Editorial Reviews

Trying to get out but regretfully pulled back in, uber-driver Frank Martin (Jason Statham), in his third misadventure in the Transporter series, eschews retirement to hit the road again--but under unique duress. Frank's services as a wheel man are wanted by a pathological villain, Johnson (Robert Knepper), who pressures him to drive Valentina (Natalya Rudakova), the party-girl daughter of a Ukrainian official (Jeroen Krabbé), across Eastern Europe as part of an environmentally-unfriendly blackmail scheme. The story's gimmick is that Johnson outfits Frank and Valentina with wrist bracelet bombs that will go off if either of them gets more than 75 feet away from the car.

That limitation sets up several enjoyable suspense sequences, including a complicated chase after Frank's car is stolen, forcing him to keep up with the speeding vehicle via a bicycle. Car stunts, no surprise, are plentiful, capped by a breathtaking scene in which Frank drives atop a speeding train. Obligatory fight scenes are no less imaginative, involving numerous confrontations between the hero and a lot of very big bad guys, occasionally using articles of Frank's clothes as unexpected weapons. The script, co-written by the estimable French director Luc Besson (The Professional), has its flaws, such as an awkward striptease by Frank in order to secure the impulsive Valentina's cooperation. But overall, this is a fine popcorn movie with a satisfying conclusion and lots of comedy on the side. --Tom Keogh


Product Description

Jason Statham is back as Frank Martin, the Transporter, in this explosive third installment of the action-adventure series. This time, Frank is presented an offer he can't refuse and ends up with a mysterious passenger and a dangerous destination - calling for a new machine and new rules. The stakes are bigger, the enemy is deadlier, and the action has never been hotter.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm still not sure if Statham can act, but who cares? February 7, 2009
Format:DVD
Frank Martin (Jason Statham) is back and this time he is forced to transport Valentina (Natalya Rudakova), an objectionable young woman, across Europe by a group of villains who have fitted Frank and Valentina with explosive bracelets. If either of them move more than 75 feet away from Frank's car, their bracelet will explode.

Given all of the other reviews that I have read of "The Transporter 3", I went in to this film expecting to be disappointed and was pleasantly surprised when I wasn't. Although the script is not quite as good as Luc Besson's previous film, "Taken", this is more than made up for by the awesome stunts and martial arts sequences (choreographed by Cory Yuen, who was responsible for the action sequences in the previous two films). Two action sequences in particular, one involving Statham effectively performing a striptease while fighting half a dozen villains, and the grand finale on the train, are alone worth the price of admission.

One of the main criticisms that had been leveled at this film is that the heroine is distractingly ugly and annoying. Although Rudakova and Statham seem to have absolutely no chemistry between them at all and I did wonder why Frank Martin was even remotely interested in Valentina, she wasn't so annoying as to ruin the film for me. Valentina is meant to be objectionable, and keeping that in mind, I actually thought Rudakova did a good job of playing her. As for her looks, I didn't think she was bad looking, just different, and I actually thought it was nice to see someone who didn't look the same as every other Hollywood heroine.

As for Jason Statham, I am still not certain as to whether he can act or not, but who really cares. Statham became famous because of his personality and his martial arts skills and both are again on display. Sure this film is somewhat derivative of Statham's other film, in particular "Crank", but that didn't bother me, and it shouldn't bother other Statham fans either.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Explosive Environmentally Friendly Transporter December 21, 2008
Frank Martin: Do I look like a man who came half-way across Europe to die on a bridge?

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Frank Martin (Statham) has his fishing trip interrupted when there's a package to be delivered.
2. This time he's wearing a bracelet that's to die for - that is, once he and his car are more than 75 feet apart at any given time
3. Not one to learn from his last movies, he proceeds to break all his rules yet again
4. His package proves to be pretty, pouty, petulant and a pain in the Audi
5. This time it's the environment at stake
6. Usual impossible driving feats follow, plus Statham gets to take his shirt off (Would you, could you, on a train?)
7. Awkward romantic scene makes you wish they wouldn't
8. Rather predictable ending

Statham wears his Transporter role comfortably and stoically, Francois Berleand returns as Inspector Tarconi, Natalya Rudakova plays said package, while Robert Knepper oozes slime as the main baddie.

Good entertainment if you're into cars, slick driving and fast and furious action regardless of plot.

Rated: 3.5 stars

1.0 out of 5 stars Frank Martin Deserves Better February 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Transporter 3's lead writer (Luc Besson) has a thing for redheads.

I came to this conclusion after watching Transporter 3. I'm a big fan of Besson's science fiction foray, The Fifth Element, and all I could think as I watched the slinky, thickly accented Valentina (Natalya Rudakova) was how Transporter 3 would have been so much better if it had been Milla Jovovich in the role.

That I was distracted by the stiff Rudakova's acting is a testament to how much the film insists on zooming in on her, letting her drone on and on in her broken English, and the endless patience that Frank Martin (Jason Statham) seems to have for what amounts to a rich brat in a miniskirt and heels.

Oh right, the plot. So anyway, Martin is a wheelman who does jobs with certain rules. These are all meant to ensure success in Martin's job as a wheelman. By the time we reach Transporter 3, every one of those rules has been broken.

And that's the problem. The rules made Martin interesting. In Transporter 3, Martin has become a walking parody of himself, fetishized by the director to strip away (literally) everything likable about him, only to replace it with beefcake shots of Statham with his shirt off, whip-cut fight scenes that don't let us see his martial arts prowess, and aggravating supporting characters whom the Martin we know from the first movie would have left on the curb.

The gimmick here is that Martin can't just run away from his job because a super-advanced device is connected to his wrist that will blow him up if he is more than 75 feet away from the car.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transporter 3 (Blu-ray) June 22, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Movie - 4.0

I really like the Transporter franchise. Its B-movie nature from the mind and pen of one Luc Besson has always been an entertaining escapist romp for me. The series has always been quasi-serious, but often silly enough that we realize it's all in good fun. Whether Frank Martin is saving Chinese refugees or stopping an archetypal Colombian hitman from unleashing a deadly virus, he always does so in such style thanks in huge part to the cool cars he drives, his spiffy suits, and the always-welcomed martial arts choreography of Hong Kong legend Cory Yuen. However, Transporter 3 takes somewhat of a different road in terms of its tone. One of the things I noticed from the first time I saw the trailer was the cinematography. With that said, this 3rd installment is easily the darkest so far. Don't let that fool you, though. The film still has its campy elements and occasional cheese. We see Frank do his thing having to transport more human cargo, getting into situations where butt-kicking is required, make a few wise cracks, and even get some cool chase sequences in and out of the car. But the big difference here is the philosophical approach it tries to take as represented by the interaction of Frank and Valentina. Throughout the franchise, we've seen Frank as a man of rules and principles. Here, we see the opposite in a young, unabashed, free-living Valentina. I actually like what her character's purpose is in trying to open Frank up a little more as a person (like Lai in the first film), but I seriously wish they had picked a different actress. Contrary to the cute and perky innocence Shu Qi has in Transporter 1, I often had a hard time accepting Natalya Rudakova's performance.

If you like the Transporter movies then you will likely enjoy this one. Though I like it, it is my least favorite of the three. Still it is a pretty okay movie.
