Transporter 3

If you've seen Transporter 1 or Transporter 2, you've pretty much seen Transporter 3. The stunts this time around are possibly even dumber, as are a few other things, and Jason Statham might take off his shirt a few more times, but it's the same thing: fast driving, physics-defying derring-do, and a really dumb plot.

Of course, all those things are the reasons people, including me, watch these movies, so I'm not criticizing. After all, one of the stunts has Statham driving his car off a bridge onto the top of a moving train, which is almost as good as having a guy jump onto the top of the train and run around. James Reasoner, take note.

And that car. Can it take punishment, or what? Flooding is nothing to a car like that.

Add to everything else the delicately handled theme of a father's love for his daughter and the environment, and you have another classic.

I just wrote a scene where a guy jumps a horse off of a train. Does that count for anything?

I like all those Transporter movies a lot.

Heck, yeah! That's what action films are all about. Gravity/physics-defying, senseless, and 0% logic! It's all about being hot-blooded, violent and driving awesome cars. I prefer the first Transporter though, since it actually showcased Statham's raw but awesome acting talent.
