Crank: High Voltage

This sequel to the hit 2006 Jason Statham vehicle cranks up the ridiculous to deliver an indescribably action-packed freak-out. In the last outing, Statham got poisoned and had to keep his heart rate pumped up (via running, fighting, having sex) to survive. Now he's got to hunt down the bad guys who have stolen his indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-operated ticker that requires frequent jolts of electricity to keep working. Any film starring Bai Ling, David Carradine, Corey Haim and Dwight Yoakam clearly isn't taking itself very seriously. 96 minutes R.
