It's an E-ticket ride. But in the end, there's no heart, no moral to this story. And for all our sweat as viewers, the one thing we crave by Crank's closing credits is detox.

'Crank' fires on all cylinders but is fundamentally just an excuse to piece together a nasty trail of mayhem dotted with morbid jokes.

Its freneticism ... futilely tries to cover up the ludicrousness of every decision made by its dim characters.

Crank is still an atrocity of visual design, acting, and fundamental storytelling that, at times, scarily resembles an especially smelly YouTube submission.

A reckless, relentless rush that goes nowhere in an exhausting 83 minutes.

For those who take delight from movie junk fare, Crank is your just dessert.

It may stretch that hour a bit, but it doesn't waste a minute -- though it wastes everything else in its immediate vicinity. Your time as well? Not unless you don't have the stomach for wholesale property damage, mutilation and needles.

Statham, who's tailor-made for this kind of thing, nevertheless spends too much time doing his cool-menace thing to communicate the sort of urgency the (semblance of a) plot demands.

While Crank has its moments, the line stringing them together isn't wound taut enough.

If you had the choice of doing "crank" or seeing the film Crank, I'd strongly suggest the former as a more productive use of your time.

Jason Stratham rampages through Los Angeles in this retread of Speed, but for a movie premised on unrelenting action, Crank proves fatally turgid.

This is as detestable a hard-R offense (equal-opportunity offender though it may be) as has ever been released to theaters.

A movie for hooligans, and do we really want to encourage them?

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Crank works overtime to be a disreputable bit of pulp fiction, and for the first half or so it's like inhaling the cinematic equivalent of the film's title.

For all its busyness, Crank never develops much momentum, not least because an exploding heart doesn't carry quite the same stakes as an exploding bus.

Like so much contemporary entertainment, Crank is a frenzied distraction that means nothing.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

'D.O.A.' for the 'Grand Theft Auto' generation, 'Crank' is too scattershot to hone in on the cult masterpiece waiting within its brilliant exploitation premise.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Some of the directing touches are fun, but the Grand Theft Auto overdrive wears thin quick.
