Consensus: Crank: High Voltage delivers on its promises: a fast-paced, exciting thrill ride that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Rob Nelson

Yet another D.O.A. for the ADD era.

Jason Anderson
Toronto Star

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.

Cinema Crazed

Plays it to all heights if idiocy where suspense of disbelief is no longer an instrument to the entertainment.

In Crank: High Voltage, Statham just looks miserable, as if appearing in this lousy picture just sucked all the heart right out of him.

Liam Lacey
Globe and Mail

The movie feels like a form of aversion therapy designed to take the fun out of dumb.

William Goss

Feels like shock for shock's sake instead of something morbidly inventive like the first one.

Crank: High Voltage, starring Jason Statham as a man with a machine instead of a heart, is boorish, bigoted and borderline pornographic.

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.

Adam Lippe

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.

High octane isn't the word with this flick, 'Grand Theft Auto' on speed with a firecracker up its arse more like haha. This is pure and utter… More

Wow. Get ready. Neveldine + Taylor didn't break their promise to us, and instead they delivered a concoction of glorious ADD-induced mayhem not seen since… More

Gleefully offensive, satirical, brutally violent, racist, and hectic. One of the most insane, irreverent, and politically incorrect films I've ever seen.

I was shocked to see that this is the same directors as the first one....cause it totaly sucks's the same thing...but there's no feeling… More
