A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!


« on: September 09, 2009, 06:14:19 AM »

   I finally saw that this one had come out on video and could not wait to see it, so I rented it last night and put it into the VCR just before 10 PM after coming home from teaching a 3 hour night class.  It was worth the missed hour or so of sleep!
   Chev Chelios is back in a mind-blowing sequel with explosions, boobs, heavily tatooed Latinos, a 100 year old Chinese pervert, and enough reality flaws to make WyreWizard's head explode!  The lethal assassin and sometime boyfriend of the ever-cute and resourceful Amy Smart fell from a helicopter last movie (and BOUNCED when he hit the ground!), only to be scooped up by some Chinese organ thieves who steal his heart and put in an artificial replacement.  Now he is up and awake, trashing Chinatown, terrorizing hookers, rediscovering his girl, and putting on a show for some 8,000 people at the LA racetrack, all while trying to track down his missing heart.   This one is pure bad movie fun from start to finish.  There are very few redeeming features to get in the way of the testosterone-filled madness.  I'd tell ya more but I'm late for work.

Anyway, back to the topic, I saw the first Crank, and enjoyed it, but didn't feel the need to see the second one. I might give it a go some day.

I didn't like CRANK, so I'll probably avoid the sequel.

On a random note, depending on how they hit the ground and what the ground is made of, people do indeed bounce when falling long distances. 

I thought Crank was entertaining for what it is.  It's very akin to a big budget Troma film, though not as funny.  I also think the action scenes in it are pretty bad.  But so much craziness in a film is certainly entertaining at times.

It just barely manages a 7/10 from me.

Btw, I didn't like Crank & Crank II is pretty much the same movie. Jason Statham needs to drop the pacemakers and kicking ppl in the chest in slow-mo, an he could probably do alot better with his career.

I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

Jason Statham does a great job in "Snatch", but he seems to have been type cast by the "Transporter" and "Crank" films.
"Crank II" is basically a group of scenes of gratuitous violence and sex connected (just barely) by a minimal amount of dialogue and plot, that being said it was, for me at least, a lot of fun to watch, especially the Kaiju and firehose scenes.
While I won't watch this one again soon, it was a pretty good movie to watch once.
