    Proof that you can make good movies based on video games, as long as you don't bother making a video game first. Juice us up for Crank 3D.

    Laughably and knowingly preposterous, cheerfully un-PC, and violent in a way that makes the myriad slaphappy deaths of Wile E. Coyote seem downright dull in comparison.
