Frank Martin (Jason Statham) is a former Special Forces officer who lives on the French Mediterranean and has a lucrative second career as a underworld courier for hire. Martin will deliver anything anywhere, but he has three iron-clad rules - once the plan is in motion it cannot be changed, neither he nor his customers are to ever use their real names, and under no circumstances will he open the package.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Jason Statham uses his smoldering charisma to great effect."
‑ Hank Sartin, Chicago Reader
"The chases and explosions get a little (well, more than a little) ludicrous, but the cool premise is still very cool."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Pure popcorn pleasure for older teens and up."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Chases and choreographed fights set to rock music take up most of the running time and the movie is like To Catch a Thief remade by a hack follower of John Woo."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"A ridiculous and confusing mess of overwritten dialogue, nonsensical plot contrivances and impossible, overlong action sequences."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"The acting might be shoddy, the plot nonsense and the dialogue clunky, but the fighting is exquisitely done. Inventive, athletic, fun, stylish and tight, it's everything the rest of the film isn't."
‑ , Time Out
"Immensely exciting and funny -- and it even has a Proust joke."
‑ John Patterson, L.A. Weekly
"I had high hopes from this film..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"This gang mastermind, gym body Italian import psycho neck wringer Gianni (Alessandro Gassman, son of famed Vittorio), has concocted likely the most convoluted mass murder scheme ever to hit the theaters."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"Mais uma vez, Luc Besson (que aqui exerce as funções de produtor e roteirista) ignora a narrativa em prol da ação inconseqüente (e inócua, já que ninguém sequer sangra). O que aconteceu ao responsável pelo ótimo O Profissional?"
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Kills time between car chases and martial-arts bouts with random scuba-diving footage apparently culled from producer-co-writer Luc Besson's The Big Blue."
‑ Justine Elias, Village Voice
"It's high rent Steven Segal -- fights, explosions, and more fights, but with a flair."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Every bit the over-the-top action extravaganza it appears to be, and the glee of its knowing preposterousness makes it easy to overlook its general mindlessness."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"An entertaining surprise."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A serviceable Euro-trash action extravaganza, with a decent sense of humor and plenty of things that go boom - handguns, BMWs and seaside chateaus."
‑ Nick Rogers, State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
