Product Details

Product Description

Action anti-hero Jason Statham is competing with himself to make the most relentless, non-stop action flick imaginable. In Crank, tatham stars as a hit man named Chev Chelios who's been poisoned by some Chinese toxin; the only way to stave it off is to keep his adrenalin flowing, which requires him to drive at top speeds through crowded traffic, start fights in bars, and run pell-mell down hospital corridors while wearing one of those humiliating smocks that tie in the back. In other words, Crank is high-end pop-trash, filled with many preposterous/ingenious stunts and over-the-top performances (Dwight Yoakam, Sling Blade, is downright droll as a doctor offering Chev assistance), marred by an unpleasant attitude towards women (Amy Smart, Outside Providence, will not look back on this as one of her signature roles). This is a movie for the audience who enjoyed Transporter and Transporter 2 but wanted Statham's perpetual scowl to become a kind of theatrical mask, a perpetual signifier of intensity that begs--nay, demands--that everything around it rise to a mutual level of absurdity. Fans of Luc Besson (Leon / The Professional, District 13) will find Crank to be simpatico. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved this movie July 11 2009
I think the people who said "the movie sucked" have missed the context of the movie. I watched it after finishing Grand Theft Auto: SA. You see how the title is a Old Style Video Game and how the Map shows up like a video game? That's the point, I got a huge kick out of this movie because I watched it at the right time and in the right context. It's GTA on the big screen and I loved it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jason Statham just never stops June 23 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
thought this movie was decent but my husband heavily enjoyed it of course. Its "B" type movie, not a serious, not a critic movie. It is a movie for the people with a simple plot that allows great, heart-pumping action. Crank starts off with superficially appealing opening titles over glass-shattering rock music, and once the movie starts going, it presents itself as an obvious entry in the race-against- time category of movies. Despite points where I would either drastically change a scene or just leave it the hell out, there are some fun moments, such as when Statham tries to evade police by racing his car through a mall and making it up an escalator in it, and when he runs through a hospital desperate for an adrenaline hit.

Honestly, I found Statham's performance in Crank to be possibly one of his best. He continues his career with a lack of versatility the genre of movies he tends to be cast in, with the exception of the romantic comedy London, but his character is unlike any of the other generally wooden, raspy-voiced, earthily cynical characters he's played since his first role. Lock, Stock, Snatch, the Transporter films, and even Cellular showcase him in practically identical roles. In Crank, which involves gangsters, shootouts and other high-over-the-top action sequences, and a character's fatal deadline, themes that you can find in each of the films previously mentioned, he is shown in a role as an aggressive, hasty, impulsive, and highly temperamental person. I mean, when has Statham ever raised his voice or conveyed emotion in any of his films? Here, he does, and that makes it a much more likable role than if it were played by most other action stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars So silly it's hilarious March 13 2014
Surprisingly I enjoyed this film. I thought the editing was creative and Jason would probably be great in a bona fide spy spoof. I mean who pulls off a robbery or drives away from the cops through a shopping center while talking on the phone. Seeing his car go up the escalator was good for a chuckle. If it sounds like I'm a Jason Statham fan - I am. Some movies are not so good but are worth watching because of the star. Like Liam Neeson in Taken 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Ol' Popcorn Action Flick! Jan. 21 2007
This movie isn't meant to have any meaning or even a sensible plot; the one we get is as loose as you can get. It's just a good excuse for some senseless violence, a car chase and some rather quite funny moments, all for the pure pleasure of entertainment. If you like action movies or just wanna spend a few hours having a good time on the couch than this movie is for you.
