The Transporter

Thriller . Crime . Action

But when he realizes his latest cargo is alive, it sets in motion a dangerous chain of events. The bound and gagged Lai is being smuggled to France by a shady American businessman, and Frank works to save her as his own illegal activities are uncovered by a French detective.

More Info:
  • Wesley Morris

    The best movie Steven Seagal never made. Except that Statham, while just as marked for death, is harder to kill.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • John Patterson

    Immensely exciting and funny.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    A poke in the adrenal gland -- obeys the first law of action movie-making by quickening the heart and dazzling the eye.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    Kinetic, meaningless and fun.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    A thoroughly satisfying mix of mayhem and mindless fun.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    There's plenty to like here, especially for connoisseurs of the action genre, and there's also plenty to make you wonder whether Besson and co-writer Robert Mark Kamen scribbled their screenplay on a batch of Marseilles cocktail napkins and then lost one or two. Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Too much action brings the movie to a dead standstill. Why don't directors understand that? Why don't they know that wall-to-wall action makes a movie less interesting -- less like drama, more like a repetitive video game?

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This balls-to-the-walls action/adventure makes the average James Bond film look like something by Eric Rohmer. It’s high rent Steven Segal - fights, explosions, and more fights, but with a flair.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ray Conlogue

    This is a film where there isn't the slightest doubt about the dramatic outcome. But the marketing will be a cliffhanger.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Cut above this genre's usual industrial sludge, even when the chops and kicks are too fast to follow.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    What's most disappointing is the almost utter lack of humor -- In the mindless action sweepstakes, however, there's still enough here to place The Transporter above big-bang gibberish like XXX.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The plot doesn't rate as high as the quality of the bodies in fast, furious motion. What counts in The Transporter isn't the wafer-thin story about smugglers -- it's the way Martin kicks open a door, fends off a couple of axes and uses a perfectly ordinary sport shirt as a weapon.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Hank Sartin

    Entertaining but forgettable action flick.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Will Statham make it as an action hero? Hard to say. His personality makes Vin Diesel look positively debonair.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Robert K. Elder

    Muddles through as a film so uninterested in character, it doesn't bother assigning names to them.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Keith Cassidy

    Sreams its devotion to style over substance with slick action sequences, fast cars and breathtaking stunts.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    Another big, dumb action movie in the vein of "XXX," The Transporter is riddled with plot holes big enough for its titular hero to drive his sleek black BMW through.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Marrit Ingman

    A slick, sexy little package with fast cars, big explosions, dazzling locations in the south of France, a trip-hop score, and about as much plot to fill a thimble.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    Sadly, the last 40-odd minutes are essentially one fight, pushed to the point of absurdity.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    If anything, The Transporter isn't ludicrous enough; only one scene (a hand-to-hand showdown in the middle of an oil slick) reaches the inspired, delirious comic heights of the best Hong Kong movies.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Dave Kehr

    American audiences will probably find it familiar and insufficiently cathartic.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    So second-hand and disposable is it in every respect.

    Variety Full Review
  • Bruce Fretts

    It's like the worst movie Jean-Claude Van Damme never made.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Simels

    It takes perverse genius to make an action film this stupid.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Justine Elias

    Kills time between car chases and martial-arts bouts with random scuba-diving footage apparently culled from producer–co-writer Luc Besson's "The Big Blue."

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    That the movie becomes silly isn't necessarily a problem, but it also becomes tiresome, degenerating into a series of martial arts interludes -- everyone unaccountably leaves his guns at home.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Kim Morgan

    A blending of international film sensibilities -- France meets Hollywood meets Hong Kong -- with a very cool anti-hero protagonist.
