Refueled, but running on empty: A Review of The Transporter Refueled

2024-05-12

“The Transporter Refueled” (2015) attempts to reboot the action franchise with a new cast and director. While it delivers the expected high-octane car chases and fight scenes, it sputters in capturing the charm and grit of the Jason Statham-led originals.

The story places Frank Martin, this time played by Ed Skrein, in the sights of a femme fatale and her accomplices. They enlist his skills for a revenge mission against a Russian kingpin, but Frank soon finds himself in the middle of a dangerous web.

Skrein lacks the charisma and effortless cool that Statham brought to the role. The supporting cast has its moments, especially Ray Stevenson as Frank’s father, who adds some humor to the otherwise generic plot.

The action sequences are a mixed bag. The car chases are plentiful, but rely heavily on CGI, sacrificing the raw thrill of the practical effects used in the earlier films. The fight choreography is decent but forgettable.

“The Transporter Refueled” feels like a pale imitation of its predecessors. It lacks the sharp wit, memorable characters, and visceral action that made the originals fun. If you’re looking for a mindless action flick, it might provide a temporary distraction. But for fans of the franchise, this reboot is a disappointment.
