Crank 2: High voltage post-release - Page 5
After a couple of viewings, I've decided I love this movie. In fact my computer background was Chev Chelios on fire and flipping the camera off for a long time, until CHUD came out with that Jason X background. It's been mentioned before but the saddest thing about this film dying in theaters, is that we will get no CRANK 3D.
Also, I'm sure they greenlit Crank 2 more on the success of the DVD/Blu-Ray than on the theatrical box office.
Well, having just bought the Blu-ray, I have to say that the picture quality is stunning considering that it was shot on Prosumer camera's. Some of the wide angle, shaky cam stuff gets on my nerves and the color correction gives it that annoying music video/commercial look but when the shots are framed well, HOLY SHIT does it look good. If Hollywood really wants to bring their budgets down, they've got to take a note from Crank 2 that you don't need super fancy equipment. They shot a fucking crazy action flick for about 20 mill. That means they could have made Crank 2 six times for the cost of a piece of shit like How Do You Know which was budgeted at 120 million fucking dollars!?!?! Keeping the budget low ensures that there is less at risk and, thus, means that you can be more experimental and innovative which is exactly what Crank 2 is.
