THE TRANSPORTER REFUELLED
Directed by Camille Delamarre.
Starring Ed Skrein, Ray Stevenson, Loan Chabanol.
Essentially a movie about a guy with a car who can drive well.
Ed Skrein whispers his way through an approximation of the Stath in this redundant prequel to Luc Besson’s action franchise. The Transporter Refuelled is essentially a movie about a guy with a car who can drive well. This might have stood a better chance if the producers had ditched the Transporter label altogether and just started from scratch. As it stands, the action is too slick and the fight scenes too choreographed to stimulate any sense of danger or excitement. There’s some gubbins about a prostitution ring run by the Russian mafia, but that’s all pretext to the MTV-style faux lesbian titillation and car porn. If that sounds like your thing, then fill your boots. Otherwise, The Transporter Refuelled is best avoided.
