Professional assassin Chev Chelios learns his rival has injected him with a poison that will kill him if his heart rate drops.
The word "cunt" was not originally going to be spoken. The line was written in the script, but the word's presence on Jason Statham's forehead was a last minute inclusion by editor Brian Berdan.
In the beginning, Chev wakes up to his cell phone ringing. When he finishes watching the DVD and rushes out the door, his cell is ringing again, yet when the phone is shown, it only says "1 unanswered call".
At the very end of the credits, we see "Crank" as if it was a retro video game. Chev shoots two henchmen, then he takes a needle containing drugs and goes into RAMPAGE mode and runs fast. He runs into another henchman who injects him with "The Bejing Cocktail", the camera zooms in on Chev's heart which explodes and blood splatters on the screen. And the words "Game Over" appears on the screen.
German FSK-16 version is cut for violence (97 seconds). Uncut version is rated "Not under 18".
