Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) gets the short end of the stick in a one-sided body part trade, after falling from a helicopter at the end of the first movie.
2. He escapes when he learns which part is next up on the list.
3. The battery for his Chinese-implanted artificial heart has to be charged frequently, by any means possible.
4. "Any means" in this case involves a lot of gratuitous violence, public exhibitionism, corny humor, a crazy hooker, a gay man with Tourette's Syndrome and even a couple of dream sequences.
5. This is a movie only a guy could love.

This one totally failed for me, but I can see why it would appeal to some audiences. Too bizarre and cranked up for my taste, but to each his own.

Poor Amanda, looks like all the movies you've seen recently have been luke warm in terms of their spot on the rating scale. Hopefully you'll come across some better ones...how are you doing?

*** out of ****     If you liked "Crank", then here's some good news: they made a sequel. But if you were one of those many critical grouches that didn't like "Crank", then they've made another sequel that's bound to piss you off. Luckily, I liked the first "Crank" and on the contrary, I liked "Crank: High Voltage" even more. "High Voltage" isn't much better than the first film, although it does have a few more crazy-ass tricks up its sleeve. I can't really say it differs much …

I enjoyed Crank, it's action packed, and even though it's very over the top, it has some semblance of a story and have great pacing, I was on the edge of my seat throughout the movie and was thoroughly entertained.  The director must have taken what made the first movie successful to heart when he made the sequel.  Crank: High Voltage has everything dialed up to 11 compared to the first film.  For some it may be a good thing, but it was WAY too much for me and the characters …

The formula to this would be
   High Voltage is essential for those that like their junk movies tasteless and baseless. I for one is pretty versatile when it comes to films and for those who know me can vouch for it. After I’d seen Crank 1 I couldn't wait to see Crank 2. It moves at such a frantic pace that you will probably miss a few things during the first viewing so I had to see it twice.   For those of you who don’t know story wise, don't sweat it. It's just as bad as the previous installment. …

fast paced action movie about a man who will die if he doesnt keep his adrenaline flowing. A must see.

“CRANK” was quite an experience. The movie just basically channels its strength from just how outrageous and over-the-top the scenes can get, it was basically a cartoonish display of violence and mayhem. I didn’t exactly figure that writers/directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor would come up with a sequel considering the way “Crank” ended. Well, buckle up, fellas, Neveldine and Taylor have unleashed “CRANK 2: High Voltage” and it is definitely bigger, …
