Frank Martin is the best in the business. The ex-Special Forces operative hires himself out as a mercenary "transporter" who moves goods - human or otherwise. Very simply, he delivers...no questions asked.
Frank has relocated from the French Mediterranean to Miami, Florida, where as a favor to a friend, Frank is driving for the wealthy Billings family. There's very little that can surprise the Transporter, but young Jack Billings has done just that; Frank has unexpectedly bonded with Jack, age 6, whom he drives to and from school. But when Jack is kidnapped, Frank must use his battle-tested combat skills to retrieve the boy and thwart the kidnappers' master plan to release a virus that will kill anyone with whom it comes in contact.
Headed by Gianni (Alessandro Gassman) and his girlfriend Lola (model Kate Nauta), the mercenary Columbian gang have plans to use Jack in ways no one could have imagined. Hazardous and high speed boat and motor chases ensue as Jack is whisked away from those that are trying to save him. But his captors hadn't counted on the determination and skill of Frank...
As the pace of the plot accelerates, Frank's job becomes much harder as it becomes apparent that Jack is not the only target... but will Frank be able to foil the mercenaries before it is too late?
When Twentieth Century Fox released THE TRANSPORTER in October 2002, the film became a worldwide theatrical hit. Produced and co-written by acclaimed filmmaker Luc Besson, THE TRANSPORTER became an even greater success on DVD. At the same time, the picture launched Jason Statham as Hollywood's newest action star, with Frank Martin becoming Statham's signature role.
