Action sequel starring Jason Statham. Professional driver (and ultimate mercenary) Frank Martin (Statham) is now living in Miami, where he is temporarily filling in for a friend as the chauffeur for a government narcotics control policymaker and his family. When the young boy in the family is kidnapped and Frank is implicated in the crime, it's time to hit the road to preserve his professional reputation, outwit the pusuing cops and expose the kidnappers using any and all explosive methods at his disposal.
Transporter 2 knows what its audience wants and--like its title character--it delivers. This is a movie that has not only a fight choreographer but also a car stunt choreographer; a movie in which a female assassin wears nothing but a bra and panties because, presumably, additional clothing would be too cumbersome; a movie in which crashing through a concrete wall in order to leap over a four-lane street will not even rumple the hood of the hero's car; a movie in which a drunken supermodel, after her advances are chastely and gently rebuffed by the hero, says "Thanks for the respect--that's what I needed most"; a movie, in short, for those who liked the first Transporter but found it too subdued and character-driven.
Jason Statham (The Italian Job remake) reprises his role as Frank Martin, a perhaps overly diligent chauffer who will break bones if his duty is impeded. The sheer glee with which Transporter 2 casts aside logic, probability, and the laws of physics is infectious. If the sequence in which Frank flips his car upside-down in order to detach the bomb attached to his undercarriage doesn't reduce you to intoxicated giggles, well...you're watching the wrong movie. Transporter 2 is utterly shameless, unstoppably ridiculous, and completely enjoyable. Also featuring Amber Valetta (Hitch), Jason Flemyng (Snatch), and Matthew Modine. --Bret Fetzer

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!
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...
the only drawbacks are the following:
who on the director/screenplay was off his loony medication when they decided to fit in the scene with the audi jumping 30 ft in the air, doing a perfectly timed somersault next to a crane which is used to remove a bomb on the underside of his car - im not one for realism much but thats pushing it.
secondly - mr statham - you love your body, we get that but do you really have to have an excuse to rip your shirt off and cover your body in oil in EVERY movie you do........come on man, at least vary it a little........try strawberry jam for instance.
This second one is more action packed than the first. This time Frank Martin (Statham) is in LA working as a chauffer for a month as a favour to a friend. An evil baddie wants to kidnap the cute young son of the couple Frank is working for. He is assisted by Lola who wears a lot of mascara and not much else, but she does carry two machine guns. Frank is thought to be in on the kidnap initially. He has to rescue the kid as a matter of honour.
The plot is ingenious and keeps you interested with the develpoment of the story. Of course there is loads of action and stunts which make you gasp with incredulity. But that's the point isn't it?
As a sequel this is as enjoyable as the first if not more so.
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!
