Crank it Up

May 19th, 2009 by Frank in 6th Floor, life, review

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Crank it up

That movie was insanity!”

Good insanity though. I actually didn’t realize it was a sequel when we first went in.”

From Pictures


Well, it wasn’t that important to have seen the first. I actually liked this one better.”

There’s a blockbuster between here and the apartment, what say we rent it?”

Sure, although I know how it ends.”

Well, you could know the entire sequence of the movie and it’s still entertaining to watch.”

That’s why I said sure! I like the video game feeling to it.”

There are a lot of similarities between the two plots. They take the same sort of story arc.”

Why mess with a good thing?”

I hope they make another sequel.”

It was a fun movie, but I’m not sure it has the drawing power for a third.”

You could probably make the same case for a second movie. I hadn’t even heard of it.”

There weren’t a lot of people there. Then again, it couldn’t have cost that much to make either.”

I dunno, Amy Smart and Jason Statham aren’t nobodies, they probably have to get paid.”

I just googled it on my phone. It looks like they plan a third. And in 3-D!”

Awesome!”

I’d be psyched for that.”

    i loved the first Crank (but I’m also a Jason Statham fan and I think Amy Smart is well cute), and really want to see the second (though it hasn’t been released yet).

    And lest you doubt the drawing power of mindless trilogies at the box office, consider that though the original Transporter (also starring Jason Statham) was by far the best and much like Crank, something that ought to have been a one-of type of movie, they ended up making not only a Transporter 2 (which was kind of ridiculous and filled with CGI) but also a Transporter 3 (which was utterly, completely cheesy and ridiculous and looked like half of it was filmed in front of a bluescreen). (at least Transporter 3 had a punky Eurotrashy girl with freckles and crazy coloured hair – they know what I like haha)).

    And you know what? I paid to see all of them, even though I *knew* the sequels would suck. I guess the average motion picture viewing audience member such as myself is kind of simple that way lol 🙂
