Crank 2 gets cast

04.21.2008

Amy Smart (the girlfriend), Dwight Yoakam (the doctor) and Efren Ramirez (the cross-dresser) will be back for CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE, with Bai Ling joining as, that's right you guessed it, a hooker. The film is of course the continuation of 2006's CRANK, which was certainly enough fun to warrant a sequel. Bai Ling's character will apparently be obsessively pursuing Chev Chelios for romantic reasons and will team up with him to hunt down the Chinese mobster who has stolen his heart. Literally. When asked to comment writer/director team Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor said "Yeah, Maggie Q, Lucy Liu, Zhang Ziyi, Kelly Hu, and every other smokin' hot Asian chick turned us down, so, you know, whatever."

CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE will see Jason Statham return as Chelios, who this time faces the aforementioned Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working.
Extra Tidbit: Chester Bennington from Linkin Park has a small role in CRANK.

I went in to Crank with low expectations and just looking for a fun film. Instead, I HATED it!! I've never really been a Statham fan so I guess you could blame that. I think this sequel sounds way too similar to the original. They even brought back characters that died in the first one!!!

Yes this movie didn't even do those things well, in my opinion. Jason Statham, as awesome as he is, still hasn't had a four-star action film. Even Matt Damon has the Borne Ultimatum.

These movies are not about having redeeming, respectable film qualities.

They are about explosions, blood, and sex. Sign me up.

No

Please, no more of that crap. That was the worst movie of 2006. Total garbage, with no redeemable features... except that it has Amy Smart, who is hot.
