The Transporter Refueled

Out Now On-Demand

Reboot of the action series created by Luc Besson and previously led by Jason Statham, who now hands over the keys to Ed Skrein (iLL Manors).

Frank Martin, a former special-ops mercenary, now lives a less perilous life transporting classified packages for questionable people. When Frank's father (Ray Stevenson) pays him a visit in the south of France, their father-son bonding weekend takes a turn for the worse when Frank is engaged by a cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabanol), and her three seductive sidekicks to orchestrate the bank heist of the century.

Statham has been replaced by the younger, blander Ed Skrein​, who shares his predecessor's Cockney accent but looks more male model than bruiser.

It's going to take more than a new set of hub caps and some fluffy dice to reimagine this franchise, which is clearly up on the blocks.

Crass and nonsensical, but it is hard to hate.

Guardian (UK)

Only the ultra-impressionable will be thrilled: not a single blow in its posy, prop-dependent fight scenes looks as though it connected, let alone hurt.

Running on cheap gas.

One of the most enjoyable bad movies of the year.

Delivers a couple of nice action set pieces, but there's also a pervasive sense of déjà vu...

Refueling not required!

I think there's a time to stop making a movie when it just starts to blend all together like one-long-bad-movie! Just because you add your dad in and a few hot chicks, it's not going to ease the pain of the regurgitation in your mouth.

I don't know how many Audi's they used or the time to repair the car, but who cares! It's ground-hogs day served up the same way, again and again and again...

Please keep driving to someone who cares!
