For fans of Jason Statham and classic carsploitation action films.

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.

Transporter 3 is the cinematic equivalent of cotton candy: a quick sugar rush that melts in your mouth and is forgotten five minutes later.

A preposterous, over the top and entertaining return of Frank Martin, the courier who delivers anything without question. Forget the ludicrous plot and just sit back and enjoy the fight and driving sequences.

Most film trilogies usually drop the ball on the third entry, but if you want to see it done right, check out the fun, unpretentious Transporter 3.

Though director Olivier Megaton exhibits a good bit of that annoyingly jagged editing that's become all the rage in action films, he has the good sense to never cut away from Statham's pecs.

The good thing about Transporter 3 is that you know exactly what to expect. There's reluctant hero Jason Statham, a deadly villain, exotic European locations, car chases, hot action and .. of course there's a girl

With insulting action sequences and a tacked-on love scene, the movie quickly veers into a downward spiral.

As a fan of Statham and the Transporter series, it's a massive disappointment. The story makes no sense, and there aren't even very many fight scenes.

For the most part, the fights and chases are as implausible as the story, but there's an extraordinarily clever escape-from-certain-death bit about 20 minutes from the end that I don't think I've ever seen before.

Silly, imaginative fun.

Incoherent and inconsistent, this is a step back for Statham in his quest to become more than a cult figure.

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.

With its eco-trappings, car chases and fights, the film feels very sub-Quantum Of Solace. The fact that Quantum itself felt very sub-Bourne says even less for Transporter 3. Even if you're a Statham fan, this series is starting to feel tired.

Transporter 3 is a reassuringly beefy thriller in which Jason Statham has to drive very fast across Eastern Europe with a Ukranian beauty queen on the seat beside him. No one, including Jason, has the slightest clue why. Never mind.

Statham is a relatively entertaining action hero - though he is better in the Crank films. The script is by Besson, but the director is Olivier Megaton, whose surname is the most exciting thing about the film.
