I was watching 'The Transporter' tonight, and the main character bears a certain similarity to Master Roshambollah, minus the hat.
Yeah, Jason Statham. I hear that one from time to time, but I usually get Peter Sarsgaard:
(Note: After successfully creating the above composite image, I walked outside to grab a cup of coffee. The lady barista took my order and said, "You know who you remind me of?" "No," I reply. She says, "Peter Sarsgaard." I'm not even kidding...)
Except for the "style and wit" part, I'd have to agree. I would just substitute "style and wit" with something like "rambling monotony and exaggeration".
Mr. Crimson, I am gladdened beyond words that we once again find something on which to agree. I, too, found that The Transporter was pretty formulaic; the plot indeed "rambled" and I found the lack of character development to be somewhat disengaging. Don't get me wrong; I'm a fan of actioners (especially early John Woo and Tsui Hawk,) but if you're going to give me exaggerated, decontextualized gunplay, you should really take it over the top.
I note with some pleasure, Mr. Crimson, that you are now considered a "Bullboard Regular" based on your number of total posts. In the Spirit of Outreach, welcome.
(ps-Rockefeller, can I count the above composite as my homework assignment?)
(pps-I am overjoyed to point out that "Transporter" is an anagram for "an RPS retort")
