Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

A ridiculous and confusing mess of overwritten dialogue, nonsensical plot contrivances and impossible, overlong action sequences.

Too much action brings the movie to a dead standstill. Why don't directors understand that? Why don't they know that wall-to-wall action makes a movie less interesting -- less like drama, more like a repetitive video game?

The title character is far too good for the movie he inhabits

The last 40-odd minutes are essentially one fight, pushed to the point of absurdity.

While the ensemble player who gained notice in Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch has the bod, he's unlikely to become a household name on the basis of his first starring vehicle.

This jittery junk is palatable in some doses but for the most part the adrenaline surge teeters off to the point that The Transporter in theory is just another bombastic excuse for targeting the testosterone-driven masses with its showy banality.

The action sequences here don't have the kinetic oomph required in such a mindless effort.

So gloriously ridiculous and fast moving that you keep trying to convince yourself that the filmmakers were making a parody. They had to be. Right?

...plays like an extended trailer for a movie, a highlights reel, with all the boring stuff, like talk, left out.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Mais uma vez, Luc Besson (que aqui exerce as funções de produtor e roteirista) ignora a narrativa em prol da ação inconseqüente (e inócua, já que ninguém sequer sangra). O que aconteceu ao responsável pelo ótimo O Profissional?

| Original Score: 1/5

It's also clear from the start that The Transporter is running purely on adrenaline, and once the initial high wears off, the film's shortcomings start to shine through.

Routine and rather silly.

Unlike his directorial efforts, La Femme Nikita and The Professional, The Transporter lacks Besson's perspective as a storyteller.

And with Jet Li or Jean Reno nowhere to be found, what's the point of bringing Yuen and Besson together at last?
