    Transporter 2!

    I saw it on Saturday, it is INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!! It had amazing action! Incredible fight scenes, and great stunts! I loved the movie, I can't wait to have it on DVD! It's definately one of the best action movies of all-time, and the best martial art movie in years.

    Right Now you're reading my post!

    "Transporter 2" Devirginizes Box Office


    It took Transporter 2 to transport the Labor Day weekend box office to a new high.


    The sequel starring Brit Jason Statham as the titular kick-ass bloke earned a record $20.2 million from Friday through Monday, according to preliminary studio estimates.


    The Labor Day opening record was previously held by another sequel, Jeepers Creepers 2, which debuted with $18.3 million in 2003.


    And, in a switch from much of his summer, the overall box office was actually up from last year.


    Fox's PG-13 Transporter 2 grossed $16.5 million from Friday to Sunday, easily surpassing the $9.1 million opening of 2002's The Transporter, which eventually grossed $25.2 million. Performing much better than the studio hoped, the second go-round averaged $6,131 at 3,303 sites, nearly double the original's $3,540 at 2,573 theaters.


    It also left the studio reaching to explain to appeal. "People love the character," Fox distribution executive Bert Livingston told the Associated Press. "It's escapism, and with all the tragedy going in New Orleans, I think people want to get away and lose themselves for an hour and half."


    With its slam-bang debut, Transporter 2 knocked down The 40-Year-Old Virgin to second place after two weeks on top. Steve Carell's sexual coming-of-age comedy is still performing strong, drooping only 20 percent in its third weekend, with $16.6 million over the four-day period and $13.1 million over the three. The R-rated Universal release has grossed a genuinely potent $71.9 million.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    The fight scenes were the best real action martial arts I've seen in a long time. The one with the big guy on the boat was great and the thing with the hose was rediculous. It's definitely a must see for action fans.

    I too saw the flick and I have to disagree. Though I thought the action was great some scenes were a bit over the top, too over the top for me. I liked the first one better myself it was just a bit more believable. However the fisrt 5 minutes is worth the price alone, also the car chase scene too. Anyway just my two cents.

    A couple of the scenes were over the top, but that's to be expected in today's movies.

    Overall it's refreshing to see a film come out that's not a remake of a television show.

    The Dukes of Hazzard wasn't a remake of a TV show. It was a bastardization of a TV show! Does that count?

    I got a kick out of it. I liked the first one too.

    Just a quality, pointless action flick.
