Crank 2: High Voltage Reviews
I was wrong.
If anything, "Crank: High Voltage" is actually even more obscene, bizarre, profane, sick and twisted than the first film. In comparison to "Crank"'s original fast/drug-fueled pace -- this twisted sequel is even more frantic in pace. I'm not even sure how to compare the manic way this film propels itself forward.
Once again, Jason Statham, Amy Smart and Dwight Yoakam manage to amp their bold, broad and hysterical performances to match these two filmmaker's devotion to the obscenity that is essentially Crank 2.
Everything is bigger, faster, more transgressive, sicker and -- well, "wrong-er" -- If we thought Statham and Smarts' sex scene in the first film was funny, here the same idea is taken to a whole new level of perversity.
Poor Jason Statham pushes the envelop with the deft-defying action sequences. They are jaw-dropping.
This is an even more fun gleeful speed race through the inappropriate humor, strangely-involved plot and convulsive violence than the first film.
Can't believe it, but this sequel is better than the first film
I really and truly love the "Crank" movies. In their own deeply sick and twisted hearts. ...please note I have pluralized the word "heart." -- this movie is firmly hellbent on beating its first chapter with sheer defiance and incorrect logic.
