Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (8):

Wild and nonsensical, Transporter 2 delivers a specific sort of pleasure, mostly by way of observing pain inflicted deftly. Like its clever and cheeky precursor, the sequel boasts elegant choreography by Corey Yuen and a crisp performance by Statham, even though his character remains defiantly undeveloped.

As producer Luc Besson has demonstrated in his broad array of action films (from Subway to The Fifth Element to Unleashed), the genre's point is style. Heroes and villains come and go (and are in the end interchangeable), but the look is forever. Frank is precise and resourceful, attentive to details. He keeps his promises, he's relentlessly neat. And he takes just-visible-enough delight in punishing the ugliness of others.

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.
