So as the summer comes to a slow descent, we are about to get treated to one more heat wave, in the form of Jason Statham. With his new film, Crank scheduled to open on Friday, Statham plays a hitman injected with a toxic poison that will kill him if he doesn't keep his adrenaline up. Of course, what I really expect will happen is it will be the audience that is all pumped up - not only by the non-stop action, but by Statham himself.
The man truly deserves his mantle of the next action hero, not to mention he oozes sex appeal and charm. Don't believe me, watch Snatch, Transporter 2 or Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Oh, and there is a much talked about scene in Crank where he rides down the highway in just a hospital gown bare-assed. Enjoy the rush!
