This movie falls into three categories:

  • If you saw Transporter and hated it, don't see Transporter 2. The reasons why you probably disliked the first are amplified 10 fold in the sequel.

  • If you saw Transporter and liked it, don't see Transporter 2. You will be dissappointed that they managed to bastardize the sequel to a good movie.

  • If you havn't seen Transporter, go see Transporter 2 first, and then see the original.

I fall into category 2. The plot wasn't very good. The action was okay, but without the cool music and atmosphere and sense of urgency like the first movie. There were a lot of extremely gimmicky and outright preposterous scenes. In one bit, this girl shoots 5-10 shots at a helicopter with her supressed submachine gun and the helicopter explodes into a ball of fire for no apparant reason. In another scene, Frank rips a bomb off the bottom of his car by driving up a ramp, flipping the car over, and scrapping the bottom of his car against a crane hook, only to land upright and in tact moments before the bomb explodes. Scenes like this just make the whole movie seem very hokesy. Oh well.

I get the feeling that Jason Statham is a bad motherfucker.

An overly silly, but somewhat entertaining movie.

Unbelievable but entertaining.

I just watched Mad Max last night and the chases were much more beleivable and much more thrilling.

The tall blonde assasin was the best part of the movie for me.

saw it Tuesday, I liked Transporter 1 so had to see Transporter 2. 2 wasn't as good as 1 but it's the only new Transporter movie out there. Lots of ass kicking and of course, car chases.

If they were to get rid of all the ridiculous CGI scenes maybe the movie would have been better.
The paddle shift murcielago was amazing!

There was a plot? I missed that entirely.

Was there a plot in Transporter?

I thought it was driving-fighting-driving-fightinr............. with talking or a woman thrown in every once in a while.

I enjoyed it just like I enjoyed the first. It will be in my DVD collection.
