The Transporter Refueled Movie Review

I have to admit to something that most movie fans will not like that much and that is that I haven’t actually seen any of The Transporter movies all the way through, however knowing the previous star and the few snippets I have seen I knew what to expect from the franchise going into the movie, and that was mindless action.

Guess what it didn’t disappoint on the first thing that came to mind the action and violence in this movie were great, some of the scenes you were left there thinking did he really need to do that.  However, the majority of the scenes made sense.  The mindless action does sell this movie a little short however because it does have a bit of a story to it, but I wouldn’t say it has as many twist and turns than Hitman Agent 47.  The story itself was basic, but you never knew quite where it was going to end, and whether the lead characters were going to get together or not.

The acting for me was well done and if I am honest they did such a good job, I don’t think the franchise was really hurt by not having Jason Statham in it.  Although there were stars in the movie that I had seen before I can’t say they were big blockbuster actors and for that reason I thought they did a really good job.

The story was well put together in my mind but can’t help feel that it could have had more in it because although holding out on a few relationships it didn’t really have much else.  The problem with this is that it didn’t leave you asking any questions after the movie.  Which I like not only from a movie imagination point of view but it also gives you something to talk about on reviews and with others.

Overall I would give this movie 7/10 because I really enjoyed it and it was an easy going movie where you didn’t have to read the lines.  If you’re at a loose end and want a movie full of action and not much thinking this is definitely the movie for you.  How did you find the movie?
