Critic Reviews for Transporter: The Series: Season 1

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Action heroes should be superior, not act superior. Action-starved boys probably won't be so picky. Transporter: The Series won't transport them, or even move them.

Viewers willing to settle, or who are unfamiliar with the films, may find the the show entertaining enough to watch.

Audience Reviews for Transporter: The Series: Season 1

½

Luc Besson's The Transporter is adapted for the small screen as a weekly action-adventure television series. Season 1 is presented as a continuation of the films, but is reworked to give courier Frank Martin a team in the form of a private mechanic to fix his cars and an agent to vets his jobs and handle the clients. However, this proves problematic and causes some unevenness, as the characters are always doing separate things and don't really work as a team. And the plots are extremely formulaic, with the job often going wrong, forcing Frank to turn on the client in order to do what's right. There's also an over-arcing plot throughout several episodes about a mysterious women who spies on Frank and tracks his movements. Chris Vance gets behind the wheel as Frank Martin, and while he's fairly good with the action scenes, he doesn't have much charisma and seems miscast. In fact most of the acting is poor, as is the directing. And for some strange reason gratuitous nudity shots are randomly worked into most of the episodes. Season 1 of Transporter: The Series is incredibly clichéd and mediocre, and fails to capture the fun and excitement of the films.
