Special Forces veteran Frank Martin (Jason Statham) is at it again. But this time, in Miami instead of the French Riviera and this time as a highly paid chauffeur instead of a high speed, high caliber deliverer of packages. This time Frank's "package" is the strangely delicate six year old Jack Billings (Hunter Clary). Jack's dad and Frank's temporary boss, Jefferson Billings (Matthew Modine) is the very powerful (and very rich) "boss" for a new and powerful international war on drugs.

Drug lord Gianni (Alessandro Gassman) works for they who don't like the new drug war developments, no, not one bit. So Gianni and company develop a new strain of virus that will kill the host and anyone who breathes the air the host exhales. Gianni delivers his lethal bugs by injecting young Jack with the virus. Jack gets infected. Jack gets surprisingly easily rescued, Jack gets hugs and kisses from mom and dad. Mom and dad become infected. Dad speaks to a convention of international narcotics agents. Etc., etc.

Jack's mom, Audrey Billings (Amber Valletta) is conveniently fed up with Jeffrey now that Frank is available for her attention ... whether he wants it or not. Audrey even seeks out Frank and comes on to him but Frank says no ... I think. One scene is of her clawing Frank with him dutifully resisting until he weakens. Then suddenly the next scene is of them walking out to her car. [Prov. 6:32]

Some of the most dazzling choreography of physical agility I have ever seen fills most of the screen time. Too bad it was all Hollywood-style fighting. The usual "martial arts" fighting where the bad guys get hit or kicked or slammed or drug or whatever in such a way that the normal guy would be out like a light after one or two connections. But no, all the bad guys withstand a volley of hits, go down for a moment or two then come back for more.

I have never been able to figure out why Hollywood typically has eight or ten bad guys surrounding the super-human good guy while the good guy battles one or two of them and the six or eight not being whupped at the moment just stand there, waiting their turn. It simply doesn't happen that way in real life. So much for the thinking that says movies are a reflection of real life. Oh, well. That's Hollywood.

Gianni's hit woman, Lola (Katie Nauta) is one of the "bad guys" who takes almost everything Frank can deliver. And she gives almost everything she can give. Some of the most vulgar performances I have ever seen are provided by Nauta. And yes there is nudity in this PG-13. Of her and Gianni. Together. And of her alone. And almost-nudity of her alone almost throughout the film. Regarding the "partial nudity" in the MPAA's rating description "intense sequences of violent action, sexual content, partial nudity and brief language", there is nothing partial about it.

Though I am not a filmmaker, producer or even film critic or anything like them, I see no thespian talent in Nauta's performances, just eye-candy for they who like that sort of thing. The make-up artists did do some rather interesting things with her eyes, though. I wonder if "Nauta" has assumed that name like some female performers whom I believe are called erotic dancers seem to have done. It strongly suggests "naughty" which accurately describes her performances in Transporter 2. If not, the similarity is a rare coincidence.

Indeed there seems to be indication that the entire cast skipped acting classes and doubled up in Phys-Ed. But one performance was at least was pleasant. The vacationing French cook and police detective Tarconi (Francois Berleand) who became pals with Frank in The Transporter (2002) is probably the best talent in the film. Through his few unforced performances the audience is treated to a little comic relief and connectivity with cinematic sanity.

I am not going to spend much time on this, yet one more hardcore R-13. Transporter 2 is almost twice as "R-13" as The Transporter of 2002. Following is a comparative of the scoring of both films.

Even the Influence Density figure of 2.20 is greater (more severe) than the range of influence Density figures for all the R-rated films in the comparative baseline database 0.0 to 2.04 (the higher the figure, the more dense the invasive programming). And Transporter 2 is a modern PG-13! More proof of the decay of the standards of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). And Harvard University agrees with us ... but four years later.

