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.
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
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.
Slowing the pace for romance is also a bad idea because it gives the audience the chance to spot plot holes bigger than Iceland's debt. But when he sticks to car chases, explosions and chest-kicking action, Statham delivers.
Enjoyably ridiculous thriller, in which plot logic and characterisation are gleefully ignored in favour of jaw-dropping action sequences, superb fight scenes and Statham's brilliantly deadpan performance.
