The Transporter

Corrected entry: After Frank returns to the bad guy's house after his BMW blows up, he steals a Mercedes from the garage. He drives through the garage doors, and then through the compound gate without opening either one. As he goes through the compound gate, you see that the grill on the Mercedes is fine, but in the next shot on the road, the grill is hanging down on one side. What caused this? (00:30:55)

Correction: The grill hanging down on one side is caused by the last door he hits when he speeds out. There are two doors that Frank runs into; the big door is the one that makes the grill off to the side.

Corrected entry: When Frank gets a flat tire on his car, he goes to the boot and takes out a non matching (to what he already has) standard BMW alloy wheel. It cuts to him actually taking the one he's just taken from the boot off the car. Next scene, after he leaves the shop with the drink for Li, his car has the non standard alloy wheel back on. (00:17:40)

Correction: It appears Frank is at a Gas station/car wash/convenience store. He could have easily asked them to plug the tire, use a can of Fix-A-Flat, or possibly (but unlikely) put a new tire onto the rim.

Corrected entry: Shortly after the bad guys blow up Frank Martin's house, Martin and the girl go to the Wall Street's office to confront him. Frank disarms Wall Street, taking a 1911 .45. Frank makes Wall Street sit at his desk and covers him with the gun. To emphasize a point, Martin cocks the hammer with his thumb. After some discussion, Martin hands the pistol to the girl to cover Wall Street while he searches the office. After a bit the girl gets angry and again cocks the hammer. Anyway, if Frank Martin, obviously a weapons expert, had taken a .45 auto off someone with the intention of possibly using it, he surely would have cycled back the slide to make sure there was a round in the chamber. (00:56:45)

Correction: At this point in the movie, Frank has almost been killed twice, and his favourite car and house have been destroyed. When he visits Wall Street, the last thing on his mind would be to see if there is a bullet in the chamber. More importantly, this also explains why Wall Street was so relaxed, even though he had a gun pointed at him.

Corrected entry: When Frank and Lai are holding Wall Street at gunpoint in his office, Wall Street calls Frank by his first name, even though Frank never told him. (rule 2: no names) (00:57:50)

Correction: Seeing as Wall Street was able to send thugs to Frank's house and blow it to Kingdom Come, I think it's safe to say that he did a little research and now knows his name.

Corrected entry: When the containers are being taken somewhere, and the chase and fight scenes begin, there are two containers being taken to wherever they're going. However Frank only rescues one of these containers and drives it away, what about the other container? (01:16:25 - 01:23:15)

Correction: If you paid attention to the movie, Frank took out all the other vehicles in the convoy in one form or another. This pretty much left the lone Transport truck, which the police would have no problem pulling over later on down the road.

Corrected entry: After Frank stole the truck, he just drove it off to a secluded location, then the bad guy, who was driving behind him, pulls a gun on him. If Frank was such a professional driver, wouldn't he have checked his rearview mirror sometime to see that he was being followed the whole time? (01:23:15)

Correction: His rearview mirror was shattered from Wall Street's shotgun fire, so he couldn't watch his back.

Corrected entry: When Frank and the Wall Street guy are fighting in the lorry at the end, Frank is steering the lorry with both of his feet. If he has both of his feet on the steering wheel, then how is he pressing the accelerator? (01:20:50)

Correction: It is possible that the truck had cruise control that allows it to continue at the set speed without anyone pressing the accelerator.

Corrected entry: After the lead bank robber shoots his fourth partner, blood is splattered on the rear window, but it isn't shattered. How could the blood come out, but the bullet stay in? (00:04:40)

Correction: It is more than possible for the bullet to have collided with the back of the skull with enough force to spray blood outward, but be deflected either (a) back inside, or (b) outward on a different trajectory that doesn't hit the window.

Rooster of Doom

Corrected entry: How does the pilot of the plane know to greet Frank in English and not French?

Correction: Frank greets him in English first, so he responds in kind.

Phoenix

Corrected entry: The choice of BMW was rather poor. On narrow European roads an M5 would have been preferable over a 735i, as it is not only smaller and lighter (much more suitable for frequently narrow French roads), but also much faster and ideal for the work Frank was doing.

MGD

Correction: This is an opinion, not a mistake.

Corrected entry: In the oil fight scene after Frank takes the pedals off the bike, he throws the bike at the guys he is fighting in the oil. When Frank fights them, what happens to the bike? It disappears.

Correction: No, it doesn't. When Frank steps into the oil on the pedals, it can be seen lying on the far side, beyond a thug. In the following shot with Frank in the middle of the circle, the bike is in the foreground.

Phoenix

Corrected entry: Frank seems to have very clean hands after changing the tire of his BMW. When I've changed a tire before my hands are covered in tire grease and dirt yet his hands show no filth at all.

Tobin OReilly

Correction: From someone who changes tires regularly, it can be done, and it is much easier on a car as spotless as this one.

Sol Parker

Corrected entry: After the bad guys blow up Frank's house and Frank and the girl jump into the water, flippers appear on their feet even though they didn't put any on.

Correction: It's implied that they put on scuba gear that he has stashed down there.

Jez

Corrected entry: The crop dusting airplanes fly at such low altitudes that there is no point in having a parachute as standard equipment because there is no chance of using it in case of emergency. So where has the parachute come from?

Correction: Just because the aircraft's primary function is crop-dusting, doesn't mean that it's exclusively used for that purpose. Perhaps the owner flies recreationally as well, or is merely very cautious.

Jez

Corrected entry: In the scene where Frank is watching the news, you can see the AV1 input display on the TV; meaning he is watching a video, NOT the news.

Correction: Just because it says AV1 doesn't mean he is watching a video. It could very well be that the video feed is coming from a VCR, but it could be because his cable box or satellite box is hooked up to the VCR. Also, the cable or satellite could be hooked to the AV1 inputs, so it would be normal that AV1 appears on the TV.

Corrected entry: After the part where the Transporter discovers the moving body in his car. He is seen at a rest stop eating something. He then gets an Orange Soda (or something) out of a fridge and leaves the store without paying for it.

Correction: Just before Frank takes the drink from the fridge, he puts money on the counter and picks up a straw.

Corrected entry: When the Transporter is cleaning up his car from the opening chase he removes a white plate from the front of the car but when he goes to his supply of plates they are all yellows that are found on the back of the car.

Correction: Surely he would have both plates for each set he uses, as he is very particular about the way he stores his tools/equipment etc he may store all the white plates behind the yellow and given the pates have raised lettering they could line up and hide the back (the white) plate from view.

Corrected entry: During the final chase scene the Transporter is seen breaking into the rear Mac truck in a series of two. At the end of the movie when he finally meets up with the Police, he's in a lone truck. The other Mac truck seemed to have disappeared.

Correction: When Frank takes control of the Mac truck, he is seen driving it off the freeway. At this point the first Mac truck is still in front and it presumably continues on this route.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Frank and Lai are getting out of the water she calls him Frank. He never told her his name, so how did she know what it was?

Correction: Remember that when Lai gets up to explore Frank's house she stumbles upon his old military files, in it included his dogtags which she read as well as photos and the medal.
