To make matters worse, my first post in a few days is about an awful movie. Barely watchable, even with all the skin and wood Jason Statham gave us.
In Crank, Jason Statham is a hit man who kills a big shot kingpin. The revenge he gets is pretty nasty, he gets injected with some drug that will kill him if his heartbeat falls below a certain rate, so he tries to keep the adrenaline up, running around, beating people up, drinking Red Bull, wreaking havoc...I hated it all.
I had noted in a previous post that Pedro played a tranny.
The portrayal of the tranny was not so bad. Jason's character had her as a trusted friend (she was a criminal, but so was everybody else in the movie). However, Jason uses homophobic slurs all the time, he teases a few gangsters by calling them faggots, that sort of stuff. Nasty. Having a tranny friend does not give him the right to slur, right?
At least we got lots of wood from Jason. At one point he gets a shot that is supposed to help him out with his hearbeat rate, and that shot ends up giving him wood. Like this one:
I had posted that picture before, and wondered whether that was an actual bulge...it turns out, it was a bulge. We also got a little of his butt, but not nearly enough to keep you really interested in this piece of crap.
