Film Friday: Crank
This is undoubtedly one of the silliest action movies ever, but was it any good?
This is the kind of movie that only gives up any plot when you hold it down and demand it stop for just one second and explain why the hell the action is happening. It is just absurd action scene after action scene, with a plot about Chev Chelios being poisoned and having to keep his adrenaline going or some nonsense. This is also one of the most fun movies I have seen, with "fun" meaning I had a really good time.
Whether it is a helicopter fight high in the sky, Statham's character driving through a shopping mall, having sex with his girlfriend in public, or burning his hand with a waffle iron, everything is fast-paced and executed with style. There are shootouts, fights, and a bunch of humor. It's just crazy.
4 out of 5 stars.
