It's trashy, gory, gratuitous, ridiculous, completely far-fetched, and I had a smile on my face the entire time.

Gets by on a unique kind of absurd, deadpan humor in which the most implausible stuff cheerfully happens anyway.

Sure, Crank is totally ridiculous, unbelievable, exhausting, and pretty much just plain stupid, but that's what makes it fun.

Ranks among the most mindless action films ever made, but scores as a helluva video game.

The super-concentrated silt at the bottom of a chemistry experiment that has no possible purpose to it but to deliver whatever limited jolt of which it's capable.

Assaults the senses tirelessly with wave after wave of momentum-building intensity, with Jason Statham enjoying his best role since The Transporter.

A cheerily lunatic slice of B-movie heaven.

Demented, depraved and probably bad for your soul in the long run, the pedal-to-the-metal action film "Crank" nonetheless provides a jolt of pure, uncut movie-making.

[A] monotonously mindless but colorful caper.Crank is banally boisterous...jolting junk that strangely is filling in its sneering, rambunctious spirit.

The question isn't whether Jason Statham knows how to Crank things up. The question is whether or not you're willing to go with him on yet another highly implausible, blood-soaked, adrenaline-pumped ride.

Elaborately aggressive and provocative, Crank is just what its title suggests: fast, ornery, and exhausting.
