Wendy's Films of 2010 #2: Crank 2 (2009)

That's right. After watching Crank, my friend Catherine and I looked at each other and determined that the second film must be devoured as soon as humanly possible. So Gaelan obliged and we stuck in Crank: High Voltage (2009).

With the most epic tagline: "He was dead... But he got better," we are launched into a second, even more absurd display of over-the-top action madness. Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) must seek out the man that stole his "fucking strawberry tart" - known to most of humanity (in various languages of course) as "the heart" - and in order to keep the battery inside his body pumping blood me must repeatedly electrocute himself with everything he can possibly find. Friction with other humans (excellent, time for sex on a horse racing track!), high voltage systems, tasers and any other form of electricity. Add to this even more crazy characters, even more bare boobs and an "let's make this as insane as possible" attitude, and you've got a film that might just be too much for the regular viewer. But then again, perhaps not. Check it out if you want to see what tantalizing adventures Chelios gets into and what happens to his fucking strawberry tart.

Wendy, you are all kinds of bad-ass. Even I haven't seen Crank 2 yet!
