Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 11/25/2008
"TRANSPORTER 3, like its predecessors, rides on the good looks and charisma of star Jason Statham....The stunts can be impressive, too."
Los Angeles Times - 11/26/2008
"[I]t's the charismatic unruffled dexterity in the face of impossible odds that rivets."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/05/2008
"The third edition of the brassy global action franchise, featuring a hero who's finicky about rules of conduct, makes good on its formula with no pretensions." -- Grade: B

Product Description:

Combining Western-style car chases and Hong Kong-inspired fight sequences choreographed by martial arts legend Cory Yuen, the Luc Besson-created TRANSPORTER films have found international success as a sort of working-class James Bond series. Jason Statham, who has become the go-to guy for big-budget B-movie thrills, returns once again as Frank Martin, the driver-for-hire for whom no job is too risky. Brimming with the usual jaw-dropping stunts, this is another crowd-pleasing entry in the saga, delivered at a brisk and flashy clip by director Olivier Megaton. Following the coercion of Ukrainian environmental official Leonid Vasilev (Jeroen Krabbe) into signing papers permitting the shipping of toxic materials into a harbor by criminal mastermind Johnson (Robert Knepper), Frank Martin is forced into accepting the job of driving Vasilev's kidnapped daughter, Valentina (Natalya Rudakova)--acting as human collateral--from Marseilles to the Black Sea coastal city of Odessa. On the chance the Martin should attempt to flee, Johnson has rigged him with a bracelet that will detonate if he strays more than 75 feet from his car. When Valentina is intercepted by a rival group, Martin will have to push his Audi M8 to the limit to complete his mission and ensure his own survival.

The TRANSPORTER films require copious amounts of suspension of disbelief, but then again, one doesn't hope they will strictly adhere to the laws of physics. The third volume provides ample thrills, not the least of which is the sight of a car driving off a bridge onto a moving train. Plenty of screen time is also given to Statham's superhumanly chiseled torso, while freckled Rudakova's unconventional beauty balances out the sex appeal. In the end, Statham's undeniable likeability propels the film, and his chemistry in a handful of scenes with Fran├žois Berleand, returning as Inspector Tarconi, provides some nice comic moments.

Product Description:

Jason Statham is back as Frank Martin, the Transporter, in this explosive third installment of the action-adventure series. This time, Frank is presented an offer he can't refuse and ends up with a mysterious passenger and a dangerous destination - calling for a new machine and new rules. The stakes are bigger, the enemy is deadlier, and the action has never been hotter.
