Jason Statham’s mock-Cockney attitudes have remained virtually unchanged across his range of roles. Whether in America or Britain, Italy or small South American islands, Statham has rarely ventured into exploring the culture of his surroundings. However, his role as Frank in the French Transporter films offer a tantalising glimpse into examining the interaction of a British star as ‘transnational body’. This chapter will examine Statham’s work within the codes of these international action movies.
