I know this is a late review but I saw the movie again the other night and had to review it. This is the sequel to the original 2002 movie that takes place a few years later and is set in Miami. Ex-Special Forces operative Frank Martin (Jason Statham) has moved from his former locale in the French Mediterranean, but he still transports anything his clients ask for without asking too many questions. His latest job though involves transporting a specific person. After defending himself from a female carjacker (AnnaLynne) and her four male carjacker thugs (Reggie Pierre, Elie Thompson, Adam Faldetta, and Michael House) in the opening scene, he heads over to the house of wealthy drug czar Jefferson Ã¢â‚¬Å“JeffÃ¢â‚¬Â Billings (Matthew Modine.) The job, which was a favor to his friend Tony, consists of chauffeuring JeffÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s young son Jack (Hunter Clary) to and from school. Frank has only been doing it for a month, but he soon forms a bond with Jack. He tries to protect Jack from bad guys, but he also shields him from the constant bickering between Jeff and his estranged wife and JackÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mother, Audrey (Amber Valletta.) There are bad guys though, and one of them is international criminal Gianni (Alessandro Gassman.) His plan is to kidnap little Jack, inject him with a bio-engineered virus, and ransom his release and the antidote for $5 million. On the way to take Jack to his doctorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s appointment before his surprise birthday party, Dimitri (Jason Flemyng) and the lingerie-wearing Lola (Katie Nauta), two henchpeople of Gianni, arrive there first. They kill FrankÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s pediatrician Dr. Koblin (Andy Horne) and his receptionist (Damaris Justamante), and take over their positions in the office. Frank gets a weird feeling while being in the office, and soon that feeling turns out to be the right one. After a shootout and an escape from the office, Dimitri and Lola succeed in kidnapping Jack in front of the Billings estate. Jeff and U.S. Marshal Stappleton (Keith David) implicate Frank in the kidnapping, but Audrey insists that he is innocent. Frank calls upon French police inspector Tarconi (FranÃƒÂ§ois BerlÃƒÂ©and), a friend of his who is conveniently in Miami for a vacation, for some help in finding Gianni. Unfortunately, Tarconi ends up in police custody himself, though he spends most of the movie in the station house and not in a cell, where, for some reason, no one seems to care that he freely uses the stationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s computers. Frank must find Jack and clear his own name before Gianni succeeds in implementing his even bigger scheme.
