Frank Martin is a Crap Transporter

You all know who Frank is right? The Transporter (played by Jason Statham).  So, we’re getting a TV Series apparently (someday) which I’ll check out, despite being Stathless. In his place will be Chris Vance from TV’s Burn Notice.

Anyway, it got me thinking.  Frank is a really crap Transporter; on EVERY job he is always breaking his own rules, getting emotionally involved and being betrayed by his employers.  If I were you Mr. Martin, I’d maybe see if McDonald’s are hiring because you SUCK at transporting.

Sure you always end up saving the day, but surely no one in their right mind would want to hire you. You check in the packages, you find out people’s names and usually end up changing the deal. Now, I’m sorry but I’m afraid you just aren’t a reliable transporter and there’s no point in making rules if plan on constantly breaking them.

If you’re about to have your own TV series, does that mean every week you will be getting betrayed by your employers, breaking your own rules and beating up random henchmen?

Would any of you hire Frank? I wouldn’t. Would I say so to his face? Heck no.

Crank vs. The Transporter

Everyone loves The Stath and these are his 2 biggest franchises so far, but which one is the best? During the earlier 2000’s the action genre was pretty dried up, Stallone had disappeared into DTV Hell (temporarily) and Arnie...
