“The Transporter Refueled” has its entertaining moments, for sure. It is action-packed and places Frank Martin (Ed Skrein) into some amazing situations. In one scene, for example, he and a certain female are in a plane racing down the runway without a pilot, stationed at the center doors opening at the belly of the plane, with their only hope of survival to jump into a racing car beneath them with its top down. Oh, and they are being shot at as they attempt the jump to safety. It is a jaw-dropping scene. However, you know not to take it all seriously when these kinds of scenes become common, including the two of them driving a car, and fast, inside an airport with fleeing, screaming people, attempting to get out of the way.
A former prostitute named Anna (Loan Chabanol) watched a pimp blow away several of her friends years before when he reclaimed his “territory”. One of the survivors joined him and hopped in his limo. Anna did not. She is out to get revenge and gets Frank Martin (and his father) involved. Frank, a former special-ops mercenary, is a martial artist who takes more than six guys out at one time (as I said, realism is not the priority in this film). Frank’s dad is kidnapped twice which keeps him motivated to help Anna and her female friends in their scheme for revenge.
Although not slow moving in the least, the movie contains strong content in almost all our content categories including the sex, language and violence departments, so we are unable to award the film our Dove Seal.
