Truth be told, apart from the obvious major casting change, not much differentiates this Transporter film from the three that precede it. Even then, it has to be argued that Statham, who, in his defence, has earned himself a considerable fan base along the years, is not the most dynamic of actors. He essentially plays the same character over and over again, and while it is often amusing and serves as a comforting signature to his fans, replacing him for the role of Frank Martin could not have been the most difficult thing in the world to accomplish.
The transporter is cool — the character Frank Martin (Ed Skrein) that is, although the film also has its moments. Frank’s dad, Frank Senior (Ray Stevenson) is so cool.
