In London, a real-estate scam puts millions of pounds up for grabs, attracting some of the city's scrappiest tough guys and its more established underworld types, all of whom are looking to get rich quick. While the city's seasoned criminals vie for the cash, an unexpected player -- a drugged out rock 'n' roller presumed to be dead but very much alive -- has a multi-million dollar prize fall into...

An undercover cop infiltrates an underworld subculture of Los Angeles street racers looking to bust a hijacking ring, and soon begins to question his loyalties when his new street racing friends become the prime suspects.
Chev Chelios survives a fall from the sky, sort of. He's in an unknown location, sedated, while various Chinese are harvesting his organs. His heart is gone, in an ice chest; a temporary in its place. Chev escapes, knowing only the name of the guy with the ice chest. He calls Doc Miles, an unlicensed cardiologist, who tells him there's only an hour's life in the artificial heart: keep it charged. Chev needs to find his own heart and get to Doc for a transplant. He starts his time-limited pursuit of shadowy figures, the ice chest, and his heart aided by Eve, Rei, and Venus - a stripper, a prostitute, and a pal with Tourette's - constantly needing an electric charge to keep going.

In the scene where Chelios goes outside after escaping the hospital he is behind a crate when a man sneaks up behind him with a Springfield Armory XD pistol. These pistols have a cocking pin indicator, as well as a round indicator on the top of the slide. In this scene the round indicator is down, meaning there is no round in the chamber. Chelios does a brass check after disarming the man, and does not rack a round in the chamber. In the following scene he shots two men with this weapon without a round chambered. See more »
" If you died once, chances are you will find the second time easier "
From the moment you began to see this film, be prepared to take a long two hour roller coaster ride filled with excitement and pure adrenaline. The character Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) is back. How? We don't know, but the fact is, he is and far more lethal than ever. Discovering himself on the operating table and about to be castrated may have been the impetus to awaken him. Now his desperate mission is to search for the elusive Johnny Vang (Art Hsu) who has his missing heart. In this second addition to the first installment of 'Crank', this supplemental film is called " Crank, High Voltage." In addition to searching for his heart, Chelios is hindered by an old enemies list which seems to be without end. Even though the film throws everything at the audience, it further morphs into a Japanese rendition of Godzilla vs King Kong. Excitement and physical action proliferate the movie screen and includes the return of his friend Dwight Yoakam as Doc Miles and the late David Carradine as Poon Dong. This is a good film for Statham fans which leaves little to the imagination. ****
