Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #84: Crank: High Voltage (2009)

March 30, 2011

Janne the Director with a Space Mahoney t-shirt from the movie No Law 4000jason statham starring in crank 2 high voltage-poster84. Crank 2 – High Voltage (UNCUT) 2 Disc Special Edition (2009)

I really hated the first movie. It was just too sexist and juvenile for my taste.. and my taste is really sexist and juvenile!

And this sequel is… EVEN WORSE! But the thing is that when you OD on sexism and juvenilism (it’s a word because I say so!) it kind of… works. It’s like how fat jokes aren’t funny when skinny people (or Carlos Mencia) say them but when a fat person does..?  It works.

Crank: High Voltage KNOWS it’s a fat guy (there is no chance this movie could be labeled a fat girl) so it gets away with it.
