TRANSPORTER 2

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 87 minutes, deleted and extended scenes, blooper reel, Making of featurette, Making of the music featurette

STUDIO: Fox/ Europa Corp/ TF1 Films

RELEASE DATE: 1-10-2006

THE TRANSPORTER had over-the-top action scenes, but TRANSPORTER 2 takes to even more absurd extremes whether it is story of the action sequences. Basically it is bubble gum action films (from the French and Luc Besson) at their best. In the sequel, Frank has retired from the transporting business and has become a driver for a wealthy family's young son. On the day of the kid's birthday, Frank takes him to the Doctor only to find the Doctor and nurse murdered. A group of very bad people want to inject the kid with a lethal biologically engineered virus. Franks stops them and gets shot at by an Uzi wielding psycho bitch on the slutty side. However, the bad guys are on the top of their game and get the kid from Frank in the end. They inject the kid with the virus and return him to his parents while making it look like a kidnapping for money scheme. Frank learns the truth and races to get the antidote for the kid and anyone who has been exposed to the virus.

VIDEO: 2.35:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)/ 1.33:1 (Full Frame)

Since I only received a special screening copy, I only got to view the widescreen version. The colors and blacks aren't bad, but the transfer does look a little soft and has a little aliasing.

AUDIO: English 5.1 Dolby Surround, Spanish DS, French DS

Subtitles: English, Spanish, English Close Captioning

Dialogue is clear and the music is loud.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

The most impressive extra are the 9 extended scenes and 5 deleted scenes. Other extras (that I didn't get to review because they weren't on the disc) are the blooper reel, a MAKING OF TRANSPORTER 2 featurette, and a MAKING OF THE MUSIC featurette.

FINAL ANALYSIS: If you loved the first one, you will probably buy or rent it. If you're just looking for 90 minutes of action, just rent it.
