If it's anything like the first one (with the public sex scene) I'm sure it had it all. I don't think it would be the best movie ever though. I'm sure you're just being sarcastic.

I for one thought that Crank (the original) was fairly well-shot. Sure the story was retarded, but the camera work was incredible. Also, the Director's commentary was pretty good.

Haven't seen Crank 2 though. No monies combined with a general anti-piracy attitude means I'm waiting until it hits the Library to watch it.

I'll just lock up two kids that are hopped up whatever drug it is the kids are doing these days and watch them fight it out. I'm sure I'll get the same experience.

I hated the original Crank, and went to Crank 2 fully planning to regret it. But I did not regret it!

I thought it was great for what it was, a crazy-ridiculous action movie.
The cameos were great and random, like the one with Maynard James Keenan as the nerdy dog owner.

I didn't care for the first one. But it was better than I expected. Probably due to the cinematography of it.
Really it is just entertainment at its most base. Purely so, which I respect. So fundamentally base it almost is self-parody. Just take all of our primal instincts and jam them into a movie.
I have minor interest in seeing the follow-up.

I thought the first one was really good- good being that it accomplished exactly what the directors sought out to do, nonstop action.

I saw an interview with the guys and they were like, "Basically, we wanted to make an action movie that was non-stop action, and this was the storyline that could do it".

So I enjoyed the first one and I'll probably enjoy the second one.
