Episode Description: Sequel month continues here at Summer Blockbuster!?! as we tackle 2009’s absolutely deranged action-comedy Crank 2: High Voltage, directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Jason Statham is back, and as the tagline helpfully explains, “He was dead…but he got better.” This time, some bad guys have stolen his strawberry tart – that’s heart, for the uninitiated – and his artificial one is low on power, meaning he has to keep electrocuting himself to stay alive. And then Bai Ling shows up and scares everyone. Look, we admit that this film is about as politically incorrect as they come, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t an absolute blast.
