    The Transporter = Sucky movie

    This is not going to be a long review. In fact what can I say about a movie that I COULDN'T finish. Yep, I had to turn off the movie. Let me begin by saying I love movies that are Stunt and Fight oriented. As a child I dreamt of being a stuntman. But I digress.

    The story concept was half decent but the dialogue kills it. Then there's the fighting, which was not choreographed well. It reminded me of the scene in Mortal Combat Movie when Johnny Cage punches a stunt actor that forgets to fall to the ground - "This is where you fall down" - and then the throws himself on the ground. But worse.

    In conclusion don't waste your money on the rental. I also know

      I caught half this movie on the dish last week and the opening chase scene with the BMW was fantastic...but you're right the rest was laughable....if you want something even worse try the Invincible :throwup:

        Okay, I admit it. I'm the "contrarian" here. For one thing, I like Jason Statham a lot.

          David, You are not alone!

          I too enjoyed this film. I like the action. I like BMW's so, the car was a nice plus. The chase scenes are exciting. And using jazz as the hero's theme music was a different and appreciated touch for me.

              I also liked this movie. Sure it was formulaic and contrived in spots, but it was actually better than I thought it would be. And I think it made an enjoyable rental.
