Action Adventure Crime - Like the previous two films, this is an action film with lots of
martial arts fights and car stunts. The young male action crowd is
the target audience. Violent content make the film inappropriate for
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average Without a doubt, Transporter 3 offers more innovative ways in which to defy the laws of physics than Transporter or Transporter 2, but it lacks more than a semblance of a coherent plot.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average 'Transporter 3' is a perfectly acceptable brainless action thriller, inspiring us to give a lot of thought to complex sequences we would have been better off sucking on as eye candy.
USA TodayFull Review Average A story about a man delivering packages, no matter how skilled he is at driving a German roadster on two wheels or skidding onto the roof of a speeding train, is still a story about a deliveryman.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 51 moviegoers:
TEENS:GREAT REVIEWS from the guys! The two females also enjoyed it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The males reviews are mixed. Half enjoyed it very much and half rated it just good/average. The one females loved it.
ADULTS:Two-thirds of the males loved "Transporter 3." The remaining third rated it average to below average. The female reviews are good but not great. A few loved it, a few rated it above average and a few rated it average. If you're a Transporter fan, like me, I recommend that you see this movie and it's best seen on the big screen due to the great action scenes.
Frank Martin has been pressured into transporting Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of Leonid Vasilev, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency for the Ukraine, from Marseilles through Stuttgart and Budapest until he ends up in Odessa on the Black Sea. Along the way, with the help of Inspector Tarconi, Frank has to contend with the people who strong armed him to take the job, agents sent by Vasilev to intercept him, and the general non-cooperation of his passenger. Despite Valentina's cynical disposition and his resistance to get involved, Frank and Valentina fall for each other, while escaping from one life-threatening situation after another.
