Transporter 3 

Directed by the wonderfully named Olivier Megaton from a script by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, Transporter 3 seems to have been written by taking the first film’s screenplay and crossing out the names of the supporting characters and substituting new ones. Add a few new stunts and fights, and you’ve got the movie. The film is Jason Statham’s third go-around as driver-for-hire Frank Martin, and once again Frank has to deliver a package for some bad guys. It’s no surprise said package is an attractive young red-headed girl (Natalya Rudakova) who also doubles as Frank’s love interest. His job is to keep her safe from a group of thugs out to get both her and him. That’s the primary plot. Aside from Statham’s undeniable screen charisma, Transporter 3 is a pretty typical Grade B action film. It’s got just enough plot to string together the action scenes and is full of utterly ridiculous moments, but it does deliver the goods if you like car chases and karate chops. HH 1/2
