Transporter 2 softens the formula a bit, but still delivers the kind of vivid, pounding action that B-movie fans crave.
Transporter 2 bursts with outrageous driving stunts, sublimely absurd fight scenes, and a sense of humor that ties it together.
| Original Score: B
In essence, it's more of the same.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Is there a point at which an action film becomes so completely unrealistic, it crosses into the realm of fantasy and becomes something else?
| Original Score: 1/4
They've gone back to the well only to discover that most of the good stuff was used up the first time around.
| Original Score: C+
The only one who plays it straight is Statham, and his cool machismo borders on camp.
| Original Score: 2/5
I don't mind exaggerated action sequences (in fact, I kind of like them) but Transporter 2 doesn't surround them with anything else.
| Original Score: 2/4
The original Transporter was a surprise hit in 2002, and this second installment will not disappoint.
| Original Score: 7.5/10
there's no denying that Statham is once again so cool that bad plot, bad physics and bad acting by the supporting cast are very easily forgotten.
| Original Score: 2/4
..if it had the gumption to elevate its marketable value and challenge the notion of not being just another brainless and bombastic entry into the "crash and bash" sweepstakes
A vehicle for Statham to drive fast cars and beat the hell out of people, TRANSPORTER 2 provides a much-needed fix for action fans stuck in the late summer doldrums.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
If you actually go into this picture attempting to find any common sense in its plotline, you might want to have your head examined afterwards...
| Original Score: 6/10
How well does the film succeed in what it seeks to accomplish? Well enough that I probably won't mind a 'Transporter 3.'
| Original Score: 3/4
An embarrassment of giggles.
...the plot has some crucially unclear exposition, and the stunt concepts are insanely implausible...but, somehow, that doesn't stop the whole from being absurdly pleasurable
Besson doesn't fiddle with the first movie's formula -- impossible car chases punctuated by impossible martial arts sequences.
Careens wildly off course before finally running out of gas.
Statham still oozes virile charm but his unbelievable feats make him a super hero fantasy character which is not what audiences expect or want
| Original Score: 4/10
In this second lap the brainless busyness and gaudy excess amount to utter overkill...nothing more than pointless speed and empty action.
| Original Score: C-
As lively and as fun as it is unapologetically dumb.
| Original Score: B-
