Just like the other films in Statham's signature franchise, Frank Martin is given a job but winds up killing his boss for being a major dick. Flashy editing and harebrained action overrules logic but there are some nice if silly action beats. Highlight is a truck chase in the second half. The redhead Russian girl who's Statham's love interest this go-around is very annoying though. Very much the load and not very smart.

The transporter is once again on the job. Not only does he have to deliver the package, but he's been electronically rigged to his car so if he tries to run, he dies. This movie has one of the worst fight sense and action sense in any other action movie.

Better directed but unfortunately the most serious of the trilogy. Frank Martin (Jason Statham) and Valentina (Natalya Rudakova) needs to deliver a package. If they go far from the car, the bracelets attached to them would explode. Had a more ruthless and chilling antagonist. The relationship with Frank and Valentina was boring, cheesy and awkward (knowing the character of Statham from the first two from the franchise). Screenplay was the worst from the franchise though the soundtrack here has improved. Amazing the way he maneuvered himself using a bike and the car over/thru the train.

If this is the best of the three I'm glad I didn't see the other two. This was an average movie at best. Horribly directed. For example the fight scenes weren't sequences, they were : do one action, change the camera, do another action, change the camera. etc. There was seeminlgly no chemistry between the two protaganists and the main worry of the story was if he got more than 75 feet from the car he'd blow up. 75 feet isn't very far and there were definitely times when he's .. ahem chasing down a car on a peddle bike.. that he got furher away than that. The stunt sequences throw physics out the window. I don't mind outlandish stunts. In fact in movies like Casino Royale and the parkour chase they can be amazing. The only good thing about this movie is the main villain. Even then though …

An action movie anticipated from many many fans, including myself.
I decided it was worth going to 'the big screen' for it so I took a friend and persuaded her into watching an action for once in her life. And then later on, I felt like I betrayed her.
Transporter 3 didn't offer anything new. At least not in the good way.
While in previous movies, Frank Martin, has some damn good common sense, in this movie he falls victim of .. yes, you guessed it, 'love'. I wasn't impressed in the least when half way through the movie, our dear Frank bumps uglies with Valentina, a girl he knows absolutely nothing about except that she's wearing a short sparkly dress and that she likes eating. A lot. She also likes to get stoned, drunk and then pee in public.
Aside from being …

If seeing "Transporter 3" did not go a long way toward mending fences with the dear friend from whom I've become somewhat estranged, then there is nothing else I can do.
First of all, this is not the kind of movie I normally see, particularly when there are so many other movies showing (especially this time of year). The action genre is my least favorite. And when you start adding numbers to the ends of their titles, I usually don't go near them. What's more, I never saw Transporter 1 or 2; what if I'm lost with the story?!? (Ha, ha.)
I suppose I can admit that this one has some exciting scenes, but they angered me by appearing right when I was about to doze. It's probably not healthy, but everything about this movie and my experience of seeing it angers me. Why, oh why, I …
