Transporter Refueled

Enjoyed all the joyride scenes - almost similar to the movie fast & the furious! Thumbs-up!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (5 ):

On paper, it might have been an attractive idea for Luc Besson to resurrect the Transporter series, but without Jason Statham in the lead, and given a general carelessness, the movie is out of gas. Instead of Statham, THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED gives us Skrein -- recognizable mainly due to a few episodes of Game of Thrones -- as Frank Martin. He's handsome, he's fit, and he has some chin scruff, but he has none of Statham's personality, and he never comes to life on screen.

Of course, he's not helped much by the lazy screenplay or by Camille Delamarre's hopelessly lost direction. Frank never seems to be looking at the road while he's driving, and the overly choreographed fight scenes have thugs simply walking into his punches. Perhaps worse, in a movie about eradicating prostitution, is the fact that there are dozens of scantily clad women objectified and on gratuitous display. In this entire mess, only Stevenson, as Frank Sr., has any charm. This is one for the scrap heap.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
