Critic Reviews for Transporter 3
The flashy editing gets on one's wick and no one's going to win an Oscar - but, really, who's complaining? This is straight-up fisticuff fun.
Usually stuff like this gets mercifully relegated to the 2 A.M. slot on HBO next to most recent Steven Seagal masterpiece. But The Transporter series has managed to gather enough of an audience for Lionsgate to inflict it on us every so often.
The first film was slick, the second one silly, but at least we knew what was going on during those action beats.
Audience Reviews for Transporter 3
I didn't expect much at all, except some good fight scenes, a loose plot and action. It delivered. If you have seen the first two films, you know what to expect. It's more of the same.
It's definitely my favorite entry in the series, managing to be the most serious and realistic in terms of storyline and action. Jason Statham proves himself to be the most powerful man to ever drive a car professionally, taking down anything in his warpath. I loved the addition of Natalya Rudakova, making for Frank's best love interest. Robert Knepper is also the best villain in the series, even though he doesn't do much physically he happens to be the most intimidating. It's a rare event in which the trilogy ends on a high note, this certainly does.
not a bad movie but not a good one. it's got a simple plot and not much of a story but a lot of action. it's entertaining but it doesn't work nearly as well compared to the crank series which is far better. C+
