Transporter 2 ★½ 2005 (PG-13

Second in what appears will be a series. This time Frank (Statham) is in Miami, working as a driver for one very wealthy family's young son, Jack (Clary). Jack is kidnapped in a sinister plot to bilk his par ents out of beaucoup bucks. Powerful dad (Modine) and distraught mom (Valletta) are really just along for the ride. Even hardcore action fans might balk at some of the implausible scenes (one involving a jet ski on a highway is particularly goofy), though the commitment to jampacking action into the film is impressive. Plot is eerily similar to “Man on Fire” although the execution is not. 88m/C DVD, Bluray Disc, UMD . US FR Jason Statham, Alessandro Gassman, Amber Valletta, Matthew Modine, Jason Flemyng, Keith David, Kate Nauta, Francois Berleand, Jeffrey Chase, Hunter Clary; D: Louis Leterrier; W: Luc Besson, Robert Mark Kamen; C: Mitchell Amundsen; M: Alexandre Azaria.
