asian gangsters, thugs and hookers in crank 2: high voltage

Oh man. We knew it was coming. I don't know how they've done it, considering the event at the end of the first movie, but they have gone ahead and made a sequel to Crank. You know, the ridiculous movie where Jason Statham plays a guy who is injected with a toxic "Chinese cocktail" that will kill him unless he keeps his adrenaline pumping? Yeah.

I first heard about this when it was announced last year that our favorite weirdo Bai Ling has a role in the movie. Automatically, that's a strike against it. But wait, here's the synopsis, according to IMDb: "Chelios 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."

That's right, baby. Another ridiculous premise and more Chinese mobsters! What is it with Jason Statham and Asian gangsters? Seriously. Transporters, Crank, War... now this. And is it just me, or does he essentially play the same guy in every movie he's in?

Watch the uncensored, not-safe-for-work, for-restricted-audiences-only trailer for Crank 2: High Voltage here. Lots of Asian gangsters, thugs and hookers up in there. The movie opens in theaters in April. I guarantee you won't see me standing in line for this one.

UPDATE: Oh yeah. Word has it, none other than Kwai Chang Caine himself, David Carradine has a cameo rocking the yellowface in Crank 2 as the has Chinese mobster who steals Chelios' heart. Wow. This movie is really going there, and they just don't care.
