So much average
One of my all time favorites.
Best movie ever!
True to its essence, the characters remain on the same line and manage to entertain the viewer, each highlighting their own distinctive qualities or touches.
This movie is absolute garbage. Don't get me wrong, i love Jason Statham, but this movie is properly one of the worst he has ever made. I've only seen the first 30 minutes, but holy BIIP that was bad. Its just one big running and confusing scenes where you have no idea whats going on. The acting is really bad (Jason does a okay job) But the others are really bad. You really have no idea whats going on in the beginning. If you have watched Crank 1, then this is a absolute downfall from that. The plot, the actors, the camera are just bad. I really hope for the sake of the movie that it gets better after the first 30 min, because that was literally the most non-fun action part i've ever seen.
This was equally as good as the first Crank, although in saying that you've also then seen it all before so it loses some of its uniqueness and crazy charm.Anyways, its another adrenaline filled hot mess, with indestructible hit man Chev Chelios trying to find the Chinese Gangster who harvested his heart. He's been outfitted with an electronic one that requires a blast of electricity to keep pumping as he again wreaks havoc on LA in his quest.All the faces from the original return (in very clever ways) as well as Bai Ling who was just freakin' nuts but very in tune with the whole vibe. There was a lot of gratuitous T&A this time around and a couple scenes I actually had to turn away from (slicing off of elbows and nipples) We also get a redeux of the public sex scene, this time at the race track and it was just hilarious.I love the way this is filmed, all choppy and random. I may have seen it all before but I'd watch another one of these movies. The outtakes during the credits are very funny too. 01.15.14
I don't know what drug this murder was on. Crank 2 is so ridiculous, it becomes more so as the movie progresses, where by the end, you're so mind numbed by what you're witnessed, you're totally dumbfound, it makes the original look respectively good. Out of interest, it has me wanting to re watch the original. If only this sequel had to surface, and rob the first of it's dignity. It takes on moments later from where the first one finished, which Stratham (who I must admit can't act) taking that big fall is spared, in one of the most desperate and idiotic excuses for a sequel I've ever seen. Why couldn't we just let him fall and die, which would of been the writers prior intention. But later sequel temptation must of got the best of him. Stratham's old heart is replaced with an artificial heart, where he must keep cranking it, anyway he can, through battery voltage, or strenuous public sex with his hot girlfriend Eve. The violence is totally off the wall, some of it sheerly sick, one scene involving nipple slashing. One reason to see it, is due to it's late star, 80's heart throb, Haim, as a bouncer, looking much worse for ware. But given that, it's a great insane flick, real cheesy, with action aplus, but too is just so ludicrous which does walk a style in ludicrous respect. I mean that head, minus everything else, kept alive in that battery acid tank, while being attached to electrodes, was like the last straw. But look at this movie as just a time passing, 'leave your brain at the door flick'.
While the first movie was merely contrived surrealism, this one is utterly insane. Right after crashing to the ground, the Chinese gang scrapes Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) off the ground, and harvests his heart. He's left with an artificial heart that needs recharging every hour. Now he must track down his heart and get it back.Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor are doubling down on this crazy franchise. It gets more ridiculous, more outlandish, and more ADD. Amy Smart and Dwight Yoakam return for more. Then the B-list cameos start coming. Crazy Bai Ling is always good for her insanity. And who hasn't wanted to run her down with a car?The jokes aren't as funny this time around. While the craziness keeps coming, the action does slow down. In the first movie, he dies if he slows down. But in this one, he's suppose to slow down as the battery dies. The manic energy isn't quite so manic in this one.
