“The Transporter Refueled” is the latest in a series of movies about a highly skilled driver who, for the right price, can and will drive/deliver anything you want. As long as you don’t break his rules.
In “The Transporter Refueled”, Frank (Ed Skrein) is employed by a woman to simply pick her up, and drop her and her two packages (weighing exactly 104kg) at a predetermined destination. What Frank’s new boss doesn’t tell him is that those two packages are two of her friends (one weighing 55kg and the other weighing 49kg of course). With the deal changing (one of the non-breakable rules), Frank refuses to complete the deal only to be shown evidence that if he didn’t drive then bad things would happen.
What plays out is a typical Transporter movie (this being the fourth in the series) including fast car chases, good-looking women, money, stunts and more fight scenes you can throw a nunchuck at.
The storyline isn’t amazing (you’re not watching it for that). The acting could be better (you’re probably not watching it for that) and the characters might not be relatable (you’re probably not watching it for that either) but if you’ve seen any of the other Transporter movies then you will probably get a kick out of this too.
Being the fourth film in a movie franchise meant that “The Transporter Refueled” had a very hard job to live up to 3 prequels that were all pretty good. The cast of Ray Stevenson, Gabriella Wright, Ed Skrein, Loan Chabanol, Tatiana Pajkovic, Wenxia Yu, Anatole Taubman, Yuri Kolokolnikov, Samir Guesmi, Lenn Kudrjawizki and Radivoje Bukvic all worked well together.
As for the direction, well it was pretty good too. I have never heard of Camille Delamarre before and although this seems to be his biggest movie to date, he handled the action and fight scenes very well.
As long as you’re not expecting a masterpiece, “The Transporter Refueled” is worth a watch.
