a different "iron - man"
3 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

its not as same as the previous ones. But a must watch. The movie is well directed, well poised. This movie deals more with the human emotions and the separation from real love because of the involvement of machines in the life of a human. Movie tags along well and well keep it to your seats till the very end. I have not given it a 10/10 because the plot could have been a slightly better. But, nevertheless the movie is awesome, and a must watch. a complete family thriller. ACTING - 10/10 DIRECTION - 10/10 PLOT - 8/10 CLIMAX - 8.5/10 ACTION - 10/10 THRILL - 9/10 CINEMATOGRAPHY - 9/10 VFX - 10/10 . OVERALL - 9/10. :) . ENJOY IT! MUST WATCH!
