Crank 2: High Voltage

(Run time: 95 min. – Directed by: Neveldine/Taylor – Starring: Jason Statham, Amy Smart, Bai Ling, Dwight Yoakam)

Crank 2: High Voltage is like watching a movie on crank! Jason Statham returns as the bad ass only he could be Chev Chelios! Funny, fast-paced, and full of little visual jokes Crank 2 is cool!

After falling out of the sky and bouncing off a car to what we thought was his death, Chev Chellio’s gets a crazy heart transplant that adds a battery-pack to his belt and then is back on the streets looking for whose trying to kill him. Only now instead of adrenaline he’s got to stay, you guessed it, charged up! And I mean high voltage and he’s gonna have to find it in everything from tazers to car batteries.

Tons of crazy characters are splattered through this flick and not all for a clear, clean purpose, but who cares! I’m talking tattooed Mexican gangsters, a stalking Asian hooker, quirky strippers, returning Triads, Mohawked black bikers, an old friends full-body-turrets suffering twin brother, a David Carradine cameo, and the head of an old enemy! No, this isn’t a serious piece of art but it does kick butt!

I can’t say enough about the visuals in this movie. You can’t take your eyes off the screen without risking the chance of missing the next joke or sight gag. It’s too much! (In a good way.)

Returning to the craziness that is Crank is fun. I recommend this movie to the under 30 at heart crowd.

Check it out if you just want a good time watching a movie. Skip it if your gonna be over critical about every detail.
