The Transporter 2

I should’ve known what I was getting into; the only scene I can vividly recall from the first Transporter is when Jason Statham deflects a surface to air rocket with a serving tray. Transporter 2 is pretty much the same thing, check your brain at the door and get ready for car chases and prop fighting.

I can accept when characters beat on each other senseless with pipes while busting through walls and falling off buildings only to get up, straighten their tie and shake the dust off their jacket but what I can’t accept is total disregard for physics. The Transporter shows a total lack of respect towards gravity and inertia, which I think when done to an extreme that they were done in this movie it tends to take you out of the movie and leaves you shaking your head.

People are starting to mention Jason Statham as a replacement for Pierce Brosnan as James Bond which I find absolutely ridiculous. Frank Martin is James Bond but without the cool gadgets and product placement. The Transporter looks to be spun into an on going franchise so I can’t see him jumping to Bond. Transporter 3 will probably be out in the summer of 2007 and I’ll probably go see it and I’ll only remember the ridiculous fight scene on the plane from Transporter 2.
