Poison in his veins. Vengeance in his heart.

Action anti-hero Jason Statham is competing with himself to make the most relentless, non-stop action flick imaginable. In Crank, Statham stars as a hit man named Chev Chelios who's been poisoned by some Chinese toxin; the only way to stave it off is to keep his adrenalin flowing, which requires him to drive at top speeds through crowded traffic, start fights in bars, and run pell-mell down hospital corridors while wearing one of those humiliating smocks that tie in the back. In other words, Crank is high-end pop-trash, filled with many preposterous/ingenious stunts and over-the-top performances (Dwight Yoakam, Sling Blade, is downright droll as a doctor offering Chev assistance), marred by an unpleasant attitude towards women (Amy Smart, Outside Providence, will not look back on this as one of her signature roles). This is a movie for the audience who enjoyed Transporter and Transporter 2 but wanted Statham's perpetual scowl to become a kind of theatrical mask, a perpetual signifier of intensity that begs - nay, demands - that everything around it rise to a mutual level of absurdity. Fans of Luc Besson (Leon/The Professional, District 13) will find Crank to be simpatico.

I rented this movie on the strength of "The Transporter". I like Jason Statham but unfortunately he has reached the bottom of the pile with this movie. It is the most dreadful film I have attempted to watch for a long time.

Jason Statham makes this movie a must see. Storyline is a little predictable but worth viewing all the same.

I don't know, didn't really enjoy this flick. The usual action flick involving drugs etc etc... Good action though. Just watched it cause I like Jason.

It was alright. After having seen Transporter 1 & 2 I felt let down with this actor in this movie. Had lots of action scenes but just had some really 'unrealistic' scenes. Wasn't believable enough for me.

I did not like this movie very much as the concept could have been given a little more thought and there was a few unnecessary moments (like the flea market scene) Although I do love the actor Jason... Read more
