        Great concept that never takes itself too seriously.

        An adrenaline-filled path of destruction. The Neveldine-Taylor combination presents pointless entertainment and hardcore mentality. With Jason Statham at the focal point of all the damage, the film is wildly out of control and is yet able to provide for a very different kind of action film. 4/5

        From the writer/director team Neveldine/Taylor comes the nonstop action film Crank. Jason Statham stars as Chev Chelios, an assassin who wakes up to discover that he's been poisoned and has an hour to live...unless he's able to keep up his adrenaline. The performance by Statham is really good and carries the film. But the directing of Neveldine/Taylor is rather poor, and the visual style is grimy and at times incoherent. Yet the intensity of the action is well-done and keeps the film moving at a fast pace. Crank is an entertaining mess that's a bit of fun, but there's nothing particular compelling about either the characters or the story.
