The only thing more mind boggling than watching this film is the thought that there will be a Crank 3. It makes the original film look like a well thought out family drama. I give it five stars for... Read more sheer unclassifiable madness - it should be seen, but most likely only once. I did laugh a lot, the insults hurled at everything held dear by a modern, liberal, feminist, sentimental world were great! The overall effect had me so entranced, that moments that had my wife cringing with her hands over her eyes had me engrossed like I would never tolerate in other genre. Perhaps that's the thing: Crank 2, while nasty, blood splattered, dirty and obscene, just isn't malicious. If you enjoy dark humour then this stuff has reset the bar at a darker shade of black. Amy Smart and Jason Statham "team up" once more, proving that anytime anywhere is a great time.
Would I watch Crank 3? I don't know. Maybe if I took some valium first.
A brilliant follow up to Crank 1. Full on adrenaline speed rush full of mayhem/chaos and humour. Not for the faint hearted or for those who like their movies tame. Left me wanting more! Bring on Crank 3.
Do not waste your time!! I am a big Jason fan, but I could only tolerate 15 minutes of this poorly conceived First-Person-Shooter game mock-up with failed attempts at sarcastic humor. What a pile of... Read more... (You get it, I was horribly disappointed after wanting to see it so bad.)
This is truly one of the greatest sequels of all time! But sadly because of this fact, the movie actually gallops its' way into the abyss of forgetable movies. It is my heartfelt belief that the makers... Read more of this film took the best of Crank 1, then added the worst elements of every D grade movie in history, then threw them altogether into a blender, and Crank 2 'High Voltage' was what we ended up with. Chelios the Brave, Chelios the Man, Chelios the Eternal....whatever name you gave him in Crank 1, starts out with a whimsical scene where Chelios is scraped from the tarsealed road with a spade. Which is segwayed with a brief yet accurate reminder of what happened at the end of Crank 1. Now if you watched Crank 1, saw the ending and thought to yourself, 'damn, there will never be another Crank' then literally smiled to yourself when you heard that there was going to be another one, and you haven't yet watched it....I beg you to reconsider watching it at all...once you have seen Crank 2 there is no way you can go back to the days of looking back on Crank 1 as an all time 'wicked' movie. There are a few suprises, and there are a few really good moments, but a good movie, this will sadly never be. Two out of Ten...one for the stars who came back for the 2nd installment, and two for the effort of going through the process, I mean they gave it a shot!
Amazing, creative, and totally ridiculous film. Making no attempts to reconcile with reality and frequently jumping away to bizarre tangents, it never takes itself seriously enough to be ridiculed;... Read more it's already laughing with you. Topped with an excellent soundtrack by the one and only Mike Patton, prepare yourself for an hilarious ride alongside an inexplicably indestructible man and those unfortunate enough to be in his way.
If you liked the 1st Crank, you'll like this one. More fast paced action, more half naked women, and a few laughs thrown in for good measure. I particularly enjoyed Bai Ling's role
Really funny, and action packed. Although we thought the fight scene with the muppets was lame.
I think i really liked the original Crank - I must have because this has been on my Fatso list for ages. Anyway - sadly this outing is just awful I am beginning to doubt my opinion of the first. Basically... Read more the same film but with electricity Crank 2 has the same mental energy of the first but seems more offensive and is no longer fresh or original. It's all boobs, dick jokes, mutilation and other such things. I really felt ridiculous watching this one and not being a 12 year old boy. Avoid (unless you are a 12 year old boy).
Was a fantastic movie should be a cult movie the funniest action movie i have seen . these guys are clever a brilliant follow up to crank 1 should watch both in a row. jason statham is fantastic
it was too violent and to be honest made no sense to me
