Overview

Driver and muscle for hire Frank Martin returns in this sequel to the 2002 box-office hit. Frank Martin Jason Statham is a former special-forces officer who will transport anything anywhere for a price, and his latest assignment is acting as chauffeur for Jack Billings Hunter Clary, the young son of politician Jefferson Billings Matthew Modine, who has garnered no small amount of controversy for his aggressive efforts to stamp out the trade in illegal drugs. One day, Frank is to take Jack to the doctor for a checkup while his mother, Audrey Amber Valletta, sets up a birthday party for the tyke. However, Jack's doctor is not who he appears to be -- he's actually Dimitri Jason Flemyng, a Russian agent well versed in viruses who works with criminal kingpin Gianni Alessandro Gassman. After a long and hard-fought chase with Frank, the bad guys get ahold of little Jack and hold him for ransom. The parents comply with their monetary demands and soon have their son back at home -- but little do they know that the boy has secretly been injected with a deadly and easily spread virus, which the terrorists hope to spread to the boy's powerful father and other politicians whom Jefferson will soon be addressing at a public event. When Frank learns what has happened to young Jack, he sets out to find the culprits -- and the antidote that will save the boy and all others who have been exposed to the virus from dying a painful death -- though his foes have stacked the deck so that it looks as if Frank has been complicit in the crime.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Unlikely action film star Jason Statham, who moves rather effortlessly from heroes to heavies in choosing his screen roles, returns as mercenary transport specialist Frank Martin in this wildly improbable but entertaining sequel. This time around, Frank is acting as driver for a powerful government official Matthew Modine whose young son Hunter Clary has been targeted for kidnapping by narco-terrorists. Initially reluctant to get involved, Frank is moved by his fondness for both the boy and his mother Amber Valletta, who begs the former soldier of fortune to rescue the lad. From that point there's barely a let-up in the action, which includes some of the wildest fight scenes and chases ever committed to celluloid. Director Louis Leterrier, who assisted Luc Besson on the original Transporter, relies on the exaggerated visual stylings of Hong Kong action specialists, choreographing extravagant martial arts fight sequences along the well-established lines of the early Jackie Chan and his heir apparent, Jet Li. The fights and chases manage to violate practically all the laws of physics, but why quibble about minor details? Once the adrenaline starts pumping you won't be concerned about such trivial matters. Simply plotted and unapologetically manic, Transporter 2 moves like a runaway train -- and once onboard, you won't be able to catch your breath till it runs out of steam.
All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Jason Statham scores another one for the world of outrageous, high-action cinema with the five-fisted blow to action lover's temples everywhere, Transporter 2. Ramping up the absurdity, the sequel pushes the envelope a bit more than the original, but ends up ratcheting up the fun factor in the process. There's still a juicy villain and plenty of scenes with "The Transporter" fighting crowds of guys with everything in sight (the best being the fire hose scene), but this sequel isn't happy until it kicks it into ludicrous gears as feats of wacky stunts race across the screen in various degrees of implausibility. Writer/producer Luc Besson continues his streak of satisfying mid-budget fight flicks, only this time, his Euro sensibilities are applied to bright and sunny Miami. The change in setting helps the sequel escape any kind of rehash and adds to the mouth-watering mix with jet skis and close-quartered fighting on a speedboat. By the time the wild CG inches its way to the end, the viewer is either eating it up with a wooden spoon or stuck focusing on all the things they could have done other than watching this caffeinated fluff. Either way, audiences are in for a wild case of deadly serums, smooth suits, and a nasty Cuban villain with bad teeth -- and that, in a nutshell, is Transporter 2.

    The Best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1 quatzillion % of a movie This is my favorite movie ever. The first one they don't have any good cars in the first Transporter besides, there is a code number for this car in Transporter 2. It is a faster car than the car that Frank Martin use in Transporter 1. The code number for the car is "19". The car's name is "Audi A8 W-12

    Still liked the first one better

    I really liked the first Transporter and was kind of disappointed with the plot line in this one. The action sequences were good, but the movie still lacked as a whole. Wouldn't purchase it, but it's not a bad rental.
