The Transporter

  • The opening scene with Frank being the getaway driver for a quartet of bank robbers—only that Frank informs them the deal was for three passengers and refuses to even start the car until the ringleader shoots the extra and they dump his body. What follows is a high intensity chase that makes it apparent that the hapless robbers are getting much more than they bargained for, to the point that one of them even becomes carsick (Frank at least rolls the window down for him, but almost traps his face in the door when rolling it back up). The entire time, Frank is completely unphased and even turns down a bribe to drive them to the neighboring city, irritating the ringleader to no end with his sticking to his own rules.

  • Frank's response to seeing his Lai once more Bound and Gagged in his car is to abandon her (still tied to a roller chair) in the middle of the road. When he changes his mind, he dumps her in the trunk. Still gagged and tied to her roller chair.
  • Frank gets a little peeved after one of his employers try to off him with a bomb. He then goes back to the employer's house to have a word with him. How does he show up? Ringing the door bell and flying kick the damn thing off the hinges while sending the schmuck who went answer the door bell flying with it.

The Transporter 2

  • The end result of the second film's famous firehose scene: most of the mooks are tied up in the aforementioned hose in interesting twists, and Frank decides to fill the hose with water. Mass "Oh, Crap!".

How well does it match the trope?
