Movie Review – Crank: High Voltage (2009)
by HELEN GEIB
Some movies are not worth the time it takes to write a full-length review. Crank: High Voltage is one of them. The sequel to Crank brings back co-writers and directors Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine behind the camera and Jason Statham, Amy Smart, Dwight Yoakam, and Efren Ramirez in front of it for a movie that is more of the same, only without the cleverness, energy, and whimsicality that made the earlier film so much fun. High Voltage is more remake than sequel, moving anti-hero Chev Chelios through the same scenes writ cruder and meaner and with a newly-present edge of creative desperation.
