Well that looks like a relaxing, meditative couple of hours that should have me chilled and ready to cope with life.

F*** yeh!

You know that's half the population right? Probably still not even remotely half the action movies being released regularly... and even if it was there are a lot of years of catching up to do...

Well half the population are women yeah.  Half aren't the 'strong woman, femininity is bad' (could have added 'I hate men' too  ) woman though and there just seems to be a lot of them currently.  I totally get there's a lot of catching up to do and feel they seem to be trying their best to do it.  Ain't for me much (just like similar ones with roles reversed) but take your point - just my opinion.

I don't think the half that is men are exactly Jason Statham despite thinking they are. :)

I'm quite happy to watch Crank 3 with a female lead, 1 and 2 were great mindless fun :)

Actual, proper garbage.

It's basically a low-tempo Crank with a less cohesive gimmick to keep the story going. Editing is awful, Beckinsdale is irritating by virtue of excessive personality (seen before, done better by better actors).

So the plot. Kate is Lindy, who has 'Intermittent explosive disorder'*, meaning that she can snap suddenly and leather the ever-loving bajeesuz out of anyone who chews their food too noisily.

(*this is bullcrap, and it's an insult to anyone who has been diagnosed with this disorder, including a younger me)

She has a therapist, Tucci, who has hooked her up to a vest made of electrodes, with which she can give herself a titular Jolt whenever she feels herself losing control. And it's from this premise we're to believe a 7-stone wet Kate Beckinsdale is an unstoppable killing machine.

It might have worked, if the sum of the parts didn't come across as being thrown together over a drunk weekend. You'll chuckle every time you see the same backlot street set from a different angle. You'll laugh heartily when our heroine starts throwing babies at a police officer, and you'll be left scratching your head when you see a scene showing her apartment, with booby-trapped door leading to a lump of C4 that is literally an altered photograph.



Some might get a kick from Kate's feisty portrayal of the main character, but it's just let down by amateurish directing, poor performances, wasted talent (Bradley & Sarandon get less than 3 minutes' screen time - total), and a 'twist' that is obvious by the fact that

SPOILER:
When one of the top-billed actors is killed off in the first few scenes, it's a dead cert they're going to show up again at some point

If there's one positive, once the movie gets away from that one street set, some of the interior set designs are bloody impressive. I just hope they didn't pay too much for them
