Elevator Pitch A girl in Bogota sees her parents killed in a gang war, and after managing to get to America, with the assistance of her gangland uncle, trains to become an assassin. With the FBI on her tail she locates the killer of her parents and plans her revenge.
Content A lot of shooting with handguns, machine guns and a sniper rifle. Numerous explosions. Some fighting, hand to hand, once with toothbrushes. There is a bit of non revelatory sex.
A View A simple tale of revenge. We are as astounded as the FBI that a very slight young woman can wreak such havoc. Some of the plot pretty loony, to the point that I was reminded of Resident Evil. But if you like action films with stainless steel heroes or heriones there are worse ways of passing an hour and forty minutes, but not nearly as much fun as Transporter.
