Sort of an action adventure about a skinny, bald white guy who kicks butt for hire.

Any good?

Transporter 2 is coming out and it reminded me of the original.

Is the original any good?

IMHO: Garbage. YMMV.

As we always say ... sufficiently entertaining. Just check your brain out at the door. Its a no brainer movie. Just enjoy the stunts, the firepower and the car chases.

Again, DON"T EXPECT ANYTHING PROFOUND out of the story line!

Have a backup movie on hand in case you decide to totally give up on it.

ok if you are unable to move , or have only teletubbies to watch, otherwise I wouldn't waste my time.

I thought the first one was pretty cool. It was a bit far fetched at times, but it was a good movie for the most part. I personally dont watch movies for the realism though, I kinda expect things beyond capability and this movie has that..... I am looking foward to the second one.

The other guys are right thought, the story line is kinda bogus, it is really just a bunch of really cool action scenes. Those scenes, by the way, rock!

Jackie Chan would have been perfect for the role, it's semi slapstick crap, typical jackie chan stuff.

driving stuff is neat, the rest is trash

Save yourself some time: Watch the opening credits, the first driving scene, and then put in a different movie.

I enjoyed it.

Sure, there were loose spots in the plot, but it was a fun movie.

Good martial arts, some shoot-em-up, and general entertainment.

One thing I liked was that they intentionally went for a PG-13 rating. They cut some fight scenes to avoid an R. My daughter (14) enjoys action movies. This was one we could enjoy together.

my friend with the same BMW loves it

First one was good. I really liked it. As with all action flicks, there are some bullshit stunts and the occasional infinite mag, but otherwise really good, except for the Chinese chick who ranks up in the top 10 most annoying damsel-in-distress action chicks to ever be put on screen.

Good for when you are in a "junk movie" mood, kinda like when you crave McDonald's or something.

It's good enough to rent! BTW, how come his character doesn't nail the chick for all that trouble?

Not "good", but fun to watch if your expectations are low.
