Cinema Crazed

Plays it to all heights if idiocy where suspense of disbelief is no longer an instrument to the entertainment.

Feels like shock for shock's sake instead of something morbidly inventive like the first one.

Copping to how unrealistic your movie is by excusing it (no, no, it's a video game!), rather than running with it, is a mistake that Taylor and Neveldine never recover from.

...an agreeable companion piece to its admittedly superior predecessor.

Waking up in the aftermath of a meth-lab explosion might be less disorienting than watching this. And if you think there's no room for more, Neveldine/Taylor are probably a weekend and a bag of crack-filled Pixie Stix away from proving you wrong.

Basically the co-writers and co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor sneer at any kind of rules, decorum or morality. Anything goes, as long as it's within the realm of exploitation-level "B" moviemaking.

Both exhilarating and exhausting, it falls just short of a fever pitch.

...just as sloppily caffeinated as before, with an extra layer of scummy race jokes.

The only shocking thing about it is how dull and predictable the whole enterprise is.

Adrenaline-propelled and outrageously offensive, it's a cinematic video game that's neither coherent nor credible.

Grisly, gory, over-the-top action-parody isn't for kids.

What you really get here is the same movie all over again -- only more so.

Antagony & Ecstasy

The directing and writing team of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have between them a boundless imagination, constantly topping one absurdly overstated moment with another, even more absurd.

Bigger, dumber and even sicker than the rotgut original... I had a blast, but don't say you weren't warned.

So gross, brutal and just plain bad that I may never want to see another Jason Statham movie.

Crank: High Voltage is a real celebration of the phrase "Why not?". It's big, loud and brainless - and it's all the more glorious for it.

The constant escalation to [the filmmakers'] inventive insanity is so breathtaking, it's like a slap in the face to the tired hacks who make the glossy hidebound junk that passes for an action movie these days.
