"... I think it's not dying you're afraid... it's living..."

from the fast-paced, action-packed adventure movie, 'Transporter 3', starring Jason Stratham, who reprised his role as the mercenary-for-hire, Frank Martin, whose job was to transport packages - human or otherwise - from point A to point B.

I really don't know how many times I had already watched the third instalment of the 'Transporter' series, hemmed by France's master taleblazer, Luc Besson, whose masterpieces included 'The Fifth Element', 'The Professional' & 'La Femme Nikita', just to name a few.

I had watched it again last night on StarHub cable television.

In 'Transporter 3', Frank had to deliver a package, in the person of Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukranian government official from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he had to contend with a ragtag group of bad guys, who were all out to intercept his safe delivery.

Somehow, against his own steadfast adherence to a set of rules, which had marked his reputation in the underworld transport business, he got romantically entangled with the package, which to some extent added adrenalin delivery of watching the movie.

By the way, the foregoing memorable quote came from Valentina as she successfully engineered the romantic escapade with Frank, while on the run - temporarily - from the bad guys.

Among others, the high-octane action sequences involving his Audi car on the moving train were among the best I had seen.
