more crazy chinese gangsters in crank 2

You've got to be kidding me. It looks like a Crank 2 is in the works: Jason Statham will "Crank" it up again. Jason Statham, who basically plays the same guy in every movie, will reprise his role as a hitman on the run in Crank 2: High Voltage. In the first film, he was injected with a Chinese toxin that would kill him in an hour unless he kept his adrenaline up. At the end of the film, [SPOILER: But I don't really care] he dies, falling many many many feet to the ground from a helicopter. So I'm not quite sure how they're going to explain his return. In the next film, he apparently faces "a Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working." Madness ensues. Oh, those crazy Chinese gangsters and their twisted methods of torment. Frankly, I'm sick of seeing Statham's ugly mug. He's been on my "list" since The Transporter, a movie that takes Asian exploitation to the extreme. This sounds like more of the same.
