Peeping Tom, Night of the Hunter and a whole host of older films were ignored or given bad reviews upon…

This is a better remake of Speed, with Statham being the bus
Does it look like I got cunt written on my head? Who do you think you are fucking with?
Crank is an experience unlike any other. Being strapped down to a chair in a dark room and getting doped up with any and every drug under the sun designed to increase your heart rate and perspiration all the while being surrounded by dozens of TV sets blaring fragmented heavy metal music videos is the only comparable physical equivalent.
A nightmare to some**
But to a select few, Crank is a transcendent experience that has "cult status" written on its forehead. No, not the word "cunt." This film on the outside appears to be an eccentric, sleazy, stupid, dumbfoundedly bizarre…
Um... I have no idea how to review this movie. It is illogical, weird, dumb, but ITS FUN! I have never been a big fan of Jason Statham and his over the top action movies, but I kinda like this one.
Crank is, in a sense, awful. I mean it's really, really dreadful. It looks as though a madman managed to get the entire editorial facilities of a cheap piece of software, give it a chunk of footage, and randomly select one style for each scene. It's mad. It's absolutely mad. It makes no sense at all. And that's precisely why I liked it so much. No film I have ever seen better evidences the purposes of beginning a narrative in media res: "in the middle of things". It's maybe half an hour before you're given any idea whatsoever of what's actually happening, so frenetic is the pacing of the action. Normally such mania…
"You saying this is medicinal use coke, is that what you're saying?"
I'm sorry Shoot 'Em Up, you are no longer the most ridiculously over-the-top action movie I've ever seen.
This is basically 90 minutes of Jason Statham shouting at people, punching people, shooting people, crashing cars, crashing bikes, injecting himself with adrenaline and snorting cocaine off the floor.
And I have no problems with that at all.
Maravillosa última escena donde el helicóptero sobrevuela la ciudad y dos segundos después parece haber subido hasta la luna para que a nuestro héroe le dé tiempo a despedirse.
Crank is this sort of a movie who feels a Kind of wired, but in a interesting way. It is Ecstasy and crystal meth put togehter. Yes, its trash but in his finest
There were maybe five laughs in the movie. Other than that it's just total crap with nonexistent plot, god awful performances and adolecent vibes ruining what ever good there might be in the movie. Avoid.
A full syringe of ridiculousness directly into the bloodstream. So much stupid fun!
Madre mía, qué despiporre de película. Si entras en su juego, la disfrutarás como un enano.
This is a film where I really feel like I have to justify my rating, because it could easily be dismissed as nonsensical senselessness by others. To many, this is probably just another film that is too stupid for its own good and too much for anyone to care for. There is brains getting blown to pieces in this film indeed, but it is defiantly not the directors’ brains – despite of whatever crap film they might have produced beyond this one. ‘Crank’ is one of the best movies of its kind, and here is why…
I have always said that the following is one of the most important aspects of a film, and that is more than true in…
Stripped down and frantically edited but thankfully utterly absurd, Crank is excellent. The premise sizzles with potential and the film lives up to it for sure, this film is as entertaingly outrageous as it can be. Funnier than most comedies and with as much action as The Raid you would be right in thinking that Crank is a film that cares more about the entertainment factor of it than anything else. Statham delivers the material with a sense of sincerity rare in action stars. Short, sweet and very visceral Crank is a hell of a lot of fun.
Un po' sconclusionato, come tutti i passatempi scanzonati, Crank diverte il giusto e conquista con il suo essere forzatamente adrenalinico.
By far the best film I've ever watched while high. Although, the scene where Jason Statham has public sex with Amy Smart was a little too rapey for my taste.
