Storyline

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.

Goofs

When Eve and Chelios both fall onto the horse race track, in the previous scene where they stumble, you can see bleachers below where they fall, so they would have fallen on another level of bleachers instead of on the track. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Fish Halman: 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 ...

absolute INSANITY!
22 November 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Crank 2 screams insanity from the word go. It yells "bullshit" left, right and centre. The things that happen in this film are extremely far-fetched and anybody chasing a 'realistic' movie will be disappointed.

But then again, who am I to be telling you this. Anybody walking into this movie should already be aware of the pure crap thrown into it from every possible angle.

This review comes from a fan of intense dialogue and drama. However, walking into this movie I expected entertainment. I put the Crank 2 DVD into my DVD player, switched off my brain and hoped for the best. And, that's exactly what I got!

It is just INSANE. I cannot think of another word to describe it.

Anybody who is going to be yelling out during the movie, "that's bullshit" or "that's impossible", will not enjoy this movie. In order for this movie to be enjoyed, your brain needs to be switched off!

So, do yourself a favour: switch off your brain and watch this movie. I guarantee you that you will be entrained to the MAX!
