Cinemax has been trying to get into the original series game, with last season’s action show Strike Back and now the upcoming show based on The Transporter. Jason Statham is, unfortunately, not returning so actor Chris Vance takes over the role of Frank Martin, who will drive anything, anywhere for the right price. The show looks kind of boring, something you would think you would never be able to say about anything Transporter related, and Cinemax seems to think the inclusion of boobs was the only thing that was missing from the original movies. Frank also seems to have some sort of Moneypennyesque secretary/agent and the basic premise seems to be that Frank is hired by a hot lady every week and then has to fight the random Russian mobsters, criminals and other bad guys that are targeting them. Check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
