Kyle Anderson at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 67 score. He said: “It’s hard to deny the hedonistic joy in the way Delamarre plays with his various toys, and the goofball stunts—including the yacht-based finale, with a special appearance by a jet ski—are generally worth wandering through the dialogue desert.”

Andrew Barker from Variety, gave it a 60 score. He stated: “The Transporter Refueled comes up strong where it counts, with frequent bursts of ludicrously implausible yet coherently directed mayhem.”

Ben Kenigsberg over at The New York Times, gave it a 40 grade, saying: “The Transporter Refueled is crass and nonsensical, but it is hard to hate a movie in which a medical anesthetic is administered with a nightclub fog machine, the weapons include a ringed life preserver, an escape from a moving plane continues by car onto a jetway and the touch-screen banking software appears expressly designed for double-crossing.”

James Rocchi from TheWrap, gave it a 40 grade, saying: “The action’s accent on Russian rogues, lethal ladies and Rivera-set car chases makes The Transporter Refueled feel less like a film and more like the world’s most violent Vanity Fair fashion spread, all poses and pouts instead of the two-fisted, rough life of the originals.”

Frank Scheck at the The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 40 score. He stated: “Director Camille Delamarre (Brick Mansions) and his collaborators have devised a few nifty sequences.”

Peter Sobczynski at, gave it a 38 score. He said: “To be honest, this storyline is not noticeably stupider in theory than any of the other “Transporter” films.”

Brian Truitt from USA Today, gave it a 38 grade. He said: “A mostly dreadful reboot by director Camille Delamarre (Brick Mansions) that casts English youngster Ed Skrein in Statham’s role as well-dressed driver-for-hire Frank Martin.”

Michael O’Sullivan from the Washington Post, gave it a 25 score. He said: “The first “Transporter” delivered an unexpected kick, courtesy of Statham, who made for a brooding, magnetic — and reliably kinetic — action hero. Skrein is an inferior stand-in, scowling like his predecessor, but lacking Statham’s cool, coiled power.”

Kyle Smith from the New York Post, gave it a 25 grade, saying: “The Transporter Refueled is a story of bodies: sleek, curvy, luscious bodies, purring for action and ready to let you do anything to them. They’re hotties, these Audis.”

Michael Ordona from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it another bad 25 score, stating: “The movie’s ridiculous.”

Lastly, Joe Neumaier at the New York Daily News, gave it the worst “0” score, claiming: “The Transporter Refueled should be put up on blocks.” Stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Google Plus by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
