I must apologise to everyone who follows me on Twitter because I’ve already mentioned a crush I’ve developed for the actor Jason Statham since watching ‘Transporter 3’ last weekend. In reality, the film is Hollywood fictional nonsense at its very best, but who doesn’t like a bit of that from time to time. It also had the sort of class and sophistication of a Bond film; although I must say, and sorry in advance to any Daniel Craig fans, but for me, Frank Martin, as played by the lovely Mr Statham is far more enigmatic and charismatic……there, I’ve said it, and it’s out there
Anyway, enough now because there is a serious point to this, in fact 2 serious points. Firstly, I love the way that, despite seemingly insurmountable odds, he spends the film dealing with an endless supply of baddies by using effortless martial arts moves in order to do what he set out to do. (It’s a good job he keeps a stash of beautifully crisp, white Shirts & black ties in the boot of his Audi). But therein lies a message – when you set out to achieve something difficult, you need to take on all of the challenges that will inevitably be presented along the way; and never give up no matter how the odds are stacked against you.
The 2nd serious point is actually a question; what fabulous piece of kit is missing from the ‘Transporter 3’ film? ………..An Aston Martin DB9 of course!!! Mind you, I have to admit that the Audi isn’t too shabby :-)
