Every bit the over-the-top action extravaganza it appears to be, and the glee of its knowing preposterousness makes it easy to overlook its general mindlessness.

Jason Statham uses his smoldering charisma to great effect.

This gang mastermind, gym body Italian import psycho neck wringer Gianni (Alessandro Gassman, son of famed Vittorio), has concocted likely the most convoluted mass murder scheme ever to hit the theaters.

A serviceable Euro-trash action extravaganza, with a decent sense of humor and plenty of things that go boom - handguns, BMWs and seaside chateaus.

Statham impresses in a movie that is simultaneously the best (the fight scenes) and worst (everything else) action movie of the year. Destined for drunken Friday night rental heaven.

British actor Jason Statham injects The Transporter with a healthy dose of clout, charisma and kickboxing skill.

While it certainly has more gunplay and kung-fu hijinks ... it is ultimately less entertaining, despite the likeable leads.

If Hollywood's looking for a new action hero, then Jason Statham's their man.

Some heaped praise on 007's most recent adventure Die Another Day but the CGI free thrills which The Transporter offers are right up there with it.

The film's biggest asset, surprisingly enough, is Jason Statham, who shows terrific potential as an action hero, and could easily match wits with actors like Vin Diesel or Jean Claude Van Damme.

It's still enjoyably watchable and surprisingly unpredictable, with just enough silliness to keep us laughing at it, not with it.

Remember the kind of movie we were hoping "Ecks vs. Sever" or "xXx" was going to be? This is it.

Sublime locations along the Riviera provide the eye candy, while Jason Statham is an engaging blend of Bruce Willis muscle, attitude & dryness, and Jackie Chan martial arts with mind-snapping inventiveness.

Good car chases, great fight scenes, and a distinctive blend of European, American and Asian influences.

The chases and explosions get a little (well, more than a little) ludicrous, but the cool premise is still very cool.
