The Transporter Refueled is an apt title for the reenergized 4th installment of this great action series and Director Camille Delamarre has hit a home run with his first big feature.
Fans, like me, do not have to worry about the absence of Jason Statham as Frank Martin. Ed Skrein is the Daniel Craig to Statham’s Sean Connery and François Berléand’s Inspector Tarconi is aptly replaced by Ray Stevenson as Martin’s ex-spy Father.
Writers Adam Cooper and Bill Collage have done a great job with Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen’s characters, who, here, are involved with helping women, who had been forced into sex slavery as adolescents get revenge on their abductor (Radivoje Bukvic).
Casting Director Nathalie Cheron has, also, done a fabulous job with populating the cast with such talented beauties as Loan Chabanal, Gabriella Wright, Tatiana Pajkovic, Wenxia Yu and Noémie Lemoir.
The car chases and fights are absolutely thrilling and the fact the action takes place on the French Riviera and Monaco just makes it doubly rewarding.
I give The Transporter Refueled a 4.1 out of 5.
