Product Overview

Frank Martin has been pressured into transporting Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of Leonid Vasilev, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency for the Ukraine, from Marseilles through Stuttgart and Budapest until he ends up in Odessa on the Black Sea. Along the way, with the help of Inspector Tarconi, Frank has to contend with the people who strong armed him to take the job, agents sent by Vasilev to intercept him, and the general non-cooperation of his passenger. Despite Valentina's cynical disposition and his resistance to get involved, Frank and Valentina fall for each other, while escaping from one life-threatening situation after another.

Review The Transporter movies remind me of the Bond films of the '70s and '80s, in which each new installment tried to one-up its predecessor in terms of inventive and outrageous action set pieces. Without a doubt, Transporter 3 offers more innovative ways in which to defy the laws of physics than Transporter or Transporter 2, but it lacks more than a semblance of a coherent plot. And director Olivier Megaton (what a name for an action director?) has succumbed to the belief that an action scene isn't good if the viewer can figure out what's going on. Because of this, Transporter 3 is the most frustrating entry into a series that has never set the bar terribly high...Transporter 3 does not take place in this world. It transpires in a far-off land where cars can come to clean, skidding stops atop speeding trains and where those same cars can tilt on two wheels and zip in between tractor trailers. Moves like these are bold enough to make one smirk at their audacity - not even Bond at his cheesiest in his best Q-equipped vehicles would try something like this - but it's an empty amusement...One gets the feeling that the story was developed to accommodate the action set pieces, rather than the other way around. At best, the plot is irrelevant. At worst, it makes no sense...Transporter 3 is proof that brain-dead action movies can be found in theaters during Oscar season as well as during the summer. Fans of the first two Transporter films will likely find this one diverting, although it is a step in the wrong direction. Others will wonder how a movie this disjointed and poorly scripted could get made. I'm betting we haven't seen the last of Frank. He may have broken all of his prized "rules," but that's not enough to keep a good man down, especially in a series where gravity is a variable thing.

Review "Transporter 3" is a perfectly acceptable brainless action thriller, inspiring us to give a lot of thought to complex sequences we would have been better off sucking on as eye candy. Consider this ingenious dilemma faced by the Transporter. He cannot remove a bracelet that is linked to a mighty bomb in his Audi A8. If he goes more than 75 feet from the car, the explosion kills him. He and the car and the Girl are trapped on a bridge by men with machineguns. He releases the Girl. The men are shooting at him. How can he escape?...The director of "Transporter 3," Olivier Megaton, is named after the bomb at Hiroshima, which was dropped on his birthday...Anyway, although Megaton's CGI fight scenes are as chopped up and incomprehensible as the current norm, he mostly avoids the Queasy-Cam and uses a stable camera while only the action moves. How about that...He also succeeds in clearing every highway in every chase scene so the road is held only by the chasers and the chasees. Except when two monster trucks are required to speed this way, in which case, although there has been no traffic since the border, they must pass each other and loudly toot their klaxons ooo-gaah! ooo-gaah! as if you don't see them...This movie is not boring. Jason Statham is a splendid action hero, steely-eyed, muscular, taciturn, a close-lipped know-it-all with three-day stubble. He could do the snowmobile race with two broken arms. The bad guys are suitably reprehensible, the photography is expert, and when you see the Transporter thinking his way out of that problem on the bottom of the lake, you're amazed that later he restarts the engine and uses it to drive onto the top of a speeding train and then calculates a way to use the train's speed to save ... but see for yourself.

Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader ..."Mission: Impossible" meets "Speed": high-tech gizmos, exotic European locales, and hair-raising stunts...
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly The villainous Polluter-in-Chief is eloquently played by Robert Knepper, familiarly loathsome as T-Bag on Fox's "Prison Break."
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun Adrenaline-freak heaven!
Mike Mayo, The Washington Post ...the production has the polish and pace that producer/co-writer Luc Besson's work is known for.
Stephanie Zacharek, Statham isn't an actor who coasts, not even in a recklessly enjoyable picture like Transporter 3.
