November 7, 2009 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.

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

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.

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.

Tasteless, trashy and totally over the top, Crank: High Voltage might also be one of the year's most inventive movies. Sometimes, nothing exceeds like excess.

Better not operate any heavy machinery after an eyeful of Crank: High Voltage

If someone was charged with creating a graphic, bizarre cartoon for adults, that someone might conceive of 'Crank 2: High Voltage,' one of the most insanely outrageous movies ever made.

You're liable to watch the whole thing with an expression of bafflement on your face, surprised, delighted, and alarmed by what you're seeing.

Crank: High Voltage is the superior of the two films not because it knows it's a second helping of something that is all empty calories, but because it's simply more than the other one.

Not everyone has a taste for gun-wielding strippers and Godzilla parodies, but for those who do, Crank High Voltage is like a 1,000-volt shot to the heart.

Crank: High Voltage promises something outrageous and then over-delivers, permanently deflowering and deforming the mind of anyone lucky enough to be in the audience.
