Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Just when you thought it couldn't get any crazier than Observe and Report, along come Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, back again after 3 years since Crank first hit. In theaters this weekend is one of the rudest, crudest, and craziest movies to grace the silver screen - Crank: High Voltage. But is it all that it's cracked up to be? Or is it just an ugly waste of time and effort? Is this Jason Statham's best role yet? Did it live up to the original or was it even worse than before? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Crank: High Voltage!
To fuel the fire, I thought Crank: High Voltage was blast, I had such a great time, from start to finish. I think only guys as crazy as Neveldine and Taylor could ever think up something like this and actually pull it off. Statham's character of Chev Chelios is easily one of the greatest characters he has ever played. There are some truly crazy scenes in this, including any involving Bai Ling (see above), and the shit that goes down when he ends up in a fight at a power plant. I might actually consider calling this one of those rare sequels that's better than the original. And what better way to end this than with another "Fuck you Chelios!"
So what did you think of Crank: High Voltage? A better sequel or just a worse movie?
