Transporter 3 movie

    After enjoying 1 & 2 I was really looking the third installment and for
    the first 30 minutes this movie lived up to expectations, then it
    stalled and never recovered.

    Int he first two movies there are some excellent fight scenes
    throughout, in this movie, there are 2, both in the first 30 minutes,
    and the direction and editing do detract from them. It less like
    watching an action movie and more like a music video in parts.

    The female lead starts as being petulant and annoying, and then gets
    worse. The is a pointless sex scene midway through which I think was
    there as a MacGuffin but fails and only takes from the characters.

    Had this been the first in the series, there may never have been a
    sequel, as it is, it's a poor follow up to the previous movies, lacking
    in action and direction. Pity really.

    Frank 'The Transporter' Martin

    'Transporter 3' has had a raw deal. Like most of Luc Besson's action
    flicks the reviews have been quite bad. I don't listen to reviews
    really and if I like the look of a film I'll see it.' Transporter 3' is
    beyond brilliant though there's brilliance in it. The fights are as
    good as always, inventive, violent and fast-paced. Jason Statham is
    good as always in his signature role and there's a lot of fun to be had
    with the film. Robert Knepper is the best of the villains. Natalya
    Rudakova is not exactly a good actress but she is very beautiful and
    does well enough. Certain people hated her in the film and said she
    ruined it for them but I didn't mind her at all. I thought her and
    Statham had genuine chemistry. There's also a superbly done push ned
    chase (slang for push bike). Overall not as good as the first one but a
    lot better than the second, 'Transporter 3' is a fine climax to a good
    trilogy. ***/*****

    Not as great as its predecessors

    *** This review may contain spoilers ***

    Transporter 3 is the third installment of the franchise. Transporter 3
    didn't seem to have that same magic and tone as its prequels, though
    that isn't necessarily a bad thing. This one felt very different than
    Transporter 2. Transporter 3 had less action, more plot but its plot
    wasn't that believable and sort of ridiculous. It was still fun and
    entertaining though. Many critics and reviews made point that the plot
    didn't make much sense, and I somewhat agree. Here's why: The bad guy-
    Johnson (Robert Knepper), is forcing the Transporter, Frank Martin, to
    transport a girl named Valentina (Natalya Rudakova) from one country to
    another. Johnson is present when Martin leaves with the girl. Johnson
    is also present when Martin delivers the girl. So why exactly did
    Johnson need the Transporter in the first place? And in this film,
    Frank's "package" ends up being Valentina (he doesn't know what the
    package is before doing the mission, then suddenly notices, and she
    doesn't tell him). One thing I really disliked what Valentino, her
    character was far too annoying and had too much dialogue with Frank. It
    took away the suspense from Frank's character.

    This movie is not boring. There are very nice stunts in this, such as a
    neat bicycle chase with Frank on a bicycle doing all these stunts
    trying to catch of to the bad guys, a sequence with Frank driving his
    car on top of a train, and a very exciting scene with him crashing his
    car underwater yet escaping and bringing his car back on the ocean (it
    was a very clever way how he got it back). Once again, Jason Statham is
    a splendid action hero and does a great job in this film. In my
    opinion, the film wasn't that bad but not as good as the previous two.
    It was slightly worse than the second.
