I’m sorry to Jason Statham fans. But this has got to be and possibly the worst movie of 2008. I’ve never been a fan of The Transporter, the very movie that catapulted Jason to stardom. Not even the yummilicious Leelee Sobieski could save this unneccessary, appalling movie. Not the bad story. Nor the bad acting, casting, costumes, cinematography and script. I watched it all of five minutes before I deduced it as a complete waste of time. However, I gave it chance (maybe I shouldn’t have) for another 25 minutes to see if there was a chance it would improve. But heck no. It didn’t. And not since a very, very long time that I’ve walked out of a movie. This movie, unfortunately, (and fortunately for my sanity and sake of preserving my intelligence) deserves to be bludgeoned and condemned for what it is and what it represents (shit movies which waste your time and money). A complete waste of my RM11. And 30 minutes of my life.
I cannot believe a movie this bad could exist in 2008. I mean, c’mon! What’s this? The 90s? Shit. Completely speechless, I am.
Just to humour you, here’s the sypnosis:
A simple family man (Jason Statham) becomes a reluctant warrior after an army of murderous beasts commanded by an evil sorcerer (Ray Liotta) ransacks his peaceful village and captures his wife (Claire Forlani). Director Uwe Boll conjures up a treacherous and magical medieval world filled with thrilling adventure, spectacular battles and warring wizards. Set against some of the most rugged and breathtaking terrain ever captured on film.
