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.

The artificial heart shown in the movie is actually a real artificial heart, the AbioCor from Abiomed. However the real artificial heart is totally internal and does not include a battery box as shown in the movie. The latest AbioCors can run on battery without recharging (done via external RF chargers) for over 4 hours. See more »
On Catalina Island: during the shooting there is a low angle shot under a beach chair. You can see the cabling for the squibs which where used a few seconds earlier for the Bulet impacts in the same chair. Also the you are able to see from the form of the impacts that webbing was destroyed from the button up rather then from the top as if a bullet had hit it. See more »
In a story so bizarre I can scarcely believe the event I'm reporting, and yet corroborated by at least a dozen eye witnesses. A white male apparently fell from the sky above downtown Los Angeles today, landed in the middle of a busy intersection, destroying one vehicle and hospitalising its elderly driver,and then was removed from the scene even before emergency personnel could respond. Without a body the police have yet to piece together the events of the day.It can only be ...

During the production credits, there was a sequence with Doc Miles giving Chev his heart operation with Dark Chocolate assisting him and Eve looking on while surgery is being done. When the heart was put in, Doc Miles tried to revive Chev with a defibrillator only for him to flat-line. Doc Miles takes Eve away and right when the production credits end, the camera closes in on Chev's burned and bandaged body and his eyes pop open, showing that he is still alive. See more »
If you've watched the first Crank and enjoyed it, you will absolutely love this one. It pushes the boundaries the first one set to the absolute maximum. There are no lines this film does not cross, from outrageous public sex scenes to gore that almost rivals the Saw franchise. It will keep your heart pounding for the entire film's duration. It's one of the most hilarious, stylish and down-right insane films I have ever watched.
If you haven't watched the first Crank, I recommend watching it before you even think of watching this film. It'll give you some good background story and also prepare you for what you are about to see.
If you saw the first Crank and didn't like it... do not watch this movie. Multiply Crank by 1000 volts and you get this incredible sequel.
The Crank franchise is an acquired taste, and this stretches it even for fans.
