Crank: High Voltage

Okay, what can I say about Crank: High Voltage?

1. It's the sequel to Crank, circa 2006.
I've never seen the first film. Or I might've, but I've totally forgotten about it. That happens sometimes. Especially when the film was boring.

2. It's a low budget flick.
Low budget. B-movie. Not even Amy Smart's acting, Geri Halliwell's cameo, or Jason Statham's abs can move this up to the A-list. But Clifton Collins, Jr. was okay.

3. Great editing.
Fast-paced, vomit-in-your-seat editing. Perfect match for the cranked-up storytelling.

4. Outrageous cameos.
There's the legendary David Carradine, Chester Bennington from Linkin Park, mixed martial artist Keith "The Dean of Mean" Jardine, and porn superstars Ron Jeremy and Ed Powers. Still not enough to make this an A-lister.

The verdict: Not for the faint of heart, as violence and gore are all over this picture.

i chose to watch fast and furious over this last time i went to the cinemas. was that a good call? hehehe. have no idea of the movie kasi.

ako rin e, i've never seen the first film, but a lot of people say the first Crank was good. the second film, this one, was good also, in its own way. but the style might turn off some viewers, as it is too...fast-paced. you know, hand-held cameras, shaky movements, and really fast editing. that kind of thing. :-D
