The Transporter 2
Frank Martin (Jason Statham) is a retired military operative turned transporter for hire. In other words, Frank protects and delivers all sorts of people and packages, without asking any questions. But in contrast with the glamour of his past jobs, Frank’s latest assignment seems tame. He simply drives young Jack Billings (Hunter Clary), son of the U.S. drug czar (Matthew Modine), to and from school. Still, Frank pledges to protect Jack at any cost, and that is exactly what he is forced to do when the boy is kidnapped. Despite the kidnappers’ request for a large ransom, Frank suspects that the crime has more to do with politics than money. As he evades the police, who suspect he assisted the kidnappers, and hunts the bad guys, Frank skillfully applies his muscle, brain and expert driving abilities to uncover the truth and protect the Billings family.
This is an action packed movie from start to finish. Frank exhibits self control by not taking advantage of a woman who wants to have sex with him. That and the fact that Frank goes out of his way to help a family in trouble are the only moments of merit in this movie. There is little blood although much of the film consists of martial arts fighting scenes.
If action is what you are looking for, you may want to check out Jackie Chan’s “Around the world in 80 days.”
