Chev Chelios is about to begin his morning with an unexpected wake-up call. Groggy, practically unable to move and with a heart that's barely beating, he hears the voice of thug Ricky Verona, who reveals Chev has been poisoned in his sleep and only has an hour to live.

As it turns out, Chev is a hit man who freelances for a major West Coast syndicate. A run of the mill job the night before instead went awry: he let his target slip away in an effort to quit professional killing and start a new life with his girlfriend Eve.

Now, Chev must keep moving to stay alive: the only way to prolong the poison from stopping his heart is to keep his adrenaline flowing. As the clock ticks, Chelios cuts a swath through the streets of Los Angeles, wreaking havoc on those who dare stand in his way. He must rescue Eve from danger, stay two steps ahead of his nemeses and search for an antidote to save his own life.

Take a Look at ‘Crank 2’'s New Heart

The Abiocor is designed to keep you alive only for a couple of days while waiting for a transplant. It is not built for strenuous activity.

The internal battery charges wirelessly through the transcutaneous energy transfer system - two coils, one internal and one external that transmit power via magnetic force across the skin without piercing the surface. The internal coil receives the power and sends it to the controller device. Basically Chev has to keep his body electrically charged to keep his ticker running. Whereas in the first movie he needed adrenaline to stay alive, in Crank: High voltage he needs jolts of electricity to stay alive.

‘Crank’ is Number One in Sales and Rentals!

Movie PictureThe new year has just begun and Lionsgate has already Crank'd things up on DVD!

Crank, the non-stop, action-packed theatrical film released on DVD by Lionsgate, the leading independent filmed entertainment studio, reigned supreme among this week's new DVD releases, opening at #1 on both the DVD sales and rental charts. Earning almost $30 million in domestic box office, the thriller, starring Jason Statham and Amy Smart sold 2 million units in its first week, with 1.4 millions sold on its first day of release. After its first week, Crank appears positioned to significantly overindex its theatrical box office performance on DVD, reflecting another example of Lionsgate's typically high theatrical box office to DVD conversation rate. The Crank DVD, breaking new ground for the home viewing experience, moved beyond the traditional special features with the creation of "Crank'd Out Mode," providing more information (including in-depth interviews, behind-the-scenes- footage, outtakes and more) than has ever been available at one time, all without ever leaving the film. The movie was also released day and date on 50 GB Blu-ray disc in the U.S.
