Crazy Credits

At the very end of the credits, we see "Crank" as if it was a retro video game. Chev shoots two henchmen, then he takes a needle containing drugs and goes into RAMPAGE mode and runs fast. He runs into another henchman who injects him with "The Bejing Cocktail", the camera zooms in on Chev's heart which explodes and blood splatters on the screen. And the words "Game Over" appears on the screen. See more »

Helluva ride!
18 January 2007 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Crank's basic idea isn't really new. You have seen similar movies in the past (the chance is big that you have). Some might say that it's not a good movie. But it is definitely a guilty pleasure!

The whole movie feels like you fast forward it. You don't have time to really think about. Besides the end that is, but more about that later. It's an good old fashioned action movie, that will excite (in more than one way). ;o) What I really like, is that the movie sets a tone and keeps it till the end.

Jason Statham was an action star before Crank, but now everyone will notice him. Or at least they should. Amy Smart comes late in(to) the movie and she's more a sidekick, but it's OK, because it's a guy movie.

And that brings me to two things that will/could leave a sour taste ... One is scene with Amy Smart and Jason Statham. I won't tell you about the scene, but I can assure you that most women won't like that scene ... They don't like it at all! The second is the ending. It falls short and it's a shame because the movie really would've deserved a better ending. At least that's what I'm thinking and I haven't anyone you disagree with that yet. ;o)

If you can manage to keep your mind from thinking to much and are down for some "manly" action movie then go for it! It'll be worth your while!
