Chev Chelios is about to begin his morning with an unexpected wake-up call. Groggy, practically unable to move and with a heart that’s barely beating, Chev answers his cell phone and hears the voice of thug Ricky Verona, who reveals Chev has been poisoned in his sleep and has only an hour to live. As it turns out, Chev is a hit man who freelances for a major West Coast crime syndicate. And a run of the mill job the night before that was supposed to be like any other hit went unexpectedly awry: Chev let his target go in an effort to quit the professional killing business and start a new life with his girlfriend Eve. Now, Chev must keep moving – literally – to stay alive. The only way to prolong the poison from stopping his heart is to keep his adrenaline flowing. As the clock ticks, Chelios cuts a swath through the streets of Los Angeles, wreaking havoc on those who dare stand in his way. He must rescue Eve from danger, stay two steps ahead of his nemeses as they try to eliminate him, and search for an antidote to save his own life.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Jason Stratham rampages through Los Angeles in this retread of Speed, but for a movie premised on unrelenting action, Crank proves fatally turgid.
Fresh: The movie is cranked up somewhere between stylish and proudly stupid.
Fresh: A jacked-up, unapologetically mindless bit of ADD-prescribed escapism that more or less delivers on a nifty premise.
Fresh: For those who enjoy this brand of wholly mindless entertainment, Crank delivers.
The reviewers that enjoyed this movie don't seem to know how to express their feelings on the movie.
This movie is understandably turning many off. It's frenetic, bizzare, hyperactive, and it gives the finger to realism several thousand times. It's a cult film. You're on only two sides of the field. You either loved it, or you hated it. It is what it is. A fast psycho violent film. I enjoyed it, but that's just me. Forget what the people say. You're probably gonna have to just, see it for yourself. The hour and half will either be very fun, or total hell. But you'll know if it'll be hell very early on if you don't like it. For me? Five stars.
When did this get on here!!!!!
This movie is one of my favorite action movies of all time!!!I love this movie. Jason is such a cool actor. I would given it a 5 star rating but the price is too high. Its been out for a while now. i think it should be like 9.99 like the other year old films.
Awsome movie. Buy this one for sure
