follow-up

“ok, perhaps I was a bit harsh comparing it to 'Jackass number 2', as I did notice the film made fun of itself, making it perhaps more of a comedy then an action film. However, with that said, I guess the main thing that annoyed me and I couldnt get past is the entire plot from the start to the end. Remember all those James Bond flicks, where the bad guy devises a cunning slow painful way to kill Bond, and then walks away, assuming Bond will die? Austin Powers made a good mockery of that concept. I mean, in the end, why not just KILL the guy, or at least stick around and make sure he really suffers, but to put a poison in him that makes his body the equivalent of 'Bus can't go slower than 55mph' from 'Speed', and then leave a DVD for him to know how he will die, and then near the end, w” read more

“"My Name is Jason Statham and by the end of this film....you'll be disappointed."

I remember quoting this in his husky voice before I walked into the cinema. I just expected Transporter film but I was wrong mate!

It just rips into itself so much that its more of a comedy than anything else. The action is just an excuse to fit Statham into the mix but I was highly impressed with the entire set-up.

Statham has a new found respect from me now. Let's hope his career steers away from Revolver-type films from now on!” read more

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
