Movie Info

After surviving an incredible plunge to near-certain death, Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) is abducted by Chinese mobsters. Waking up three months later, Chev finds that his nearly indestructible heart has been replaced with a battery-operated device that requires regular jolts of electricity or it will fail. Chev escapes from his captors, reunites with his lover, Eve (Amy Smart), and sets out on a frantic chase through Los Angeles to get his real heart back.

Audience Reviews for Crank: High Voltage

  • Sep 16, 2013
    Fast-paced, adrenaline-filled and out-of-place at times. The Neveldine/Taylor combination are back at it with Crank 2: High Voltage, but it's a slight slump from it's predecessor, with the amount of lackluster material that tends to wander off the subject. Regardless, it's still a somewhat-decent, junkie-filled action picture. 3.5/5

    Movies like these exist in another realm. They do not make sense. They are proud of it. They celebrate a full-testosterone, chauvinistic, sexist, semi-pornographic, parodic, overtly violent and electricity-charged tsunami of the ideas that precocious adolescents under the influence of nerve-altering hallucinogenics would have if given lots of budget, a camera and lots of porn actors incuding Ron Jeremy in the cast to work for them in order to party with basically everything that is wrong with our insane society. Yes, I love it. This is art. 57/100

    Chev Chelios is back for more mayhem and violence in Crank: High Voltage. When Chev Chelios awakens to find himself being kept alive for organ harvesting he goes on a wild rampage throughout L.A. to get his heart back, which has been sold off to a Chinese gangster. Writer/director team Neveldine & Taylor take everything to an extreme, and it doesn't work. The film is a chaotic mess, and there's no time to get to know or care about the characters. While its audaciousness is impressive, Crank: High Voltage doesn't amount to anything but a bunch of noise.

    Totally insane, fast paced entertainment. Jason Statham is back, going full-throttle. I'm glad all of the original cast returned including Amy Smart and Dwight Yoakam. There is this one scene that's kind of dumb: it's Chelios vs. this Chinese guy who carries his heart in a red cooler. Instead of using the actual actors, the scene changes into a Godzilla type of fight with two fake look-alike dummies on a fake set. I get the Godzilla reference, but it was still a little pointless. And another dumb scene is at the end, when we see a guy's head in a water tank being supported by tubes to keep him alive. Not only is this completely impossible, it looks totally fake and ridiculous. While Crank 2 may not be as original as the first, it's funnier and perhaps a little more entertaining than the first. If you can get past the unrealistic aspects of it, you'll really have fun with it like I did. Bring on Crank 3.
