The Transporter Refueled (6/10)

by Tony Medley

Runtime 97 minutes.

OK for children.

Talk about your mindless entertainment! The acting in this thing is worse than deplorable. Ray Stevenson, who plays Frank Martin, Sr., is the only person who could be called a professional. The rest are laughable.

Itís a revenge film about four women, led by Anna (Loan Chabanol), who were forced into prostitution at a young age who are out for revenge against their pimp in chief, Yuri (Yuri Kolokolnikov), the guy who bought them and handled them for 15 years.

Anna hires Frank Martin (Ed Skrein) who is a driver who takes special assignments. Heís not a guy to trifle with, though. He can vanquish 10-15 armed tough guys at once without a weapon, which he shows he can do in the opening.

The story is as bad as the acting and the script. But the French Riviera locale is beautiful and the story is just stupid enough to hold your interest with one ridiculous fight followed by an absurd car chase, repeated over and over.

There is one scene in which Frank Sr. has to take a bullet out of one of the women that is hilarious camp (Iím not sure thatís what they were intending, but itís the way it comes across).

Had the acting been any better, the film wouldnít have worked. But itís clear that nobody is taking anything seriously in this thing and it is somehow strangely enjoyable.
