In the south of France, former special-ops mercenary Frank Martin enters into a game of chess with a femme-fatale and her three sidekicks who are looking for revenge against a sinister Russian kingpin.
Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukrainian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
A terminally ill French secret service agent is hired by Hydra, a mysterious black ops organization set up by the government, to fight crime by any means necessary and receive experimental treatment in return. Also, his daughter hates him.
A former intelligence and FBI officer, who now works as a security expert in Las Vegas, is recruited by mysterious pit boss Mr. Johnson to, based on his tips, try to prevent crimes, while the rich place bets on his chances of success.
Frank Martin returns as the Transporter with one very simple task - to deliver the package against all the odds. However, something that sounds so simple, is rarely so. Joined by two new team members, Caterina Boldieu, an ex- DGSE agent and later in the series, Jules Faroux, a computer and mechanical whizz, Frank is hired to deliver a diverse range of packages - from pop princesses to priceless paintings. Frank Martin takes the jobs no other transporter will touch or can achieve - simply because they are too challenging and the odds seemingly insurmountable.

And more often than not, solving that mystery will lead Frank to successfully completing his mission. However Frank's jobs aren't solely about the packages he must deliver but also about the people he meets. While his emphasis is always on completing the...Written by
It's a shallow TV series based on a good film series.
The acting is basic but acceptable considering how bad the script and the story lines are. It seems to have been written for 14 year old boys that like cars.
Part of the problem is that the action/fight scenes lack any realism. to try to increase realism there are jerky or speeded up shots of punches being thrown and cars being driven. the problem is that ends up being irritating as the cutting from shot to shot doesn't make it look fast at all.
Also the cars often don't react how they actually would at speed. I own an Audi A8 and they do not slide at the back at high speed unless you have very very low tyre pressure at the rear and high ones at the front and drive like a gorilla. presumably the character as a professional driver wouldn't.
so don't expect much from the series as you won't get too much.
