Crank update feed

Not overhyped!

“Personally, I don't think that Crank was overhyped. In fact, if I remember, it was released in cinemas with very little fanfare at about the same time as Snakes on a Plane, a film with much more pomp and expectation.

This film is essentially a piece of good, clean fun. It is not the 'Transporter 3' as some people have suggested, but rather a far more entertaining and humourous movie. In my opinion, this outshone the truly overhyped Snakes on a Plane and I thought Jason Statham was marvellous.

The stunts are far less ridiculous and laughable than any of the Transporter films (which take attrocious stunts to the next level) and when I left the cinema, I did so with a smile on my face.” read more

overhyped

“I've heard 'Children of Men' be described as a 'thinking man's action movie'. Well in that same train of thought, I think 'Crank' itself could best be described as an 'A.D.D.-afflicted man's action movie', or perhaps another way, a 'slow-witted, easily-entertained man's action movie'.

Does it have action? sure it does! is it loud, in-your-face, racist, sexist, piece of hollywood escapism? yup! does it require you to turn off your brain? most definately. but for some of today's kids, who seem to have an attention span of 5 minutes max, and think 'Jackass Number 2' is a cinematic masterpiece, they'll sure find 'Crank' a blast to watch.” read more
