''The Transporter'' is 2002 action film starring Creator/JasonStatham as Frank Martin: a gruff, ex-military man who is in the "transporting" business. Give him the money, the measurements, and the time and hske'll get your stuff from A to B. Frank has a set of rules, one of which includes: "Never open the package". However, whilst transporting a large bag from a [[CardCarryingVillain somewhat unsavory client]], Frank discovers an Asian woman named Lai stuffed inside his cargo. He is visibly bothered by this and allows her the basic opportunities of food and bathroom time (during which she tries to escape) but ultimately ends up delivering her to the Bad Guys anyway. Because [[HeKnowsTooMuch he looked in the package]] the bad guys try to kill him and from there, {{hilarity ensues}}.
