Product Description

Frank Martin has been pressured into transporting Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of Leonid Vasilev, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency for the Ukraine, from Marseilles through Stuttgart and Budapest until he ends up in Odessa on the Black Sea. Along the way, with the help of Inspector Tarconi, Frank has to contend with the people who strong armed him to take the job, agents sent by Vasilev to intercept him, and the general non-cooperation of his passenger. Despite Valentina's cynical disposition and his resistance to get involved, Frank and Valentina fall for each other, while escaping from one life-threatening situation after another.

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.

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.

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

First off, many reviewers were complaining that the girl wasn't hot enough. To you I say, buy some glasses. The girl is plenty hot, and that really doesn't matter much anyway. The biggest problem with this movie is that Frank could have killed the skinny, weedy, pointless mastermind five or six times without blowing himself up, and I really wanted him to because that dude was super annoying. However, plot and story have never been the strong suit of movies like this. Explosions, fight scenes, and a touch of goofiness are, however, and this movie had plenty of those, plus they had the inspector, who I like a lot. At their best (or after you've had a few drinks) these movies are like ultra-violent Jerry Lewis films, which kind of makes sense, really, and this one falls into the "had a few drinks" category. Still pretty fun though!
