Editorial Reviews

There are a thousand ways to raise your adrenaline, and today hit many Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) will need every one! He has one hour to settle the score and say good-bye to his girl and go out with a little style! The only question is, will he stay alive long enough to see it happen?

5.0 out of 5 stars One Helluva Wild Ride - Buckle Up! November 26, 2006
Format:DVD
Say this for "Crank," it definitely isn't boring. And it is certainly original and audacious. It is also ridiculous and will not hold up under any scrutiny. I, however, dismiss all logical criticisms of this movie, and any like it, with a wave of the hand. This movie exists solely to pop, rock and shock the audience. It is fake, over the top, ridiculous and outrageous. And that is precisely why it is one of the freshest, funniest and best pure action flicks in a long while. Sure there are more studied and complex action thrillers out there, but this is the most fun, junk-action pic this side of "Road House" and its cult action ilk. Not just a dumb campfest though, mind you; oh it's certainly none too brainy, but it has aspirations to shock and thrill beyond just having a bunch of guys shoot at each other or crash cars into things. There is a lot of that here, but the scenarios that spawn such things have to be seen to be believed. Ditto this movie. Everything here is taken to another level. Logical restrictions be damned. And the movie, and audience, is better for it.

There is, of course, already a movie called "Speed," and a terrific one at that; but had the title not been taken, this film would personify truth in advertising had it been able to use it. In a plot similar to the Keaue Reeves VS the bus classic, hitman and all around bad-a*s (we know this because he grimaces and talks in one of those threatening whispers ala Clint Eastwood and Steven Seagal) Jason Statham is injected with a virus known as "The Beijing Cocktail" that will explode his heart if its rate drops too low.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crank is one over the top adrenaline rush of a movie! January 9, 2007
Format:Blu-ray
I just finished watching one heck of a crazy movie on Blu-ray DVD called Crank. This is one of the best looking and sounding movies on blu-ray to date! Crank is about a hit man named Chev Chelios (Jason Statham of Transporter 1 and 2), who messes up one of his jobs and lets the guy get away. The next morning when he wakes up he realizes he has been drugged. While Chev was sleeping, one of the town thugs named Ricky Verona had injected him with a lethal Chinese drug called the Beijing Cocktail which will kill him in one hour. Chev now is fighting for his life, and must be constantly moving by keeping his adrenalin pumping or his heart will stop and he will die. Crank is a movie that is way over the top at times and even sometimes just plain silly, but it keeps your attention and entertains you the entire time. Many people have criticized this movie for being too over the top, fake, ridiculous and outrageous. I agree with them but to a point. This movie is one action packed thrill ride with a crazy sense of humor. Crank has so much blood and violence at times that you find yourself just grossing out at all the blood and hacking off of body parts. On the other hand the humor and action are what give a great balance to this movie, and I mean some crazy humor. If you like action packed movies with non stop action and in the tradition of Running Scared and Kill Bill check out Crank.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Chev! September 5, 2006
Edmund O'Brien, in a 1950 film "Dead on Arrival" walks into a Police station and says, "I want to report a murder." Policeman asks: "Who's?" O'Brien replies: "My Own."
Mark Neveldine and Mark Taylor's (writers and co-directors) take on this 50 year+ material is the caustic, crazy, dizzying (do not sit too close to the screen or you will hurl), profane, bloody, violent "Crank" starring the sterling Jason Statham (2 "Transporters" as well as "Cellular" and "The Italian Job" and though I think that Daniel Craig will make a terrific James Bond, just think of the spin that Statham would have made on thee ole 007).
"Crank's" twist on this old chestnut of a story is that rogue Hitman Chev (short for Chevrolet, maybe?) Chelios (Statham) is injected with a new Millennium potion that is supposed to kill him in an hour unless he keeps moving as this stuff depletes his body of adrenaline: and move he does indeed from Beverly Hills to downtown L.A. robbing, killing, driving a car through the Glendale Galleria, causing havoc all along the way.
It's all a lot of irreverent and even ironic fun and Statham and Amy Smart as his ditsy girlfriend Eve are more than up to the task of being sexy and attractive. "Crank" will never win any awards but it sure is a fun way to spend an hour or so and what more can you ask of a film now that the so-called blockbusters have come and thankfully gone away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Puerile, vulgar and offensive! March 22, 2008
Format:DVD
Hired assassin, Chev Chelios (Jason Statham, who seems to be shaping up to being the next Bruce Willis), wakes up one morning to discover that he has been injected with "the Beijing cocktail", a chemical that will ultimately kill him by slowing his heartbeat until it stops. The only way for him to avoid death is to keep his heart beating by indulging in activities that will cause an adrenaline rush. From cocaine sniffing, to high speed car chases, to some more extreme activities that I won't spoil and which have to be seen to be believed, Chelios is prepared to do anything in order to stay alive long enough to save his drug addled girlfriend (Amy Smart) and exact revenge on his would-be killer.

"Crank" borrows heavily on "Speed" and "D.O.A", but takes these stories one step further. The film contains so much action that even an ADD sufferer will be entertained and jokes aimed squarely at the type of people who made "American Pie" a run-away success. One review I read in a newspaper when this film was released branded it as being puerile, vulgar and offensive. I agree whole-heartedly with this assessment. However, it was because it was so puerile, vulgar and offensive that I enjoyed it so much. The makers of this film were not aiming to win the Best Picture Oscar. What they were aiming for was to make an entertaining and fun action film that can cause a whole cinema of people to cheer the hero along, and based on the reactions of the people whom I saw this film with, they succeeded. Now I can't wait until Neverdine and Taylor's next film is released.

Apologies to folks who enjoyed this film. I like Statham, but Crank was just too risque for this great-granny. Much prefer Statham's movie, Homefront.
