Force 2 - Movie Review

Verdict - "Well-shot grandiose action sequences doesn't make a good movie."

Directed by Abhinay Deo, Force 2 starring John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles is the sequel to the 2011 action film "Force" and trundles around the plot of Indian R.A.W agents getting killed in foreign countries by the Chinese mob without any explanation. Caught in distraught, Indian government dispatches KK (Sonakshi Sinha) and Yash (John Abraham) to Budapest for the case inquiry where they run, dodge and fight against a series of goons throughout the entire runtime of the film.

The positives of the movie were certainly its action sequences, the 127-minute runtime was packed with skillfully choreographed and well-shot combat scenes that were contemporary and justified the genre appropriately. But, although it had a valid message to convey, the story and the screenplay of the film were a mess. The screenwriters failed to tell a compelling story from the get-go and when the movie finally approached the climax it felt underwhelming and presented itself as an inferior product.

John Abraham is without a doubt the perfect fit for this larger-than-life maniac cop role, his physicality, and charisma corresponds to the character properly and even though he was not impressive (again) with his facial expressions, he carried his role accordingly and the made the film watchable. Sonakshi Sinha was yet again remarkable and believable as an action star and is certainly stepping up her game by choosing challenging roles in every film. Tahir Raj Bhasin was a surprise addition to the film, his style, and his laid-back mellow attitude worked as a great counterpart to John's fierce demeanor and the director didn't fail to emphasize that on-screen.

Overall, excluding the stylistic, grandiose action sequences Force 2 had nothing to offer in terms of story and screenplay. Parts of it were entertaining to watch but the tension, appeal, and the intrigue were completely missing making it look like a mediocre sequel.

My Rating - 2.75/5
Grade - C + (Decent Flick!)
