movie-march-2009-transporter-3Synopsis

In part 3 of this series, Frank Martin (Statham) is contracted to deliver a package in the trunk of his car to Odessa, on the Black Sea. He is told that a young woman named Valentina must go with him.

There are some very nasty people who try to disrupt his trip, but that is why Frank was chosen for the job. He is, after all, The Transporter.

He discovers that the package in the trunk is not the real item that is to be transported. It is Valentina, daughter of a French official who is responsible for monitoring any dangerous substances that might be carried into the port of Marseille, and she has been kidnapped so that a terrorist organization can force him to sign a contract that will allow toxic waste material to enter the port on several ships.
