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.

Fine action with Luc Besson script. When Statham is not kicking and shooting he can be almost nice with his laconic style.
First half felt better than the finishing. His cool driving is top and the french comissar who brings Marcel Proust and madelines is good. Why action films dont have more often a touch of another culture. . .

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.

Being a fan of Jason Statham and the series I decided to give The Trsnsporter blu ray a try. Its a fairly decent transfer and it looks way better than the dvd version but not the best I have seen. You can notice grain in many scenes of the movie and the facial detail is ok but not as high as we might expect.nothing to stop you enjoying the movie though.The movie itself is great. Packed with full of action. I love the movie and Statham is amazing. Give this movie a go as you wont be disappointed. Fast delivery and as described. Great seller.

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.

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.
