What a crazy adrenaline packed movie. Jason Statham in one of his craziest, but best performances. This movie is an action junkies dream, fully loaded with one scene after another with a great script and some cool twists.

I really liked Jason Statham in "Transporter" so I thought this movie would be good. I was so disappointed. This movie is boring and pointless. Nothing but foul language and so-so action scenes. Don't waste your time or money. Skip this one.

This film is one of the most exciting, dynamic films to hit the screen (it would smash through, if it could). It is a thrill-ride from the first frame to the last, and the cast headed by Mr. Statham and the stunning Ms. Smart will make every improbable situation work for the audience. It's got it all ... graphic violence, foul language a-plenty, and the smoldering sexuality of Ms. Smart and Mr. Statham (yes, they do get hot 'n heavy here, kids)! It is no holds barred entertainment of the highest caliber! Bravo!

Wow this was an unexpectantly good movie. Mixed humor and pure action, this movie will keep your attention to the very end!

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor may be fairly new at the game of writing and directing as a team, but if CRANK is any indication of what they can do, they probably have the genre sewn up! Definitely not a film for the squeamish or the easily offended by potty mouth dialog, CRANK delivers its own brand of breakneck action and very funny comedic outtakes into a platform for the likes of Jason Statham, so well remembered for his role in Transporter/s, and a cast that gives him fine support. Chev Chelios (Statham, in fine fettle but oddly keeping his shirt on to for once cover his physique...) is a contract killer who has just snuffed a man the local drug dealers in LA are not happy about: relationships between LA and Hong Kong have been strained. As a result one peppy bodybuilder hunk named Verona (Jose Pablo Cantillo) injects him with an adrenaline-blocking drug that gives Chev only an hour to live. And thus starts the action: Chev must find medication or an antidote within the hour or he will die. Chev informs his girlfriend Eve (gifted comedienne Amy Smart) of his crisis but Eve is so ditzy she doesn't comprehend, leaving very little brain cell action to help Chev. The story is a bit shallow but that really doesn't get in the way when the purpose of the movie is to see just how violent and how many kills and disasters can be created before the final bizarre ending. Statham and Smart make a great team, giving some of the best humor imaginable in a story that is basically humorless. Good casting here. But also the actors who portray the ancillary parts - Cantillo as the embodiment of buff evil, Efren Ramirez as Chev's reliable ally, Dwight Yoakam as his disjointed doctor, Carlos Sanz as the head bad guy, Reno Wilson, Edi Gathegi - are finely directed by this team of Neveldine and Taylor, making sure that there is just enough parody and gag lines to keep our minds active during the barrage of mayhem. You have to like action thrillers to watch this one, but it is one of the better flicks of its kind to come out in a while! Grady Harp

The person that said this movie is boring and slow must have been watching the wrong movie! This is one of the fastest paced movies you will ever see, filled with action from start to finish. It was a pleasant surprise, and had some really funny scened as well. My wife and I loved it.

I thought this movie was decent but my husband heavily enjoyed it of course. Its "B" type movie, not a serious, not a critic movie. It is a movie for the people with a simple plot that allows great, heart-pumping action. Crank starts off with superficially appealing opening titles over glass-shattering rock music, and once the movie starts going, it presents itself as an obvious entry in the race-against- time category of movies. Despite points where I would either drastically change a scene or just leave it the hell out, there are some fun moments, such as when Statham tries to evade police by racing his car through a mall and making it up an escalator in it, and when he runs through a hospital desperate for an adrenaline hit carelessly shoving and knocking over elderly patients with catheters and walkers. Honestly, I found Statham's performance in Crank to be possibly one of his best. He continues his career with a lack of versatility the genre of movies he tends to be cast in, with the exception of the romantic comedy London, but his character is unlike any of the other generally wooden, raspy-voiced, earthily cynical characters he's played since his first role. Lock, Stock, Snatch, the Transporter films, and even Cellular showcase him in practically identical roles. In Crank, which involves gangsters, shootouts and other high-over-the-top action sequences, and a character's fatal deadline, themes that you can find in each of the films previously mentioned, he is shown in a role as an aggressive, hasty, impulsive, and highly temperamental person. I mean, when has Statham ever raised his voice or conveyed emotion in any of his films? Here, he does, and that makes it a much more likable role than if it were played by most other action stars. The film has great momentum and everything mentioned above, but depreciates greatly from the introduction of Amy Smart's token girlfriend character. She plays her role to the fullest, but the Lambourghini ride pace of the movie is severed when her screen time starts. There's also a nonsensical and completely out-of-place sequence where Statham coerces her into having sex with her, impulsively, amidst a large crowd to keep his decreasing heart rate from plundering and thus letting the poison he's been given finally worn out. That scene was a turn off, frankly. It and a few other scenes at around this point in the movie. In the Laws and Doctrines of the Race Against Time Movie, it states that you may not slow down. Even when the plot must take expository time, you do it in a clever way where we are still gripping our chair arms. Crank is not a work of art by any standard, but it doesn't follow formula and it keeps you entertained.

Crank will kick you in the face, cinematically of course. I expected the mayhem, torture, destruction, and reckless regard for human life, but I didn't expect to laugh! You need to watch this, it's camera work and scene splicing are creative and fun to watch. Do like Chev Chelios (Stratham) and rob a convenience store of anything and everything with caffeine before you watch this!

A fun movie, enjoyable, with a dose of hilarity which seems to follow Statham's undercut acting style wherever he goes - even if he's acting psycho throughout this particular film. Action sequences abound, and some of them hold their own against the accusation of being derivative! So, apart from recommending it, I'd just have to say that I would love to have been at the meeting where they pitched this. You have to figure Statham's "prurient" scenes with the female lead inspired the whole movie, at least on some level.

This movie keeps moving at a fast pace the whole time. Great action, recommended.
