Running Time:100 Min.
Transporter 3 unfolds at a fast pace, establishing an urgent motif which keeps you on edge for the duration of the high-octane adventure. At the point of departure, we find Frank Martin (Jason Statham), chauffeur nonpareil, being "hired" at gunpoint by mobsters to drive a secret package to an undisclosed location. The catch is that to insure his allegiance the thugs have strapped a bomb to his body which is set to detonate if he wanders more than 75 feet from the vehicle.
Another complication is that Frank has a raccoon-eyed passenger coming along for the ride, Valentina (Natalya Rudakova), a pill-popping, vodka-swigging party girl he saved from the same goons. What our hero doesn't know is that the freckle-faced femme fatale just happens to be the kidnapped daughter of Leonid Vasilev (Jeroen Krabbe), a powerful Ukrainian politician presently being pressured to sign a government contract as ransom by the creep (Robert Knepper) who attached the explosives to his arm.
Fair warning, the storyline won't hold up well to close scrutiny, as the point of the picture is the incessant visual capture provided by all the pyrotechnics and gravity-defying stunt sequences featuring carefully-orchestrated gunplay, hand-to-hand combat, and car, bike and train chases. Is the plot plausible? No, but it hurtles along at such a breakneck pace you don't have a chance to pause to contemplate its preposterousness.
From Frank's successfully running a gauntlet of bloodthirsty foes, to driving his souped-up sports car off an overpass and landing safely onto a speeding locomotive, to tipping the auto onto its side to negotiate a narrow passageway between a couple of 18-wheelers, this is an overindulgence in pure escapist fantasy. Mix in a little charm and romance.
This movie has something for everyone.Hope this helps you decide.Thanks for reading! :)
Second sequel in TRANSPORTER series. Anything Jason Statham does is action-packed, fast-paced, seemingly unending. In TRANSPORTER3, more of the human side of Statham's character is revealed, more personal rules are broken. A story of envronmental issues of toxic waste, black-market ravaged Ukraine & the mob evolving around the kidnapping of the daughter of a high ranking Ukrainian minister (wonderfully played by Robert Knepper (of several BOND films). Interesting performance by Natalya Rudakova, whose streaming make-up reminds you of the imagery of THE CROW. As the nemsis says, there are no more countries, only business & corporate interests & relationships of a global nature. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy!!
I will admit i was a bit of a skeptical when i first started to watch this movie due to the impression left by Transporter 2.(not as good as the first one) But from the offset there was nonstop action awing viewers with big explosions and a fast paced plot. The main character is portrayed as a "bad-ass" who doesn't take orders from anyone and will pretty much beat on anyone who confronts him , which has remained even from the previous transporter movies. The car chase scenes are phenomenal just when you think it all over , BANG , slapped in the face with a twist which just makes the chase scenes even cooler.
Having said all that, the movie is nothing fantastic. The plot line was typical of any standard action movie ,fast driving, fighting, sex, exc, but it was entertaining. It made me laugh. The characters are really engaging to watch, specially the red head. She was very beautiful. This movie is worth watching because it keeps you on the edge of your seat, it's never dull, and a lot of the scenes are humorous. Getting this on Blu-Ray was worth the price.
