Misfire

The main issue with Action is the screenplay, which doesn't possess the entertainment or the engaging elements that it ought to have. There is a seen-before feeling in every scene, and it gets all the more familiar in the second half which draws lines with Akshay Kumar's Baby and Ben Affleck's Argo....(more)

If you dig the corniness of the lines and the OTT-ness of the stunts, then you might be able to enjoy the film.

The final act is clearly a letdown. Given all the buildup, we expect a strong antagonist who might prove to be more than a match to the protagonists, but what we get is a weak villain, who gets easily outwitted in his own den - Pakistan, where else!(more)

Just lather, that's all

I get that style and glamour are important for a big-budget spy thriller. But, they are not the only pleasures of this genre. The thrill of the chase, the audacity of characters, and the tension over the mission verging on total collapse are what makes us invest in such films. And, yes, it is a bonu...(more)

'Logic' Goes For A Toss In This Vishal Starrer!

Action tries to be too intelligent and smart, which it isn't. Bad writing pulls down the film's prospects.(more)

A below-average action thriller

While the story looks good on paper, Sundar C executes the film like a B-grade mass masala action entertainer in a dramatic manner. The gravity-defying stunts give the feel of watching poorly CG based video game on the big screen. The climax portion featuring Vishal in a bearded look as Pathan is a ...(more)

This Vishal outing promises much, but lacks spine or sense

Sundar C has two or maybe three tricks in his bag... but a sensible script isn't one of them. I know what you must be thinking. Shouldn't movies like Action be taken less seriously, given that it is a 'no-brainer' ? But isn't no-brainer itself an escapist statement? (more)

Vishal, Tamannaah starrer is a formulaic entertainer with no proper storyline

The film drags along for 158 minutes, and the climax is a straight lift of Ben Affleck-directed thriller Argo. The film's weakest point is the characterisation of the villain and the concept of capturing the most wanted don from Pakistan and bringing him to justice in India. This 'wishful plot' has ...(more)

Vishal's scores high on action, but the movie could have been better with an engaging treatment.

The film had a lot of potential, with an interesting premise. But with no strong conflict after that initial phase, everything built on top of it crumbles like a pack of playing cards. More focused storytelling and a little attention to detail could have made the film far better.(more)
