Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action - Like the original film, this is a martial arts-heavy action thriller. The outlandish plot requires suspension of disbelief, but logic is not the draw here but action, and there's a lot of it.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Either 'Transporter 2' is wall to wall with absurd action, or it's not a sequel to "Transporter." And in fact the sequel is a better film than the original, ...

USA Today Full Review
Above Average ...But certainly this is a movie for fans of Willis-style action with a little James Bond and probable instant obsolescence thrown in.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 116 moviegoer opinions. The most important thing is that approximately three-quarters of all moviegoers enjoyed "Transporter 2" very much, rating it "Very Good" or higher. Unfortunately, there are quite a few who only rated it "Good" to "Fair," which is fairly low.

Since there are a large percentage of very high opinions ("Fantastic" and "Excellent") I would suggest that you see "Transporter 2." You stand a very good chance of thinking this is a great movie (as I did), or at the very least thinking that it's an OK/average movie, which isn't too bad.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Frank Martin is the best in the business. The ex-Special Forces operative hires himself out as a mercenary "transporter” who moves goods – human or otherwise. Very simply, he delivers…no questions asked. Frank has relocated from the French Mediterranean to Miami, Florida, where as a favor to a friend, Frank is driving for the wealthy Billings family. There's very little that can surprise The Transporter, but young Jack Billings has done just that; Frank has unexpectedly bonded with Jack, age 6, whom he drives to and from school. But when Jack is kidnapped, Frank must use his battle-tested combat skills to retrieve the boy and thwart the kidnappers' master plan to release a virus that will kill anyone with whom it comes in contact.
