Former Special Forces officer, Frank Martin will deliver anything to anyone for the right price, and his no-questions-asked policy puts him in high demand. But when he realizes his latest cargo is alive, it sets in motion a dangerous chain of events. The bound and gagged Lai is being smuggled to France by a shady American businessman, and Frank works to save her as his own illegal activities are uncovered by a French detective.
First in the franchise and a really good starting point. Good story, nasty villains, tight direction, fantastic driving sequences, loads of action and some fun moments in-between. I can watch this over and over and still enjoy everything it brings to the table, great movie.
