“I'm alive! I'm alive!”

Crank is a 2006 American action film written and directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor which centres on a British hitman based in Los Angeles named Chev Chelios who is poisoned and must keep his adrenaline flowing constantly in order to keep himself alive. He does so by various methods including taking drugs and getting into fights, while he tries to track down the man who poisoned him. 

An insane and violent drug trip of a movie, Crank is darkly comedic and edgy, and holds up well because of Jason Statham’s committed performance. 

Whilst it was sometimes exhausting to watch and some of the comedy didn’t work for me, it’s still very quick paced and the action sequences and soundtrack were really fun. 

Overall, it’s a pretty fun movie and I recommend.
