The whole film is a series of frenetically-edited action sequences and bizarre set-pieces roughly stitched together to form some kind of whole. It s been made with tongue firmly in cheek and is often funny for it.
Crank High Voltage delivers everything it promises -- if it were a politician, it d have my vote.
The result, an eye-popping strobe of flesh and blood, is as visually stunning as it is absurdly offensive, sure to thrill some while leaving others in a state of outrage-induced catatonia.
For all its ADD editing, it s a joyless slog.
As usual, Statham anchors the proceedings with his simmering charisma and impressive physicality.