There is enough immoral programming and assaults on morality and ethics found in the film to earn a score of zero out of 100 in both of the Wanton Violence/Crime and Sexual Immorality investigation areas. The violence and crime presence sort of goes without saying [Rom. 12:18, Ps. 62:10, Ps. 141:4] but due to Nauta and her performances, there was no chance for the film to have any points left in Sexual Immorality. Not only does she prance while wearing nearly nothing, she appears nude with Gassman who is also nude. That "you don't see anything" except them naked from the side does not make them clothed. [Eccl. 8:11, Gal. 5:19]

And there is the usual foul language, including one use of the most foul of the foul words which, in the past, has prompted the MPAA to give any film using it a R rating. But not 'nymore. [Col. 3:8] Strangely enough, there is only one use of God's name in vain -- er -- using the name of Jesus in vain, but that doesn't excuse it. Not one little bit. [Deut. 5:11]

I am going to let the listing in the Findings/Scoring section, the actual CAP analysis model, speak further for this film.

PS: I apologize to the movie poster artist/photographer but I cannot allow such a display on our website. If these folks would rather I not use the touched-up poster artwork which does not significantly reduce the communication of the whole poster, I will be happy to take it down.

Finally, I again apologize for the lateness of this report. The only way I can assure you of any analysis report before the first showing or even within a few days after the first showing is if my wife can quit and be the one to stay at home with the seven kids, one of whom is a teenage girl and another is a two-year old cerebral palsy baby who must be fed every 1.5 hours during the daytime and given a breathing treatment ever four hours.

  • Prov. 6:32 But a man [orwoman] who commits adultery lacks judgment; whoever does so destroys himself.
  • Rom. 12:18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
  • Ps. 62:10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them. [Oppression/threats to enable theft or plunder is extortion.]
  • Ps. 141:4 Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil, to take part in wicked deeds with men who are evildoers; let me not eat of their delicacies.
  • Eccl. 8:11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. [When men can continue to demonstrate sins ("evil work") such as violence, filthy communications and sexually immoral acts without consequences, they will continue to do so with impunity and desire to do more.]
  • Gal. 5:19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;
  • Col. 3:8 But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
  • Deut. 5:11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. [Vain is shav' {shawv}: emptiness, nothingness, vanity, such as an expletive. With or without the four letter expletive, the use of God's name in any way other than respect, reverence or thoughtful discussion is in vain. That includes the popular three syllable sentence with His name trailing it AND the misuse of Jesus' name.]

    ***Selected Scriptures of Armour against the influence of the entertainment industry***
  • Ps. 12:8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men [e.g., create progressively vile/offensive entertainment with impunity and no consequences to younger and younger audiences every year when enough people continue to defend it, embrace it, pay for it, enjoy it, want it].
  • Col. 2:8 Beware lest any man [by his influence] spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
  • 1 Cor. 15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
  • Rom. 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
  • Jude 1:4 For there are certain men* crept in unawares [secretly slipped in among you], who were before of old ordained to this condemnation [whose condemnation was written about long ago], ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness [a license for immorality], and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. [*men: anthropos {anth'-ro-pos}, generic, a human being, whether male or female]
  • Matt. 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto [or for] one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto [or for] me.
  • Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. ["Offend": skandalizo - to entice to sin; to cause a person to begin to distrust and desert one whom he ought to trust and obey; to cause to fall away. "Little ones": mikros - little;, small of age; younger which can include at-home teens].
  • Ps. 119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me [let no sin rule over me].
  • John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
  • 1 Thess. 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. ["Evil" includes all things that are sinful.]

    There are some in the entertainment industry who maintain that 1) violent programming is harmless because no studies exist that prove a connection between violent entertainment and aggressive behavior in children, and 2) young people know that television, movies, and video games are simply fantasy. Unfortunately, they are wrong on both accounts." And "Viewing violence may lead to real life violence." I applaud these associations for fortifying 1 Cor. 15:33. Read the rest of the story. From our more than eight years of study, I contend that other aberrant behaviors, attitudes, and expressions can be inserted in place of "violence" in that statement. Our Director - Child Psychology Support, a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist concurs. For example, "Viewing arrogance against fair authority may lead to your kids defying you in real life." Or "Viewing sex may lead to sex in real life." Likewise and especially with impudence, hate and foul language. I further contend that any positive behavior can be inserted in place of "violence" with the same chance or likelihood of being a behavior template for the observer; of being incorporated into the behavior mechanics and/or coping skills of the observer. In choosing your entertainment, please consider carefully the "rest of the story" and our findings.
