Crank is a 2006 action thriller starring Jason Statham as Chev Chelios, a former hitman who wakes up to discover that he's been poisoned with a formula that stops the flow of adrenaline to his heart. In order to keep himself alive, Chelios finds himself resorting to extreme measures to keep his adrenaline up throughout the day as he attempts to discover a way to counteract the poison. The film was directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, and despite the film's seemingly unfortunate ending, Statham would return as Chelios in the 2009 sequel Crank: High Voltage.
The following weapons were used in the film Crank:

Chelios holds his Springfield Armory XD on Orlando (Reno Wilson
) when interrogating him on finding Ricky Verona (Jose Pablo Cantillo
) for drugging him.
Chelios' Springfield XD miss-fires when he tries to shoot Verona's brother in the alleyway, the result of him diving into a pool while still wearing the gun (which SHOULD have no effect on a SA XD that's tested for such things). He then disposes of it in the garbage bin.
Chelios readies his spare XD for the show down on the roof. You could not ask for a clearer shot.
Chelios fires his XD at Verona on the rooftop. Note how the shell in mid-flight is a blank.

) as he tries to escape in a helicopter.
Chelios gets his hands on a Kahr K9 pistol which he uses to threaten the Warehouse Rooftop Hood (Noel Gugliemi) on the textile mill roof before throwing him off. He then uses it for the start of the shootout in the mill before it runs out of ammo.

A Beretta 92FS is seen in the hands of one of the gangster in the club and is the standard issue sidearms of the police department. Chelios steals a Beretta off an officer at one point and taunts his with it before tossing it away to give him enough time to steal his bike. At one point in the film, an assassin tries to kill Chelios and his girlfriend Eve (Amy Smart) with a sound suppressed Beretta 92FS but Chelios kills him before she is even aware.

Smith & Wesson Model 500
To stay faithful to the character of a typical villain expression, "A little pussy with a big gun in his hand", Ricky Verona (Jose Pablo Cantillo) wields the most powerful production revolver, a Smith & Wesson Model 500 with a 4" barrel as his sidearm in the film. He is most prominently seen using it during the roof shootout, in which Chelios throws a wine bottle at Verona's hand, causing him to drop his Model 500, which fires and blows off four of his fingers. One of the gangsters in the club is seen with one as well.

Magnum Research Inc. Mark I Desert Eagle
When Chelios tries to interrogate Orlando, several of the gangsters in the club draw Desert Eagles. One of these Desert Eagles is an Early Mark I in .357 Magnum, the other is a flashpaper gun. Chelios later acquires one of these Desert Eagles off of Verona's brother in the back alley-way. Since he has to fire it at such close range, the gun is a flashpaper model during that scene. Later when Chelios goes to the hospital in search of epinephrine, the Desert Eagle changes to the Mark I model, which he fires several shots from before leaving it in the hospital elevator.

Chelios holds the Desert Eagle to the doctor (Glenn Howerton
), ordering him to give him epinephrine. The gun is a chrome plated Mark I .357 Magnum.

Chelios holds back the officers in the building with the Desert Eagle.

The thug on the rooftop with the AKMSU pulls out an M26 hand grenade to throw at Carlito's men on the roof. Carlito then uses one of his own men to deflect the grenade.
The thug pulls the pin on his M26 grenade with his teeth. In the real world, this is a good way to loose your teeth.(Poor dead hooker)
The primed M26 grenade lands.
While this has nothing to do with guns, I figured this was worth noting. At the end of the film when Chelios and Verona fight in a helicopter that seems to fly up to about a 1000ft in the air, Chelios falls out and leaves one last message on his girlfriend Eve's phone. Somehow the wind that would be rushing past his phone does not interfere with the call in anyway, even though in real life the call would be inaudible.
Chelios leaves a message on his girlfriends answering machine as he falls to the ground. Somehow the rapid wind does not make the call any less clear.
At one point in the sequel, we hear the message is nothing but wind, despite the fact we hear it clear as day on Eve's message machine. Although, this was likely the way Chev was imagining it would hear.
