What can I say – it was a slim week for cinema offerings! And so I went along to this with low expectations… and was still disappointed!
The reason this didn’t work for me is almost certainly the charisma-free performance from Ed Skrein, utterly failing to be Jason Statham. Somehow he just doesn’t convince as the hard as nails ‘Transporter’ – he’s too… I dunno, emotional? Hmm.
The action – the raison d’etre – is alright, but again it fails to convince at certain key moments.
The plot and characterisation and all that – well, you surely weren’t expecting much of all that from a movie like this, were you?! 😉
And yet still: I’d rather watch this again that a repeat of Fantastic Four: Transporter was expectedly naff, F4 was disappointing. There’s a difference.
