It may not be Father’s Day, but if you need some dude time with your dear ol’ Dad, perhaps you can buy a pair of tickets to “The Transporter Refueled.” It’s got all the requisite ingredients — action, babes, explosions — and even a plot involving badass Frank Martin having to save his gruffly lovable father.
Starring Ed Skrein, Ray Stevenson, Loan Chabanol, Gabriella Wright, Tatiana Pajkovic, Wenxia Yu, Rasha Bukvic, Lenn Kudrjawizki, Anatole Taubman, and Noemie Lenoir, and directed by Camille Delamarre (“Brick Mansions“) the story finds Jason Statham‘s franchise character rebooted but given the same basic task: deliver dangerous packages for shady people. But this time around, things go wrong for Frank when he’s roped into a bank heist by some beautiful ladies. Here’s the synopsis:
Frank Martin (played by newcomer Ed Skrein), a former special-ops mercenary, is now living a less perilous life – or so he thinks – transporting classified packages for questionable people. When Frank’s father (Ray Stevenson) pays him a visit in the south of France, their father-son bonding weekend takes a turn for the worse when Frank is engaged by a cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabanol), and her three seductive sidekicks to orchestrate the bank heist of the century. Frank must use his covert expertise and knowledge of fast cars, fast driving and fast women to outrun a sinister Russian kingpin, and worse than that, he is thrust into a dangerous game of chess with a team of gorgeous women out for revenge.
