"The Transporter" holds a 54 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. James Berardinelli of ReelViews says the film's opening is "outrageous."
The film opens with an amazing thing: a car chase that isn't boring (it's so outrageously over-the-top that it can't help but be fun). Overall, The Transporter will likely satisfy anyone on the lookout for a mindless, cheesy action flick. The Transporter's destination may be ordinary, but, to get there, this film moves.
The movie is cranked up somewhere between stylish and proudly stupid, dusted with sunniness from Amy Smart (as Chev’s sleepy girlfriend) — and guaranteed to be out of your system by the time the lights come up.
