Editorial Reviews

Crank: 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? Crank 2: You can't keep a good man down. Jason Statham is back as Chev Chelios - this time to retrieve his stolen heart (that's right, he's running on battery power). High-octane and truly electrifying!

Format: Blu-ray
I myself have not experienced any issues watching either film as numerously complained about all over the web and on most of the other reviews here. Crank 1 takes itself a touch more seriously while 2 just completely blurs the lines between reality and goofiness. I love both films for what they are, adrenaline packed action with an unrealistic story and concept.

The issue most people are referring to is that with older players the crank 2 disc works fine, but with newer ones that do not have a built in hard drive to receive updates the disc will sometimes not work. Or will work in weird ways. It seems this update forces itself to download and then if it isn't able to be received it wonks out the film. Two things to clear this up, first off get your blu-ray player online with the most up to date firmware installed, and secondly if the blu ray player doesn't have a hard drive built in. Such as my own (Samsung BD-c5500). Then just plug a USB stick of 1gb or higher on any of the player's ports and it will download the updates and work fine for any BD-Live enabled film including this one.

I hadn't received any updates at all when putting in this disc, and cannot even find any of the LG-Live/BD-Live content. Where on a disc like the expendables the content is in plain site, either they removed it for future prints, or perhaps I'm just not looking where I am supposed to?

The picture quality and sound is excellent, the movies are lots of fun but very mature in nature and not meant for kids or people who can't handle, nudity, lot's of cursing, and violence.

I give this set an A grade wise. Statham kicks A** in these ;)

The problem is the BD Live needs somewhere to store updates, if there isn't any internal or external memory on your blu-ray player you will get that small annoying square in the center of your TV screen. The good news is that it is easy to resolve simply by adding memory with a SD Card or USB flash drive.

Old blu-ray players may not have a problem, as that hardware lacks any BD Live functionality. And naturally, if you own a PS3, the title plays without problems because of the built in hard drive.

This review is for the fomatting - the movies themselves are great.
On Crank 2 all that appears of the video is a 4" square that makes the movie
unwatchable and the pair of movies uncollectable - was returned.

In the reviews some say you need to add a usb flash drive so the disc will detect
the extra space for updates etc and the 4" box will go to normal size for watching.

If thats true, that should be explained in the Blu-Ray description. I wasted a lot of time ordering
the set, screwing around with my blu-ray player and TV (and then finding out it was the disc!),
and then ultimately returning the set. I ended up buying the DVD - couldn't find on Blu-Ray.

Crank 1:

Pros:

Original Story
Keeps your attention until the end
Very dark and realistic ending
Great action
Surreal and cool moments
Over the top and zany

Cons:

None in my opinion

Crank 2:

Pros:

More of the over the top zaniness from the first film
Ways they outdo the first film

Cons:

More like Crank 1.5 than a true sequel
Not as original as the first film

Overall both movies are great and I had no problem watching them on my ps3.

The first movie was great! Continuous, nonstop action. A couple of scenes I didn't like (watched it with my teenagers). The second movie, I didn't like as much. I don't like to watch movies as a family that center around the sex scenes. Besides that, it was pretty good. Like others have stated, I had to get a usb memory drive to plug into my blueray player. After that, it played perfectly. I'm not sure why the movie was made the way that it was. I have to say thank you to Amazon for providing these reviews! If not for that, I would've never found out how to make this movie play correctly! Thanks to all the reviews out there that helped me out.

You can't beat this price for two blu ray movies. The fact that it is part 1 & part 2 of crank makes it great. Sometimes you get value packs and it's one movie you want and one movie from 1976 only your dad has watched and he didn't much care for it. I'd say buy this, it's worth it. I'm not going to explain the plot for you, but the movies are good. I just wanted to comment that the value you get is worth the cost and the quality of the packaging and the disks are first rate. Nothing cheap about this disk set, simple yes, but well manufactured.

These are OK movies if you are a Jason Statham fan. High-Octane Fast Paced Action Movies.... ::Warning :: Crank 2 will NOT play in most Blu-Ray Players for some reason due to how it was formatted I think, but don't quote me on that I'm not a electronics buff...It does however play in all Sony Playstation 3's. That is how I was able to watch Crank 2.

It arrived in good condition and we enjoyed Crank until we put in Crank 2 and it seemed to default to play on TV screen within a 2inch by 2inch...after all the reset, checks etc., it still can't play properly. A little disappointed!
