The indestructible hopped-up hitman Chev Chelios, played to the hilt once again by Jason Statham, returns in Crank High Voltage, picking up where the first film left off -- except this time, Chelios is chasing a Chinese gangster who hijacked his heart and substituted it with a mechanical one that needs to be jolted with an electric charge to stay pumping. Back for the fun is Chev's girlfriend Eve ({Amy Smart}) and his physician Doc Miles (Dwight Yoakam), who, as luck has it, turns out to be an ex-heart surgeon. As Chelios delves deeper into the mystery surrounding his stolen heart, he… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Yet another D.O.A. for the ADD era."
‑ Rob Nelson, Variety
"Tasteless, trashy and totally over the top, Crank: High Voltage might also be one of the year's most inventive movies. Sometimes, nothing exceeds like excess."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"Plays it to all heights if idiocy where suspense of disbelief is no longer an instrument to the entertainment."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
" agreeable companion piece to its admittedly superior predecessor."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Basically the co-writers and co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor sneer at any kind of rules, decorum or morality. Anything goes, as long as it's within the realm of exploitation-level "B" moviemaking."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"In Crank: High Voltage, Statham just looks miserable, as if appearing in this lousy picture just sucked all the heart right out of him."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"The movie feels like a form of aversion therapy designed to take the fun out of dumb."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Feels like shock for shock's sake instead of something morbidly inventive like the first one."
‑ William Goss, Cinematical
"Waking up in the aftermath of a meth-lab explosion might be less disorienting than watching this. And if you think there's no room for more, Neveldine/Taylor are probably a weekend and a bag of crack-filled Pixie Stix away from proving you wrong."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Both exhilarating and exhausting, it falls just short of a fever pitch."
‑ Rob Humanick,
"Crank: High Voltage, starring Jason Statham as a man with a machine instead of a heart, is boorish, bigoted and borderline pornographic."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"It's so amped up that High Voltage suffers its own energy shortage well before the finale. It's also every bit as stupid as it sounds."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Copping to how unrealistic your movie is by excusing it (no, no, it's a video game!), rather than running with it, is a mistake that Taylor and Neveldine never recover from."
‑ Adam Lippe,
"See this f%$&*ing movie, mate."
‑ Kyle Smith,
"Click for full review"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
