The Transporter

I finally got to see pieces and chunks of this movie and enjoyed it. Hee. It's very much an American movie trying to take on the Hong Kong style and losing badly in the comparison, especially with the liability clauses in everyone's contacts. There's a few fights that looked like they were trying for the Jackie Chan fights in limited spaces with unlimited props idea, but they went WAY too slow and only a single strike per shot was just a little sad. But I loved the grease sequence where he pops off the strap-on bike pedals with their spikes and slams into 'em and I'm like Oooooooo... yes. That kind of cleverness.

Shallow, quick, fast, and flashy and very American it's still fun.
