Is a lot of fun, and I enjoyed it in all its ludicrous devices, and idiocy...
Armed with a myriad of gravity (and logic) defying set pieces...

"Transporter 2" is cheap, shiny, indefensible junk, a Hot Wheels hot rod encased in a glossy plastic blister pack. But come on -- you know you want it.
Besides a fun script and never-a-dull-moment directing, Jason Statham really deserves praise for his screen presence. Expect mindless action and have a great time.
Better than the original.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Transporter 2 is so lightweight and frivolous, it makes one of Roger Moore's Bond epics look like Crime and Punishment.
| Original Score: 5/10
I'm pretty sure Transporter 2 is the dumbest movie I've ever seen.
| Original Score: 1/5
There is absolutely nothing subtle about "Transporter 2." But if you like your action movies to be ACTION movies, this one is fast-paced, unapologetic escapism.
| Original Score: B
Undemanding punters are guaranteed 90 minutes of dopey, derivative and gloriously disposable entertainment.
| Original Score: 3/5
Sure, it's blissfully energetic, but it's also exhaustingly idiotic.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
If you're at all picky about the laws of physics or if you liked the superior first film, I do not recommend seeing this film sober.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Much like a James Bond movie, only more playful and entertaining than that series has managed in many years, Transporter 2 isn't a continuation of the last one, it's another action enterprise unto itself.
The ending sinks the enterprise (both literally and figuratively) with bad FX and subpar action-movie one-liners.
All action, all the time, with no pauses to catch your breath, or, more significantly, to figure out what's going on.
| Original Score: 2/5
It's not a bad sequel, but the original was, well, original. There are some overplayed elements, but the action is snappy and the danger is credible.
The car chases are fierce, the fight sequences are appropriately staged and shot, and Statham's allure as the title character is undeniable.
It's punishment that looks like pleasure.
the hand-to-hand combat scenes are the best of the year
Fast-paced sequel featuring British B-movie action guy Jason Statham delivers what it promises, and not too much more.
