It should be pretty obvious at this point that I’m pretty excited about Crank 2: High Voltage. Sure, I know the franchise is ridiculous and over the top and more than a little insane, but it’s also like every action film ever boiled down to its essentials and then distilled into a strong liquor of pure mayhem. So I’m terribly pleased to see this new Crank 2 trailer online.

The film sees Jason Statham’s Chev Chelios lose the indestructible heart that sustained him through the first film to organ harvesters, who replace that organ with an electrical model to keep him alive while they harvest the rest. He naturally escapes and, with the aid of regular electric shocks, keeps himself alive while searching for the missing heart. Awesome.

There’s also a new poster for the film also online now – check it out above. Crank 2 is released on April 17, which can’t come soon enough – to hell with character devlopment and subtext, just this once.
