The Transporter Refueled is a reboot of the series and Ed Skerin takes the reigns as the main character of Frank Martin from Jason Statham in the original trilogy of movies and Chris Vance from the TV series. "Refueled" is about former special-forces operative Frank martin who transports various items for a living but he gets caught up in a scheme planned by a woman and her sidekicks to target a Russian kingpin as Frank's father visits him.
The Positives: Despite this being a piece of trash, there were a few positives. Like the other installments in the franchise, they have some great stunts and action here, the action is well choreographed and the stunts are Furious 7 unrealistic style but still pretty fun. Also Ray Stevenson who I think is a pretty good actor plays Franks dad and he's probably the best part of this movie. And that's IT for the positives....
The Negatives: I can go on and on.... First off, Ed Skerin who plays Frank Martin just isn't cut out for this and he just sucks and is clearly a wannabe Jason Statham here and he doesn't live up to Statham or even Vance who I thought was a surprisingly worthy Transporter in the TV show. Next, Frank Martin Sr and Jr, yup they pulled a Indy 3 and Franks dad is always calling him Jr and they show their names later and its Frank Martin Jr and Sr, that's a minor thing but they really didn't need to do that, it doesn't work for a Transporter movie. Also speaking of the dad, as much as I liked Ray Stevenson in this, his character isn't just kidnapped once, but MULTIPLE times by different people and even though he's described as a former spy, he is made to seem like he's such a damsel in distress here. Also the women who are trying to take down the kingpin have sad backstories, they are made to be so annoying. The main plot is pretty rushed and some of the moments in here are just plain CRINGEWORTHY. I heard that this was going to be the start of a new trilogy but hopefully they cancel those plans after this.
Overall, this is a pretty sad attempt of a reboot that flips off fans of the series and gets up there for being one of the worst movies of the year- 4/10 and I feel like that I'm being nice.
