More like JUST SKIP.
This weekend is pretty slow as far as movie weekends go. The only movie being released in most theaters is The Transporter Refueled. This movie stars Ed Skrien, Loan Chabanol, and Ray Stevenson. While I have seen some of the movies Ray Stevenson is in I have never even heard of Ed Skrien. This movie seems to exist just to squeeze a little more money out of the Transporter I.P.
IMDB has the synopsis as “In the south of France, former special-ops mercenary Frank Martin enters into a game of chess with a femme-fatale and her three sidekicks who are looking for revenge against a sinister Russian kingpin.” While the trailer looked to have some great action, the story seems to be dry and really predictable. This movie has a current 21% on rotten tomatoes with their critic consensus saying the film feels more like “wishful thinking than a restatement of purpose.”
Bottom line: Seems like this should have been a straight to DVD film. If you’re going to make another Transporter film, bring back Jason Statham.
