I enjoyed how unique the first Crank film was and this sequel is even more wild, but I liked it a lot less. Crank: High Voltage is a roller coaster ride that last 85 minutes and features some really gross scenes. For example, a guy getting a shotgun rammed up his rear end isn't even in the top three weird moments in this flick. There was one scene where a guy had to punish himself for letting his boss down, which I had to turn my head and look away (I can't remember the last time I did that). There is almost zero realism here, much like the original, only multiplied by a hundred. Jason Statham is the main action star in the business right now and he is pretty good at what he does. He went all out here and I'm sure he has nothing but bruises and a nice paycheck to show for it. The large supporting cast was better than average and Amy Smart was especially yummy. If you liked Crank (2006) you will probably enjoy this one well enough, but I think they should put this series to rest. Judging by the ending during the credits, I'm sure we can expect Crank 3-D: Zombie Chev in the near future.

How much abuse can one body take? When we last left Chev Chelios (Jason Statham), he had fallen from a helicopter, bounced off a car, and landed on a street in the middle of Los Angeles. And this was after being injected with a toxin that stopped the production of adrenaline. Now he finds himself in the middle of an operating room, his still-beating heart removed from his chest and replaced with an artificial version that's hooked up to a battery. When the battery gets destroyed, he's left with only an implanted backup generator, and in order for that to keep working, he must keep himself electrically charged. Sometimes, that involves sticking his finger into a car socket. At other times, that involves clamping jumper cables to his nipple and tongue, at which point the person behind the wheel hits the accelerator.

The original "Crank" was shameless, high octane fun, and so is "Crank: High Voltage," a film that doesn't know the meaning of the word "excessive." There's not a trace of humility to be found in any one of its ninety-six minutes. It's an unabashedly crude crime caper that uses four-letter dialogue as if being paid by the letter. It's an in-your-face assault on the senses, a hyperactive video game that never makes use of the pause button. Normally, these would be the hallmarks of a God-awful film, but in this case, they're the hallmarks of a stylish thrill ride that's just as funny as it is shocking. It's a movie so audacious in its insanity that I pretty much have to recommend it; it may not be the most edifying thing you'll ever see, but it certainly will be the most unforgettable hour-and-a-half you've had all spring.

An excellent sequel that manages to not only surpass the 1st in excessiveness,(e.g. action, violence, crude yet humorous dialogue,) but also turn out to be an excellent film simultaneously. It does more than just pick up where the first movie left off, it actually incorporates the last 5-minutes or so to make one of the more seamless transitions I have ever seen in a movie-arc. While not family friendly, for the bachelor(ette) looking to amuse oneself with a hypothetical classic, "what if Superman & the Terminator got in a fight..." realization, this film does not disappoint. And, like all of Jason Statham's movies the non-stop cinematic action overflows like a volcanic eruption. Sure the plot is shallow but the creative applications of violence, no matter how unrealistic, make for a good show that overall deserves 4-stars. So why the 1-star rating you ask? It is because the distributors decided to make the disc unplayable on, literally,90% of all conventional BD-players. BD-version of the movie will only play back correctly on Profile 2 Blu-ray players with internal memory (or connected external USB).If you try play the disc on a Profile 2 player without sufficient memory available, the film itself will be visible only in a small, distorted onscreen window. To rectify the problem 1GB+ external memory need to be added to your player. Interestingly, older Profile 1.0/1.1 machines will not have a problem as that hardware lacks any BD Live functionality. Additionally, if you own a PS3, the title plays without problems. Lionsgate has admitted to the issue with the disc, but denied the Studio was at fault; curious as while it common for Blu-ray owners to be notified that not all functionality may be available on particular players, due to memory constraints, this is the first disc I am aware of, that restricts access to the movie itself. My recommendation...by the standard DVD, and watch it on your BD-player; it will up-convert anyway.

This movie made me feel like I was high and drunk while watching an action film, I don't really know how to explain that, but it was an awesome feeling. I also thought it was extremely hilarious and it was a really good sequel. After three months, Chev Chelios is back in action, and tries to find his heart before he dies. Doc Miles tells him that the Chinese gave him an AbioCor Artificial heart, and he must keep it charged, or he will die. He has jumper cables helping him, rubbing up against an old woman, makin' sweet love to his girlfriend, Eve on a horse race track, and grabbing electric wires. I highly recommend CRANK 2: HIGH VOLTAGE!!!
