    Dear User,

    You might be sitting in your chair, standing near a colleague who is reading this thread, or fighting off a zombie invasion. Simultaneously, you might be thinking something akin to "I should go see Crank 2." If you are thinking that (especially even while fighting off a zombie invasion), stop. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Yours truly loved the first Crank, and watched it multiple times. However, he/she/it seriously considered walking out of this pathetic excuse for a movie several times.

    Yes it had moments of brilliance, yes it was over-the-top blood, guts, gore and nudity. Yes, the main actor might just be the best man to call when you need somebody in a full business suit to unapologetically dispatch several generic bad guys. Unfortunately, this movie was so obsessed with being politically incorrect and gross that it ruins any enjoyment you might have derived from it. The first movie was horrible in an indescribably awesome way, this one is just horrible.

    So please, think of your wallets and avoid this awful waste of an hour and a half (also, try shotguns, I hear hey work well in tight corners).

    Yours splendiferously,
    Danls92

    Yes Thank You! Jason Stathham needs to GTFO. Im gtried of him and his movies, he's a cheap ator that will probably appear in like 10 movies a year.all of his movies are stupid and they all contain nudity and occasionally a sex scene, why? because how else are they going to attract attention to the movie, its that bad.
    His movies are garbage, and they have no specific plot or story line behind them. For example, in Crank 2: what really goes on? he wakes up in a hospital and needs electricity so he can live? so then he goes around rubbin old omen to gain electricity?

    I'd turn gay for Jason Statham. I'm sure I'm not the only one here.

    I also loved the first crank, but the trailer itself was enough to discourage me from watching the "high voltage" version.

    rubbing against people to jump start a robotic heart WTF?

    Let me just clarify that I'm a big fan of his work in general (Bank Job; Snatch; Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels- all great movies). I just don't like this one... at all.

    This!

    The first one was so amazingly sh*t, it was good! In a weird way. I just want to see this once out of curiosity! I might just.. get it another way.

    I thought Crank 2 wasn't that bad.

    Lot of nudity and fighting though.

    Which isn't bad cept for my younger brother and sister.

    Ummm... Not everyone likes a movie for Story. It's an action movie. What do you expect? The movie delivered on what it was made to deliver, hard pumping action. Maybe some people just want:

    Trust me, I wasn't going in wanting a story, I was expecting stupid balls-to-the-wall action. Yes, Crank 2 has that but the way it does it is just horrendous. The action sequences were phenomenal, but it was like at some point they couldn't remember if they were making an action movie, a gross-out, or a porno. (I know you watch Rev3 to some extent, so check out the TRS review of it, very similar to my views).
