“It’s like the Count said to his Musketeers, I don’t cling to life sufficiently to fear death.” – Frank Martin
Number of Times Seen – 1 (14 Jul 2021)
Brief Synopsis – Frank is hired by a group of rogue call girls bent on seeking revenge against their former employer.
My Take on it – Despite the fact that Jason Statham chose not to join in on this final (so far) film in the series, this IMHO remains the best of the four films due to the clever and engaging story.
Ed Skrein is slightly annoying as the main character and his methods aren’t depicted as smoothly as Statham did in the previous 3 films.
The plot is cunning and clever and moves in rapid fashion as things are always constantly changing.
The story has some great twists and turns that surprise both the audience and the other characters at the same time yet still remains engaging throughout.
The fight scenes are choreographed quite well and that helps keep things moving at a great pace even when one hopes for Statham, yet constantly keeps getting Skrein doing the same kind of movements.
I liked how for once, the employers are no longer devious thieves and have somewhat of sympathetic background story to help make the viewer care more for them that one might expect.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Instead of a prequel about how Frank Martin first became The Transporter. The film is a reboot which ignores the original trilogy starring Jason Statham, as if they never happened and retells the Transporter story. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
