Former British international diver Jason Statham is back again as Frank Martin - together with his car, a somewhat highly-powered and armored Audi W8 W12. Here, Frank is unwillingly pressured into transporting a package; accompanied by a lady called Valentina Vasilev (stunningly beautiful freckled newcomer Natalya Rudakova), who later proves to be the kidnapped daughter of Ukrainian VIP Leonid Vasilev (Jeroen Krabbe). Both Frank and Valentina have devices fixed to their wrists that will explode if either of them ventures more than 75 feet away from the car.
Inspector Tarconi (Francois Bereland) is once again in there as well, and the end result is a hard-driving action drama which - like the previous two Transporter pictures - never makes the mistake of taking itself too seriously. The well-lensed screenplay takes us from Marseilles, through Munich and Budapest, to Odessa on the Black Sea, before its quite literally explosive climax!
Those with a good memory may remember Jeroen Krabbe as the treacherous Dr Charles Nichols in the 1993 Harrison Ford classic, The Fugitive.
Verdict: a good evening's light entertainment for afficionados of the action genre.
Frank Martin has been pressured into transporting Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of Leonid Vasilev, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency for the Ukraine, from Marseilles through Stuttgart and Budapest until he ends up in Odessa on the Black Sea.
Along the way, with the help of Inspector Tarconi, Frank has to contend with the people who strong armed him to take the job, agents sent by Vasilev to intercept him, and the general non-cooperation of his passenger.
Despite Valentina’s cynical disposition and his resistance to get involved, Frank and Valentina fall for each other, while escaping from one life-threatening situation after another.
