In total agreement with most of the other bad reviews. Hard to imagine Jason accepting the script for this dreadful movie. Bad acting from the bimbo and the rest of the supporting cast. LEMON!!!!!
This movie is insane, it should come with one of those medical warnings - may cause nausea, dizziness or heart palpitations. It's starts on 5th gear from start to finish. Definitely a high energy movie.
We like nearly every one of his movies but this was a big let down, in saying that thow we watched it till the end had a few laugh's but would not recomend it sorry = (
A crook finds himself in a life / death situation when he is injected with a serum that will ultimately lead to his death. Crazy action drama with ubiquitous Statham that is easily out done in absurdity by its bizarre sequel Krank; High Voltage.
Rubbish. Way too much swearing and wooden tops acting.
Absolutely terrible. If you have a mental age over 15 you will hate this movie. I can't believe all the positive reviews. I had to turn it off after 15 min when I realised it was not going to get better!
Action adventure for the alpha male - or female. Drugs, nasty gruesome murders, etc.
What on earth did i chose this movie for. Extreem violence and deplorable language....definately not my cup of tea. Dont waste your time.
Terrible, shallow story, and totally unbelievable.
This movie is what the word 'Action' means and it carries on through the whole movie flat out ......about time too
P.S Crank 2 is also awsome
A unique gem of a film, the cinematography and pacing of which is fantastic.
It would be incorrect to call this an action movie, however, and if you're looking for badass Jason Statham violence, you won't be disappointed exactly, but you will be quite confused.
This is really more of a comedy, and rolls along at such a ridiculous pace that it can get away with anything.
I found it very enjoyable, but I think it takes a certain adolescent mindset to enjoy it fully. It's cathartic, silly and ridiculously violent. Good for a night in with friends, or as a family-movie for grown-ups.
Not as good as the sequel, but still alright.
Stratham is certainly not at his best in this one.......although he didn't have a lot to work with. Slim story, dodgy scripting...at best a very average film
There is little story to this movie, just a lot of action. However, it is proper action (none of that CGI heavy, slow motion strung up and doing flips "action")
The methods used to increase the main characters adrenaline (rocking out in the Taxi for example) bumps the movie from a below average 2 star movie up to a decent 3 stars for me.
I adore Jason Statham but found this movie absolutely woeful. Maybe should have read reviews before I chose it - it's full of swearing, drug use, shooting violence (not my kinda thing) and whilst the premise is quite interesting, it could have been handled a lot better. If you like movies of this type, no worries.
Almost unwatchable trash. Almost saved by the stylish action but completely ruined by bad acting, poor dialogue and terrible script.
Truly one of the worst movies I have had the misfortune to sit through. Terrible direction, aweful editing and rubbish story.
I never write reviews but this was so bad I felt it my public duty to let people know before you make the mistake of "trying this out"
If you are under the age of 24 perhaps you may like the MTV style of filming but seriously...there are better things to do with your time !
Simple but thrilling storyline. A shocking start launches the action on a massive roller coaster that is all downhill and reaches break neck speeds.
How can you not love this movie??!!! The plot would be to far fetched even for GTA, but who really cares?
Not me and not anybody who want's a Saturday night film to replace thier worn out copy of Die Hard!
Just see this if you want a bit of a laugh, otherwise i wouldn't bother.
Unmitigated twaddle! The star's for Jas - he was trying his best!
Yeah it's tries to be different. The way it is lit is amazing and by shooting on Digital they can really get odd camera angles that defy gravity. However it's just a dumb story with a dumb character who needs to be on a psychiatrist couch. Like the movie Wanted this is just an adrenalin ride to nowhere. Director's Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine are like 10 year old kids jumping up & down going more, more. Halfway through you just end up going, 'no, no more'.
Boring... Useless... Pointless...
No storyline. Absolute waste of time.....
If i could give.. will give -ve rating.
Ha ha! If you want to put your brain in neutral but your adrenaline in high gear, grab this one. Fun, fast and in your face. Jason Statham plays Jason Statham (again) but does it better than most. Not for the squeemish or those easily offended by language (hence the MA warnings people!).
What an absolute disappointment. Fast-forwarded most of this movie in the hope that it might get interesting. It didn't!
The only movie that i think could be possibly be more horrible then Christmas vaction 2. this is the lemon datsun in the corner of the car yard.
Great movie for a Friday night. Best served with a couple of beers.
Absolute seat-gripping movie, action, suspense with romance added.
Boring story line with boring action sequences to match. We expected more of Jason Statham!
Had its moments but tried too hard to be cool by using excessive swearing & drug use. Not a patch on the 'Transporter' movies.
Worth Watching - nothing special, but quite entertaining.
Too many F words & pretty vivid violence.
Not bad...good action flick, bit of comedy thrown in - but when he rapes the girl in front of interested spectators just lost the whole movie for me.
Lots of action with some funny one liners thrown in every now and then.
way too violent for me - stopped it part way didn't watch it all the way through.
this movie was a bit strange my kids convinced me to get it they said it was great there was some funny parts in it especially the chinatown scene but unless you are into this sort of movie I wouldn't bother I think you have to be in your 20's to enjoy it
great movie lots of action non stop
The script is basically a good idea, but really doesn't go anywhere once we know the details. The entire film features nothing more than shoot 'em up, gangster types, punctuated by high octane car chases, and then more car chases. It only saving grace is the MTV style production. Interesting editing techniques, but this unfortunately doesn't save the film. Overall, an OK film that is not a total waste of time if your in the mood.
great movie top marks from me
As an action packed movie, it couldn't be better. As a storyline it was only fair particularly in the plot and delivery department. A couple of very amusing sequences as to how he (Jason Statham) regenerates his adrenalin rush. Definately not for the younger age group children. You will enjoy it, but overall it's not a great movie.
Non stop from the get go....
Weird. Just didnt get the storyline. But Latham makes it believeable somehow
Fast paced, adreniline pumping action. Story line is a bit lame, but good action.
OK movie but relies too heavily on shock value and is totally unrealistic to the point of stupidity.
Last Statham movie I`ll ever watch.
I liked the transporter, but didn;t think this was as good.
This is an outright action packed, hilarious movie. If you remotely liked Statham in The Transporter you will love him in this. Ignore the low ratings people gave this movie if you like action and comedy, it is a top flick in that category from start to finish.
This move could have been so much more if done right. The concept of the story was great, the execution was not so great. I usually like Statham movies but his one just failed to impress. It was mildly entertaining and funny in some places but for most of it a bit of a disappointment.
Breaks new ground in movie genre. Your knuckles will be white all the way thru this non stop adrenalin rush movie. Good story line. Excellent characterisation. Not to be missed.
An excellent twisted story, one of the best i've seen in a long time
Jason Statham is brilliant! Non stop action from start to finish.
shocking from start to finish
lots of shooting and action not much story line but fast and exciting great movie
Yeah, movies are often formulaic and this is no exception, but I think the formula works in this case. Definitely not a movie for cynics but there's a good blend of over-the-top action and humour to make it enjoyable.
The story line wasn't good. Basically no story line. a few comedy moments and several action involved.
Maybe I am just getting old, but heavy metal 'music' throughout the whole film was very irritating! There was very little story line and the acting was worse than B Grade. I would have expected much better from Jason Statham (I enjoyed Transporter), but this will be one that I am sure he would rather forget. A total waste of time!
