Funny as fuck. Had a blast with this.
Filmmakers: If you're going to make a dumb action movie, make this. Smaller, faster, and less serious is almost always better. Nobody needs Transformers, ever.
Crank is not what I'd call a great piece of filmmaking. It is, however, what I'd call a great example of a hyperkinetic piece of entertainment so unabashedly excessive, outrageous and completely insane I cannot help but admire it for those qualities. Within the opening 5 minutes, I was already along for the ride, after a great opening sequence which puts you right into the shoes of Chev Chelios through a disorienting POV shot. Jason Statham rules the film with his trademark deadpan attitude, which fits perfectly given that someone has to acknowledge within the film itself the absurdity of his dilemma. Although the film runs a little out of steam by the time Amy Smart shows up and the final half hour doesn't live up to the frenetic insanity of the opening 45 minutes, Crank is a great choice to spend 90 minutes to witness some over the top craziness.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
