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 director of the third Transporter movie has given himself the name 'Olivier Megaton.' Too easy, you say? Very well. Make your own 'bomb' joke.

Although Megaton's CGI fight scenes are as chopped up and incomprehensible as the current norm, he mostly avoids the Queasy-Cam and uses a stable camera while only the action moves. How about that.

The most frustrating entry into a series that has never set the bar terribly high.

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 'what not to do' guide when making an action film.

Smash-up action sequel is a little rough for young teens.

A perfunctory action film which drives around in noisy circles but goes nowhere.

[It] could never be deemed a 'good movie' but it's one of those bad movies so entertaining and fun it's hard to fully condemn it.

The story is both unwieldy and nonsensical, spending, as it does, far too much time on the annoying Ukrainian, complicated plot twists and dialogue.

An action franchise in motion tends to stay in motion, long after logic or box office should bring it to a screeching halt.

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

I had less problems with the characters and more trouble with the actual action, which felt really antiseptic to me.

Transporter 3 is built for action not Oscars, so things like physics and common sense donā(TM)t apply here.

A stiflingly dull and useless caper that's all the more aggravating when you recall how giddy the original film was.

This one is for fans only.

Like a collection of leftovers from the first two movies. Statham's heart doesn't really seem to be in it any more.
