Trivia

When the Google Earth satellite views zoom-in they show the real locations where the scenes were actually shot. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the car chase, the yellow Volkswagen convertible (which somehow can outrun two larger far more powerful cars) is shot at close range, multiple times, by thugs with automatic weapons. While the glass is shattered, and reappears several times, the body itself never shows any signs of having been hit by a bullet. See more »

Quotes

Chev Chelios: [after chopping off the arm of a bad guy and telling him] How'd you like that one, tough guy? How fricking awesome was that, huh?

Crazy Credits

At the very end of the credits, we see "Crank" as if it was a retro video game. Chev shoots two henchmen, then he takes a needle containing drugs and goes into RAMPAGE mode and runs fast. He runs into another henchman who injects him with "The Bejing Cocktail", the camera zooms in on Chev's heart which explodes and blood splatters on the screen. And the words "Game Over" appears on the screen. See more »

Funny and action packed
2 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie had it all. Action, humor, and a little bit of sexiness. I thought that they could have gone a different way for the ending, but it was still a unique idea.

One of the main reasons for my approval, was the fact that this movie was different. It's not something that you see all the time in traditional "I have to claim revenge for what the bad guys did to me" type of film. I really liked the action sequences, I thought that this movie was choreographed really well. I didn't find any glaring weaknesses in the film, but the overall storyline was a little lacking.

Jason Statham is an amazing actor (not just in this film specifically). He can do much more that play the action hero like in the Transporter movies, and this one as well. I really liked his performance in SNATCH. I thought that his character in SNATCH was really made for him, and that nobody else could have pulled it off. I'd like to see him in movies like that more often.

One more thing that I'd like to add, is that the new "Hitman Codname:47" movie that's coming out would have been a really good role for Statham instead of Vin Diesel. Just a thought
