Rules are made to be broken!
Ex-Special Forces operator Frank Martin lives what seems to be a quiet life along the French Mediterranean, hiring himself out as a mercenary "transporter" who moves goods - human or otherwise - from one place to another. No questions asked.
Carrying out mysterious and sometimes dangerous tasks in his tricked-out BMW, Martin finds his latest assignment could well be his last after his package is revealed to be a beautiful woman (Shu Qi) at the centre of a human trafficking ring...
Produced by Luc Besson, this insanely entertaining action flick features a pumped-up Jason Statham commanding in the lead role (see him deflect an anti-personnel missile using nothing more than a tray!) with sultry Taiwanese beauty Shu Qi holding her own in Corey Yuen's extravagantly choreographed action sequences.
Commentary by Jason Statham

Excellent pop-corn movie

This film was made to have Jason Statham in it. I cannot think of anyone who would have done any better in the role.
Over-the-top - yes
Silly - yes
Enjoyable - oh, yes
The three essentials for this kind of film.
If you enjoy car chases, OTT bad guys, guns, lots of guns then go for this. The original DVD had the extras and the quality of it was spot on. Grab hold of the DVD for about a fiver unless you are wanting to build up a decent Blu-Ray collection, then go for this film.

OK Blu-ray release of an enjoyable action flick
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 03/05/2008 15:04:21
Of all the corny, cheesy action flicks out there lately, I must say The Transporter is one of the more enjoyable ones. Jason Statham is perfectly cast in this film as the ex-military man, now a transporter who takes people or packages for the right price.
The action in this film is of course its best feature, the fight scenes are really entertaining and done in a kind of tongue in cheek Jackie Chan style, the scenes on the bus and the oil slick bit are both good fun to watch (watch Jason kick ass around an oil slick wearing bicycle pedals on his feet!).
As far a Blu-ray releases go it isn't the best simply because it only offers the commentary track, which is to be fair quite good cos Statham is amusing to listen to. But none of the other extras from the DVD made it on here, which is dissappointing, which is mainly why I'm giving it only 3 stars. The video transfer is very good quality though with only some scenes suffering from digital noise and grain, but its looks great for the most part.
So I think The Transporter is worth a watch for the highly amusing action flick that it is, but the lack of extra features is a shame, hopefully they will release a better version soon.
