"Where is my strawberry tart...?" Alright, before I even start commenting on Crank 2, I would like to recommend few things:
1)Before you plan to go for this sequel do watch the first part, to prepare yourself 2)If you dint like first part dont ever go for this 3)If you liked the first part, this one will blow your brains off
Crank 2: High Voltage has got everything in extreme from action to brutality to offensiveness to discrimination to nudity, in short a typical grind house flick. Speaking of the concept, Crank itself took an insane turn and this sequel just surpasses that insanity and takes it to a new level.
The storyline goes like this; Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) wakes up in middle of his surgery and find that doctors are replacing his heart so that they can keep him alive. When he comes to know that they are going to replace his other parts as well, he walks out of the hospital before his surgery could get completed. Later on, he realizes that the artificial heart transplanted inside him is attached to some external battery. Now, the only hitch is if the battery gets discharged he only has an hour with him to charge it as after that his heart will stop.
To make it worse the battery pack gets destroyed and after that you see Chelios using and everything like car power, jumpers, electricity poles, power stations; to keep himself going. The objective of Chev Chelios is to get back his original heart from Johnny Vang (Art Hsu) so that Doc Miles (Dwight Yoakam) can put it inside Chelios.
Honestly, till the time Doc Miles is not introduces, you wont be able to understand that why the hell Chelios is doing all that crap. No doubt the plot is pretty complicated but it again works out in the favor of CRANK. You will get to see some new characters as well as some from the previous version. If you saw Crank, you must be knowing the way this movie is shown on screen; the weird accent, the images to make you understand whats going on, mad graphics, shaky camerawork, and over-the-top stunts. This edition has it all but 1000 times the first one. It seems that all knew exactly that what they were trying to show and frankly, they reached way beyond that.
Personally speaking, I am not a fan of CRANK so dint like the movie at all but to all the fans of CRANK its a must watch!
Final Verdict: Absolutely psychotic! So, if you go for this one dont take things happening in the movie too seriously.
