Synopsis

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.

Dove Review

“Transporter 2” is an OK action movie where Bruce Lee meets MacGyver. The main character is portrayed as a gentle man on the outside who fiercely uses his martial arts skills to single-handedly gain victory over the bad guys. It is actually a fairly violent movie, much of which is not filtered out. A barely dressed woman wielding machine guns, a man breaking another guy’s neck, a knife stabbed into a guy’s leg and a man with a bloody, broken nose are a few of the scenes to be aware of.

The main female character walks around with a bra-like top, bare midriff, and tiny shorts or underwear throughout the entire movie. Images like that as well as the violence do not make “Transporter 2” a family friendly movie by any stretch of the imagination and therefore doesn’t receive the Dove Family-Approved Seal.
