Kids will always take things too far

Under the self-imposed rules of this blog, I have to write about every feature film I see. I saw Crank 2: High Voltage.

You gotta have some regard for a film that points out that its own premise is implausible in the very first sequence. (Actually, I would have used the word "ridiculous.") But where the first film had cheeky humor and what was then new-style digital imagery and editing, this film, in a misguided attempt ramps up the cruelty and the "yecch" factor with a number of body mutilations that completely vitiate any attempts at humor.

Presumably, if you look up "pointless sequel" in Wikipedia you will see the picture posted above. I hope they're done with Crank movies now.
