entertainment. The driving scenes, fight scenes and the shootups are all there to be amusing, rather than realistic. All in all the movie succeeds if you are able to completely suspend your disbelief. The mastery is more in the choreography (both for cars and fighting) than in the acting or dialogues. Jason Stratham has only one facial expression and he seems to have been cast in the only role he excells at.

As also mentioned by other reviewers, the movie is probably second only to the James Bond movies in terms of product placement - Audi being the tip of the iceberg (and most visible to most viewers), with Officine Panerai and Nokia featuring quite prominently, too.

Overall the story is a standard Transporter fare - Stratham as the driver / bodyguard needs to save a kid (as opposed to an attractive female from theother movies) and of course deal with plenty of badies enroute.

If you are trying to spend an evening with an action comedy of the over the top variety the movie is definitely a good option, if you prefer you entertainment more cerebral, stay away.
