British actor/rapper Ed Skrein (Game Of Thrones) takes the wheel from Jason Statham in this fourth film in the action series, directed by Camille Delamarre.  He's a leaner version, but can handle himself in the fight sequences, so he makes a pretty good substitute.
As Frank Martin, his job is to transport anyone that hires him - with no questions asked.  He picks up his client in front of a Monaco bank, and she's a striking woman named Anna (Loan Chabanol) who slips into the front seat of his sleek Audi and orders him to wait until her two female partners get into the back seat.  He understood that the job was to transport Anna only and he tries to back out of the deal.
Anna pulls a gun on him and tells him once her friends are in the back seat, he can drive.  They show up wearing the same dresses, heels and have on identical white blond wigs as Anna.  As soon as they close the doors on the car, the entire Monaco police force are after them.  They speed across the beautiful countryside and if you look quickly you might see some great scenery.
The women tell him to drive them to different addresses.  They get out of the car, steal from a man who wronged them and get back into the waiting car and do it several more times.  To ensure that Frank will do exactly as they tell him, a fourth woman is holding his father Frank, Sr. (Ray Stevenson) hostage in an old warehouse.
Skrein does a credible job as the great driver with little to say. He has some funny scenes with Stevenson, who was a good addition to the cast.
If you like scantily clad beautiful women, fast cars, fight scenes and stunning settings, The Transporter: Refueled is a good way to spend a couple of hours.
