Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a promising concept, but instead of expending effort on, say, a coherent script, the filmmakers lazily rely on cheap editing tricks and gleefully relentless sadism."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"For those who enjoy this brand of wholly mindless entertainment, Crank delivers."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"It's trashy, gory, gratuitous, ridiculous, completely far-fetched, and I had a smile on my face the entire time."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Ranks among the most mindless action films ever made, but scores as a helluva video game."
‑ Bruce Feld, Film Journal International
"Assaults the senses tirelessly with wave after wave of momentum-building intensity, with Jason Statham enjoying his best role since The Transporter."
‑ Kam Williams,
"Leave it alone, or leave your brain and pocket change at the gate, strap yourself in and just enjoy the ride."
‑ Neva Chonin, San Francisco Chronicle
"Jason Stratham rampages through Los Angeles in this retread of Speed, but for a movie premised on unrelenting action, Crank proves fatally turgid."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"Gets by on a unique kind of absurd, deadpan humor in which the most implausible stuff cheerfully happens anyway."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"The super-concentrated silt at the bottom of a chemistry experiment that has no possible purpose to it but to deliver whatever limited jolt of which it's capable."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"You might just want to catch a matinee or wait for the DVD. This is definitely not worth your 10 bucks."
‑ Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel, 3BlackChicks Review
"Viewers baffled by stuff happening for no particular reason should probably stay well away."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"The movie is cranked up somewhere between stylish and proudly stupid."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Sure, Crank is totally ridiculous, unbelievable, exhausting, and pretty much just plain stupid, but that's what makes it fun."
‑ Brian Tallerico, UGO
"Its freneticism ... futilely tries to cover up the ludicrousness of every decision made by its dim characters."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Adrenalina de uma idiotice contagiante."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
