(at around 1h 15 mins) When Ted is performing Gwen's autopsy, the entire time the body block (under her neck) is left in place which would have made the autopsy difficult. Usually the pathologist will place it under the back, causing the arms and neck to fall backwards to stretch and push the chest forward to make it easier to cut open. See more »

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.
