Crank 

2006

This tongue-in-cheek actioner didn't do so well in theaters. I think its mix-master editing put a lot of people off "? "Domino" didn't do well, either, and it has the same feel of everything happening at once.
 
Jason Statham, the best pure action hero going right now, is Chev Chelios, a hit man who has been poisoned and will die within hours. All he has to do is track down the hood who slipped him the mickey and take him along when he goes.
 
There is no moral to this story and no one to like much except Chev, because you like Statham, and his gal (Amy Smart), but Chev has to keep his blood a-poundin' to hold death at bay, and his best methods of doing that are through sex and violence. Do you see a satirical comment on the audience for this kind of mindless banging?
 
Look for the usual making-of and a commentary track. If you haven't discovered Statham yet, start here. Recommended.
