The first Transporter film was responsible for putting now pretty well known action star Jason Statham on the map. The guy has amazing martial arts skills, a great face for the genre and is a moderately decent actor.
I thought the first Transporter movie starring Jason Statham was silly, but a huge blast to watch. I found the sequel to be even more silly (ok, ridiculous) and less fun – so I’m hoping that Transporter 3 will reverse that trend.
We haven’t covered the film much here at Screen Rant so here’s a bit of a “catch up” post with the final (UK) poster for the film, some new images plus the latest trailer.
I don’t know anything about French director Olivier Megaton (can that be his real name?) but the screenplay was written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, who both wrote the first and second films. Trivia: They both also wrote the amazing film The Fifth Element, which was also directed by Besson.
Check ‘em all out and let us know what you think.
