Crank 2: High Voltage (2009)

Written By Awir Aditya on Sunday, January 24, 2010 | 5:22 AM


Genre: Crime/Comedy/Action

Starring: Jason Statham, Amy Smart, Ling Bai, Art Hsu, Efren Ramirez, Joseph Julian Soria

Chev Chelios (Statham) cant just seem to keep his head out of shit. F*** you Chelios is what everyone tells him and he rightly deserves it. The Triad gang leader is aging his bodily parts need replacement. Who other than the great Chev Chelios who managed to survive the deadly Chinese poison. The Triad kidnaps Chev while he is busy falling off a helicopter from the sky. They first transplant his heart with an artificial one which runs on a battery pack which fuels the internal battery which in turn pumps the heart. Next, they want to amputate his penis but Chev escapes and is on the hunt for Johnny Vang (Hsu) who carries his heart in a box. His external battery pack has limited life and in order to recharge his internal batter, he keeps needing shots of electricity. Chev manages to come across a lot of old friends from the previous movie, including Kaylo's twin brother Venus (Ramirez) and his girlfriend-who-thought-he-was-dead-and-now-works-at-a-strip club Eve (Smart) and some enemies. The movie recalls a lot of characters from the previous movie but the story has little association with it. The style of action and comedy is in terms with the earlier version but the story keeps deviating at times to show insignificant clips which try hard to make you laugh. A very typical Jason Statham movie and a good watch if you don't mind some gory action.

Thumbs up: Jason Statham and action sequences
Thumbs down: Similar to Crank in almost all aspects

Rating: 7.5/10
