Goofs

When Ted tells Jake the means of the first murder in 'the game' he says that Jake did it with "you mixed ethanol and nitric acid with the alcohol [sic]; probably a flavored alcohol to mask the bitter taste..." This is incorrect. Acids are well-known to be sour in nature (eg, lemons are sour due to citric acid); bases are bitter.

Even worse, the mixing of ethanol and nitric acid results in a reaction that gives off nitrogen dioxide, a toxic gas, and the reaction is so highly exothermic that it can result in an explosion. You can see what really happens by doing a quick search for the two ingredients on YouTube. See more »

Great, sick fun!
17 April 2008 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Me and my friends watched the movie last night and I must say, we had a lot of fun.I'm not a big fan of "Crank" so I was a bit hesitant at first. It's not "Schndler's List" and it never tries to be. It's very dark and nihilistic but it never goes over the top.

It's fun, sick and twisted entertainment and if you're more into those kind of movies then you'll enjoy it a lot. If your favorite movie is "Atonemnet", I recommend to skip it.

I thought the performances - especially by Michael Weston - were great, it looked stylish and had an overall creepy atmosphere. Good special effects and the ending was really good too.

Overall: Really great movie.
