Reviews

For those who thought there couldn't possibly be a sequel to CRANK, this adrenaline-fuelled film marks a return for the character of Chev Chelios (Jason Statham). In CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE, Chelios tears through Los Angeles as he searches for the Chinese criminal who has possession of his heart. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor are back in the directors' chairs, and Amy Smart, Dwight Yoakam, and Efren Ramirez revisit their roles from the original film.

When you watch a Neveldine and Taylor film, you're signing up for bloodshed, vicious violence, and offensive content mixed with some excellently timed and seriously dodgy off-colour humour.
This is all of the above.
After Jason Statham's relentlessly determined survivor (and professional hit-man) cockney Chev Chelois seemingly died at the end of Crank, this starts in typically absurd fashion, with him being scooped off the tarmac with a shovel no less (see what I mean about the humour?) and bundled into a van. Next thing we know he's surrounded by mysterious bad guys hoping to harvest bits of his anatomy and the madness starts from there.
As fans of the first film will know, these stories are all about perpetual motion - if Chelios stops for too long he'll die. This time it's electricity that's needed, which leads to several gruesome moments, and a fair few very funny ones too. It also means we get non-stop careening from action scene to action scene, with a great deal of swearing and extreme violence. Amy Adams is back as his tolerant, loyal and faintly slutty girlfriend in a great role, and is joined by some of the original cast in roles that are used well, as well as a host of new faces.
Some of the gags are extremely juvenile, but they work because the film wears its colours extremely prominently on its sleeve. Inspired by the style of computer shoot-em-ups, it'll appeal to the same age group and mindset, with gradually increasing levels of bad guys and frequent 'health regeneration' moments.
Statham is hilarious and has a ball as the foul-mouthed sociopathic killer, as he staggers around from gunfight to gunfight followed by a trail of psychotic hookers, bizarre friends and carnage.

By Mr. Stuart Bruce TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

"Crank 2" picks up from the moment "Crank" finished and follows the same furious, crazy, violent, highly-charged pattern of nonsense as the first one. Imagine all the action scenes from a normal movie have been cut together, and all the scenes about plot or mystery have been left out. That's what "Crank 2" is like. Not a minute goes by without somebody being shot or stabbed. It's relentless, and that's really what it's all about.

As well as some more violent and ridiculous moments (as if the helicopter fight at the end of the first film wasn't enough), there are also some very tongue-in-cheek moments that give it a bit of an extra dimension. The surreal bit in which Chev and one of the baddies turn into Godzilla style giant monsters- brilliant. The bit in which one of the incidental characters from the first film re-appears on a psychiatrist's couch, good fun. It's slightly "Austin Powers"-like in the way it twists off and goes very silly in parts. Except of course the gun-fighting, brutal violence and regular nudity is not quite so "Austin Powers"-y.

A very very silly film, but if you want a violent action movie with a sense of humour, this is one of the best (but watch the first "Crank" first).

4.0 out of 5 stars Where's my strawberry tart?.... 19 Aug 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Chev Chelios is in an unknown location, sedated, while various Chinese are harvesting his organs. His heart is gone, in an ice chest; a temporary battery powered one in its place.

Chev escapes, calls Doc Miles, who tells him there's only an hour's life in the artificial heart, and to keep it charged.

Chev needs to find his own heart and get to the Doc for a transplant.

He starts his time-limited pursuit of shadowy figures, and his heart........

If a film was ever an acquired taste, then this must be the definition. This film makes the first movie look as serious as The 400 Blows. It's as if Neveldine and Taylor went on a huge bender and in their deepest darkest hour, they came up with this, experiment.

To sum the film up would be extremely difficult, but if you were to imagine, Manga, Looney Tunes, and a little eighties Jackie Chan, you can only just scrape the edge on the bizarreness of what you will see.

But the film works, because you cannot do anything but just go with it. Like a roller coaster, its painful to begin with, but then you get the rush, and just go with it.

Statham is brilliant, and the rest of the characters are pure bonkers.

You'll either think this film is great, or you'll hate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brown Bread, Right Said Fred, Simply Red........ 29 Jun 2009
Format:DVD
Do NOT under ANY circumstances listen to the reviewers who gave this film a poor rating, as these guys were clearly watching a different film to the rest of us Statham fans.

In a nutshell, this film is faster, more action packed, funnier, sexier, grosser, and downright more adrenaline pumping than the original Crank, which was undoubtedly one of the best action films in a very, very long time.

Statham is awesome, hard as nails and far crazier than ever before, which is what every fan wants to see from him, Amy Smart is sexy, funny, and wearing far less clothes than ever before, which is again what every Crank fan wanted to see.

Yes, it's insanely far fetched, yes the story is completely over the top, but thats hoiw it's SUPPOSED to be, and thats what makes these films so damn entertaining. Were the original Crank and Transporter films realistic??? Not in the slightest, and thats part of the appeal.

Without even mentioning the brilliant supporting cast this really is an outstanding action film which surpasses the original (which I didn't think was possible), and is something EVERY crank fan with half a brain will absolutely love.

Get it ordered and get it watched, you'll see exactly what I'm talking about!
