  • a.k.a. Crank 1

Als Chev Chelios in seiner Wohnung aufwacht, erinnert er sich nicht mehr daran, was die letzte Stunde passiert ist. Glücklicherweise findet er im Wohnzimmer eine DVD, die ihm die ersten Minuten seines Schlafes dokumentiert: der Kriminelle Ricky Verona und sein Bruder schlugen ihn zusammen und injizierten ihm dann ein chinesisches Gift, das sich schnell in seinem Körper ausbreitet. Der Effekt: innerhalb kürzester Zeit soll er tot sein. Schnell realisiert er, dass er am Abend bereits tot sein wird und macht sich auf den Weg, um vor seinem baldigen Ende wenigstens noch Rache zu üben, da es kein Gegenmittel zu geben scheint. Nur Adrenalinstöße können die Wirkung des Gifts verlangsamen, weshalb seine Reise durch L.A. bald zu einem andauernden Amoklauf mutiert, dessen Weg nicht nur Verona und seine Männer kreuzen. Und dann wäre da noch Chevs Freundin Eve, die bald hineingezogen wird und die er um jeden Preis beschützen will...

  • a.k.a. Hyper Tension

Chev Chelios est un tueur à gages qui n'a pas rempli un banal contrat : la veille, il a en effet raté sa cible. Et ce matin-là, Chev est réveillé par un coup de téléphone de bien mauvaise augure. À l'autre bout du fil, le malfrat Ricky Verona lui apprend qu'il a été empoisonné dans son sommeil et qu'il ne lui reste qu'une heure à vivre... Désormais, Chelios ne doit surtout pas rester immobile - sous peine de mourir d'un instant à l'autre : il lui faut stimuler son adrénaline pour empêcher le poison de provoquer un arrêt cardiaque. Dans une terrible course contre la montre, Chev parcourt les rues de Los Angeles, n'hésitant pas à affronter ceux qui osent se mettre en travers de sa route. Il n'a dorénavant d'autre choix que de trouver l'antidote lui permettant d'échapper à une mort certaine...

Chev Chelios è un killer che ha smesso di uccidere per amore della bella Eve. Ma il boss dei duri e cattivi malavitosi della West Coast non ci sta e lo condanna a una morte singolare. Durante il sonno, lo schizzato Ricky Verona inietta a Chev un veleno che arresta il cuore. Per sopravvivere il suo corpo dovrà costantemente rilasciare adrenalina. Far reagire il cuore, creando situazioni di stress, sarà la missione del killer pentito. Lecito e vitale qualsiasi espediente: provocare afroamericani incazzati e armati, guidare in un centro commerciale, scolare Red Bull, cavalcare una moto o possedere la compagna sui marciapiedi di Los Angeles.
