Yet another D.O.A. for the ADD era.

In Crank: High Voltage, Statham just looks miserable, as if appearing in this lousy picture just sucked all the heart right out of him.

Crank: High Voltage, starring Jason Statham as a man with a machine instead of a heart, is boorish, bigoted and borderline pornographic.

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.

The movie feels like a form of aversion therapy designed to take the fun out of dumb.

It's so amped up that High Voltage suffers its own energy shortage well before the finale. It's also every bit as stupid as it sounds.

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.

There's not enough here for me to recommend it without reservations to anyone outside of that narrow target audience.

Writer-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have written their own set of action-comedy challenges, and they slam-dunk pretty much every one.

As usual, Statham anchors the proceedings with his simmering charisma and impressive physicality.

For all its ADD editing, it's a joyless slog.

The result, an eye-popping strobe of flesh and blood, is as visually stunning as it is absurdly offensive, sure to thrill some while leaving others in a state of outrage-induced catatonia.

Crank High Voltage delivers everything it promises -- if it were a politician, it'd have my vote.

The whole film is a series of frenetically-edited action sequences and bizarre set-pieces roughly stitched together to form some kind of whole. It's been made with tongue firmly in cheek and is often funny for it.
