Synopsis


Crank
A one-time freelance hitman who was just attempting to turn his life around is forced to keep his heart pumping when his vengeful former employers inject him with a lethal poison that will permanently stop his ticker if his pulse sinks beneath an active rate in a non-stop urban action extravaganza starring Jason Statham and Amy Smart. Chev Chelios (Statham) was one of the most skilled assassins in the West Coast crime syndicate. When he hung up his guns in the middle of a job to run off with his new girlfriend Eve (Smart), however, the man who was once the hunter now becomes the hunted. Awakened from his slumber by a telephone call informing him of his precarious situation, Chelios soon discovers that the only way to save Eve from certain death at the hands of his nemesis is to stay two steps ahead of his killers, keep his heart-rate high enough to stay alive, and blast through the streets of Los Angeles in search of an antidote. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Action from Beginning to End

    I loved this movie. It was a bit different from your typical action flick but different is good too sometimes. The movie is centered around Jason Statham trying to find an antedote for a poison he was given at the same time take revenge against the person who gives him the poison. The poison works by adrenelin. The less adrenelin you have the more the poison works the faster he dies so he has to keep moving to keep his adrenelin up the whole movie in order to stay alive. I'm a audiophile so I love watching movies with great surround sound so that I can listen to all my speakers work. Can't really get that with dramas, too much talking. The surround sound format is Dolby Digital and it sounds great. The Blu-ray video is als great. The video combined with audio and action makes this a great movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

    Guilty Pleasure

    Well the main story of this film is simple. The main character gets infected with a poison that is going to kill him. The only way he can extend his life for a few hours is by keeping his adrenaline up, to help counter the poisons effects. And thru out the movie the main character is just doing whatever he can to keep his adrenaline up, from doing things like speeding, picking fights with thugs, doing drugs, doing stunts on a motorcycle, and all at the same time that he is hunting down the gangsters who poinsoned him. The bad part of this movie is the supporting cast, i guess theyre just not very good at acting. And i will say that this movie is not a good movie, but its a guitly pleasure that im sure most guys will like it. But if they dont i understand why. Also there is one scene that does not make this suitable for children or teenagers, youlll see.

    Fast-Paced, Non-Stop ACTION

    Crank is one of those movies you wish wouldn't end. Few movies manage to acheive the non-stop adrenaline rush this movie pulls off (and seemingly with ease!). From the instant Chev wakes up, he's on the run. In fact, EVERY step he takes in the movie is a running one! As our anti-hero takes off, you will be amused by the creative ways he finds to keep himself going. Everything from bar fights to hospital hold-ups, even frying his own hand to stay alive can be seen here! If I have but one complaint, its that the movie is only an hour and a half long. Then again, I'd rather have an INTENSE hour and a half such as this one, than suffer through boring, pointless scenes that do nothing but drag the pace down! Hopes for a sequel? You'll just have to watch...!

    HUUUGE Disappointment

    Posted

    Either Jason Statham is the worst actor ever or he just ends up in the worst movies ever, this movie was hyped up to be such a great movie and the movie was pathetic. I wish i never bought it. The cinamatography was poor, the dialogue would put anyone to sleep, the action scenes were decent but wasnt long enough to make the movie any better. I usually appreciate a decent love making scene but the one in the movie made me throw up in my mouth at how poorly it was directed. Please save your money and rent it first. You might like it bc everyones taste is different but this was a major miss for me.

    Blu-ray Quality

    This is a review on the blu-ray quality for Crank and not a review on the film itself. Visually, with it's 1080p, 1.85:1 presentation, Crank is a gorgeous looking blu-ray. The driving force of this blu-ray is the superb 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround EX audio track that is included. The soundtrack throughout the film, is loud, real loud, but the dialogue is always clear and audible, without being drowned out. High marks across both Audio & Video Quality on this release.

    whats with putting jason statham in these low budget action movies. pointless storyline. just overall a bad movie. only reason i didnt give it one star was because sometimes you need a pointless movie and just kick back and not have to pay attention or keep track of characters. thats when Crank comes off my shelf. if you do decide to watch this dont try to understand it or put logic to it you just take it for what its worth a action movie that will keep you busy for an hour and a half.

    very interesting movie

    This movies pretense is that Jason Statham plays a hitman who's been drugged and must keep his heart "cranked" or he'll die. Throughout the movie he does outrageous things to stay alive while tracking down the one(s) who drugged him. It is a great movie but definitely recommended for 17 years or older as it definitely deserved its R rating. This is definitely a guys flick... not a good date movie.

    Not that great

    This movie is about an assassin that gets caught up in something bad and ends up being poisoned with something where he needs to keep his heart rate up in order to live. The problem is that the movie was so far fetched that it ended up being sort of lame. There were good parts and some moments that were funny but all in all this movie was a dud.
