Scene of the Week: The Transporter
You would be hard-pressed to find a film made by Jason Statham that I didn’t at least enjoy a little bit. He has such a quiet cool and badass-ness to him that it’s utterly believable that he could kick a bunch of dudes’ asses and then go out and pick up some ladies at a pub. This scene, which is from The Transporter, was Statham’s first big exposure as an action star and to this day still my favorite of his films. That scene allows him to cover all the angles; fighting several guys at once, fighting a big, bald dude, and also fighting over a puddle of oil while wearing bicycle peddles on your feet. All things we’ve previously imagined in our heads, I’m sure. Check it out and enjoy.
