Crank: A Review

Chev is a professional hitman who has been fatally poisoned with a "Chinese cocktail". He has one hour to live before his heart stops. There is no cure or antidote. However, he quickly ascertains that by keeping his adrenaline pumping, he can stay alive. That is the extent of the plot, by and large.

The rest of the movie sounds cooler than it really is (and tries to be). There are small, ironic moments of humor from Jason Statham, who plays Chev, and the film is almost non-stop in action: Chev snorting coke, Chev knocking over a convenience store for Red Bull, Chev having sex with his girlfriend (Amy Smart) on the ground and against a mailbox in front of a crowd of hundreds in China Town, Chev evading the police and driving his car through a mall and up an escalator.

I know, I know...this all sounds great...but its sounds better than it really is. Crank lacked any real cleverness, despite its premise. It had the foundation to be a very entertaining movie, but it fails. At times, the movie tries to be funny, or sweet, or heart-pumping. The point is that Crank tries to do these things, but the script just doesn't let it. I would not call this movie bad...just a little disappointing.

I so agree with your review. My opinion is that it's some "guy" fantasy movie gone bad!
