Crank: High Voltage Movie Review

I was asking my boo to choose which movie to watch last night between Crank: High Voltage or X-Men Origins: Wolverine. To be honest I was more inclined towards X-Men Origins: Wolverine but my boo has a mild dislike towards comic super heroes movie adaptations. Based on the title of this movie review its a giveaway answer to which movie she chose to watch last night: Crank: High Voltage.

Jason Statham returns as Chev Chelios in Crank: High Voltage which is a direct sequel to Crank (2006). Crank: High Voltage is a 2009 American action/thriller movie written and directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor who both also did the same for the previous movie. Crank: High Voltage is rated R due to the strong pervasive language and nudity as well as graphical sexual content and not forgetting the huge amounts of blood and gore found in the movie.

For those uninitiated, Chev Chelios is a super tough guy one man army who is at the top of the triads and mobsters most wanted list. Someone stole his heart (literary) and he has to find it and get it back inside his body before his implanted artificial heart runs out of power. I think the directors and producers wanted to make Crank: High Voltage a super extreme "Pushing it to the max!" adrenaline rushing action movie in which they succeeded.

I must stress that Crank: High Voltage is strictly not for the younger audiences and those who are offended by onscreen nudity. And every minute in the movie you are bound to hear some pervasive language in the dialogue. Here is a excerpt from the imdb parental guide on Crank: High Voltage: "200-something f-bombs and over 2-dozen s-words lead the pack. In addition, there are 4 or 5 uses of c**t."

If you enjoyed the first movie then you will feel right at home with Crank: High Voltage. Generally Crank: High Voltage is an extreme action movie which is tailored for the more mature audience in mind. I personally feel that it has overused the f-bomb too much but seeing the nature of the movie it is unavoidable.

I'm a huge fan of the first film, but never had a chance to see the second. You can bet that I'll be picking up this installation on blu-ray!
