He’s no Six Million Dollar Man, but despite a nose-dive from a helicopter at the end of Crank, Jason Statham is back as Chev Chelios in what I can only call the most unbelievable sequel, Crank 2: High Voltage.
Starting where the first film ended, Chev is scooped up from the pavement so a Chinese mobster can harvest his organs, beginning with his seemingly indestructible heart. Giving Chev a temporary electric heart so they can harvest the rest of his organs, Chev manages to escape before realizing that he only has one hour to live unless he can keep his heart electrified.
The result? Chev will tear apart the city, meet up with some old friends (including Amy Smart as Eve, and Dwight Yoakam as Doc Miles), and do anything to get his heart back where it belongs.
Directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, Crank 2 debuts in theatres on April 17, and if the teaser trailer is any indication, expect a brainlessly addictive, rock ’em sock ’em joy ride.
