Quick review: Crank High Voltage 

In this sequel to Crank, Jason Statham's character Chev Chelios survives a heart transplant, a dive through a windshield during a car wreck, electric shocks from car batteries, car cigarette lighters, tasers, dog collars, telephone poles. He plunges thousands of feet from a helicopter and bounces off a car and hits the ground (this happened at the end of the first film and is where our "story" begins), gets shot in the leg but is completely unaffected, has sex with a girlfriend during a horserace ... on the track ... but I think you've heard enough. I wasn't sure what to think at first. Was its stylized approach an attempt at art? Was the absurdity of the plot meant to be humor? Then my answer came with the last shot. It was simply Statham on fire, flipping off the camera; that's the message the directors were trying to send.
