The Transporter Refueled 
It's bad but it never went full bad.
2/4 stars

You know it's a bad sign when Jason Statham himself says no to another Transporter movie, and it was the best decision he ever made.

Transporter Refueled is about the technology and how it's upgraded but the rules are the same: never change the deal, no names and never open the package. Frank is the most highly-skilled transporter on the market - and when Anna and her three stunning sidekicks hire him, he finds the deal turned sour when he finds out they have kidnapped his father in order for him to take down a Russian human-trafficking ring. But Frank will stop at nothing to get his father back - no matter who stands in his way.

Transporter Refueled was a movie that I was totally unaware off, because I literally never knew they made another one, and I just found out about it just a few weeks before the films release. I originally was going to skip this one just like some of the movies that been release recently, but then I quickly realize that I was behind on a lot of the recent releases and I'm not just talking about actions movie but decent ones. So I thought "What the heck", and went to see Transporter Refueled with an open mind. Seriously, how bad can it be? well... it was pretty bad but I didn't really hate it as I thought I would.

Let me just start off with the positives first: This movie so bad that it's kind of hilarious to watch. I was never bored watching the movie just because of the action scenes, and just the overall movie itself that was so laughably bad that it was pretty entertaining. Ed Skerin didn't do a terrible job in the role as I thought he was going to be, but Jason Statham owed that role and that's not going to change. And that's it for positives.

Now for the bad: Now the Transporter movies dose have it's stupid and ridiculous moments, and the movies are aware of this and so is this one, but this movie takes that to the next level. The movie at times wants you take some scenes seriously and it absolutely dose not work at all, and it doesn't even work as it was set up so poorly.

All the characters in the movie came off bald and just there for the sake of it (The actors I mean).

The editing in this movie is the basic quick cut action scenes we've seen before in previous movies that have no clue how to film it's action. Why can't we just have a good action scene without all this messy cut and paste editing we see a lot in action movies today. Transporter 3 had some awful actions scenes but after seeing this movie I think the third films looks pretty good right now.

Overall Transporter Refueled is a terrible, terrible movie. But I'm also surprised that I didn't hate this movie as I thought I would. If you watch this movie as a comedy it actually would work, Because this movie is filled with: cartoonist dialogue, crappy quick cut editing, and lifeless characters. But keep in mind that this movie could have been much worse and I'm pretty glad it never went full bad.
