Crank 2: High Voltage

Somewhere along the movie, Jason Statham's Chev Chelios attaches one claw of a jumper cable to his right nipple, and another to his tongue. With the other end of the cables juiced by a car's running engine, Chelios jump-starts his supplementary heart so he may continue his manic run of mayhem across the city. As with most genre films, you need to have an appetite for this kind of over-the-top action and politically-incorrect chauvinism that the Crank movies are all about. Either this movie is for you, or it isn't. There is no middle-ground.
