    TRANSPORTER 3

    English - (18SG) - 4 December 2008
    Distributor: LionsGate

    Running Time:
    approx. 100 minutes

    Director:
    Oliver Megaton

    Producer: Luc Besson, Steve Chasman

    Writer: Luc Besson, Robert Mark Kamen

    Casts: Jason Statham, Francois Berleand, Robert Knepper, Natalya Rudakova, Eriq Ebouaney

    Plot: Jason Statham returns as hardman Frank Martin, an ex-Special Force agent where his duty includes delivering packages without questioning. In this third instalment, Frank who has just relocated to Paris, awakes to find himself with a bomb strapped to his wrist - one which threatens to blow up should he try to remove it.

    My Verdict:
    Green Tea says:

    Jason Statham returns to his signature role of Frank Martin, a delivery man who delivers without questions. As compared to the second installment, he no longer protect a kid but now move back to his little profile job in France. Back to his job, something that I have known about from Frank himself that curiosity does kill
    In this movie, the new action movie by Statham himself resembles so much of the elements you used to see a month prior in the cinemas too - Quantum of Solace. This is an action that requires a lot of energy and high impacity of explosive kung fu style of action - something from QoS! However, the lack in generic stunt and skills have dampened this movie to rival the James Bond saga.

    Another QoS you can really see in Transporter 3 is the relationship between Frank and the Ukranian girl - like again! So what's with the affair of a Caucasian and a Ukranian nowadays? So it is a trend I guess! Also from QoS is the sort of relationship between Frank and the police inspector, does it resembles those of M and James themselves? But these similarities are more appreciable, less complex, but easily fatigue as compared to those in James Bond!

    The starpower again is lacking with only Jason Statham been the only notable familiar face you have seen. This year he done well with The Bank Job, mediocrely with Death Race and now much slightly better with his comfort zone of Frank Martin's role.

    If you are expecting more pump of adrenaline from this installment, you should lowered that expectation. I believe this will not deliver much although it would be a fun case to ride through. This movie seems lacking in energy. No more much fancy non-sense action act around but maybe you should try without much anticipation.
