Review: Crank

Doing a long worldwide run (already opened a year ago in the States) is a hint it might be direct-to-video (or direct-to-dvd, nowadays) quality. With no real big stars attached, headlined only by Jason Statham (and Amy Smart, the main reason why I went to see it anyway), my instinct was correct.
It’s a banal story, mainly trying to create a certain rush and non-stop action sequences, but even then, it barely holds on to your attention. Directed with an MTV videoclip style, it tries a few psychedelic effects and segues, but that’s just not good enough.
That said, it’s good for a one time showing, and I actually laughed at a few jokes.6-.
