  • Summary: 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.

    Statham isn't an actor who coasts, not even in a recklessly enjoyable picture like Transporter 3. He does the work, so we don't have to: His Frank Martin is the personification of pleasure without guilt.

    Overall, the production has the polish and pace that producer/co-writer Luc Besson's work is known for. Any complaints about the lack of substance are pointless.
  3. 63
    A perfectly acceptable brainless action thriller.
  4. If you're going to a no-frills action film, though, at least you want the action to be entertaining, which is where Transporter 3 falls down.
  5. 42
    For those disappointed in the grim, gritty feel of the latest James Bond movie and who long for the absurdity of the Roger Moore-era entries, Transporter 3, ought to fit the bill.
  6. 40
    Incoherent and inconsistent, this is a step back for Statham in his quest to become more than a cult figure.
  7. The fight scenes are lackluster and the plot is needlessly complicated. If you're making an action film that centers on fast cars and fast women, it's usually best to keep the rest of the story simple.

    The accent from Rudakova was great addition to the movie and coupled with Statham's fighting Transporter 3 deserves a great review.

    Now, Transporter 3 got me wondering- is it good? Well, sort of. The action expands and Statham is pumped up. I LOVED the first two, and this one doesn't dissapoint either. But it has many flaws that make it unwatchable. But if you are a fan like me, you'll love T3. Jason's back baby! Expand

    I enjoyed the action scenes, but the dialogue was pretty horrible. It seemed the only real appeal to this movie is the action scenes and the plot was somewhat ignored Expand

    An OK attempt but the third film really didn't add anything new. It would have been better if it wasn't actually made. The story and action and humour are nowhere near the other two films though. Expand

    Ce qu'il y a de bien avec Le Transporteur, c'est qu'on peut s'attendre à un scénario inexistant mais à un déballage de séquences de bastons et de courses-poursuites effrenées, et en apprécier ces faibles atouts. De ce fait, on arrive à avoir un divertissement de série B(esson) de qualité, qui divertit grandement pendant 1h30. Avec ce troisième opus, la donne a malheureusement diminué, à cause d'un montage trop frénétique (gâchant le plaisir que l'on avait à regarder les scènes d'action)et une histoire romantique plutôt gerbante qui plombe le punch typique de la saga. Divertissant mais loin d'égaliser les deux épisodes précédents. Expand

    EPIC. FAIL. Seriously, one of the worst movies I have seen in my life. The CG was awful, the dialogue was AWFUL, and the action scenes (especially anything with cars involved) were laughably unrealistic. You know a movie is terrible when they have to fast forward the car chase to make it more exciting. Expand
