Professional assassin Chev Chelios learns his rival has injected him with a poison that will kill him if his heart rate drops.
The film has a number of references to video games, especially the early "Grand Theft Auto" series.
During the chase scene in the yellow car, the positions of the two chasing cars change in impossible ways.
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".
