Review

Our Score
Action man Jason Statham shows a softer side here, in the disjointed and poorly scripted third entry in his signature high-flying franchise. As moody driver Frank Martin he's forced to drive kidnapped "package" Valentina (Natalya Rudakova) around Europe until her father, the Ukrainian environmental minister, signs a crooked toxic waste agreement. The eco-villains will kill her if he refuses. Frank is made to wear a bracelet that's rigged to explode should he wander too far from his car, meaning he and Valentina have to get closer than expected and inevitably fall in love. The irrelevant plot merely serves to showcase the typically outrageous, gravity-defying stunts - cars skidding atop speeding trains - and provide excuses for the ultra-fit Statham to get his kit off - the hilarious strip-fight. But while the flash, bang, wallop stuff once used to be fun, this is just boring and more brainless than ever.

Summary

Underworld courier Frank Martin's latest assignment involves transporting the kidnapped daughter of a crooked government minister across Europe on behalf of an eco-terrorist faction. However, a device will kill him if he leaves his car, thugs employed by the politician are out to murder him, and his passenger has a bad case of Stockholm syndrome. Action thriller sequel, with Jason Statham and Natalya Rudakova.
