It was the ideal film for me to watch today noon at cinemax, with
nothing to do on a visit to a megacity with bro. Liam Neeson's films
seem to be typical...this one follows the lines of Taken in a slightly
similar fashion. A not-so-happy cop or ex cop, tall and charming and
elegant but divorced with kids issues taking on some bad guys who want
to harm him and others. Soon comes in thrill and speed, kicking and
fighting, bam bam and boom boom, and well I'm not gonna spoil anything
The typical cop, an ex FBI guy, now an air marshal, is caught in a dilemma 35000 feet above when someone threatens him on board mid air by sms to kill passenger after passenger if he does not get him 150 million dollars transferred to an account. The cop has no option but to find out who is trying to terrorize everyone, but is in for surprises he would not be expecting.
Concept? Great...similar to Taken, like I said before, but definitely an unconventional film. It's not a typical hijack movie that you have seen before but it nevertheless keeps you hooked on.
Liam plays his stereotyped role quite well, all others have done their best too. 90% of the film is shot on an aircraft, with realistic effects. Movie never drags, and is fast paced.
Some stuff is not well explained, as you will know when you reach the end.
Really enjoyed watching this thriller of the 90's. The film is a short
run, describing the high paced story of an executive who visits the USA
with his daughter, and who is then blackmailed by conspirators into
assassinating the to be governor, else his daughter will be killed.
It may look old fashioned now, but it definitely will keep one at the edge of his seat from start to end, like "Vantage point". Johnny Depp has played his part well. Everything in the film is commendable. It has good thrills and action sequences, and sudden twists that you probably would not even expect.
Should be watchable
I haven't watched Dhoom 1 or 2 yet, but this film is pretty
An Indian circus man's son in Chicago sets out to take revenge on a banker who is responsible for his father's death, by looting all their banks in the city and devastating them. Unable to nab him, the US police rope in two Indian cops to try and find the culprit, but things do not go easy for them to, as the thief is too smart for them and uses tactics they would not even imagine.
Just thrill - that's all. The film is fats paced , has catchy numbers, good acting on the part of all actors, some amazing circus acrobatics and choreography, and of course bike chases. The film seems to be made on lines on Tamil and Telugu cinema, especially the stuff shot in India. Some things are not really explained, and the viewer cannot figure it out himself, but that's OK.
Watch on big screen only

A masala thriller flick especially meant for Ajith Kumar fans.
Story is about Ashok Kumar played by Ajith, a bomb expert who for reasons unclear explodes public places, works against the law and ropes in a techie to assist him with is criminal activities under threat to the latter's girlfriend's life. The second half of the film though takes a surprising turn of events.
Film is just masalas - Dialogue, action, music...don't look for logic as there is deficiency of that in many places. Many things are unexplained-what happens to Ajith's sidekick 'Mango'?How does the protagonist survive after being thrown of a cliff by the villains? How does the protagonist manage to go all the way to Dubai with a guy and girl, kill people, loot a bank and return to India overnight? How do some terrorists kidnap a minster's daughter in Dubai and bring her overnight? How does the protagonist get away in the end after openly revealing who he is?
None of these are answered, but that does not make it a bad film. It is quite thrilling, with hardcore dialogues, emotions well expressed by actors, cool stunts and action sequences, and music that is alright.
If you are not prejudiced against Suniel Shetty, then this movie is an
MDPABH - this long titled flick is the story of Amar Joshi, a Banarasi film buff aspiring to be a director against everyone's wishes, who studies film direction in London and comes to Mumbai (the same old place where everyone in Hindi cinema comes to realize their dreams since time memorial), where accompanied by sidekick Suraj, an aspiring TV actor, he sets out to find a producer who will accept the script of his art film. Things are not easy for Amar as he is ridiculed, ignored and even rejected until he finds Monty, a producer who agrees to accept his script. But this again leads to issues for Amar. The rest is about whether or not Amar makes it big in Bollywood.
The film concept is interesting, but it probably won't appeal to anyone nowadays, combined with the prejudice people have. Hence no one would have even noticed when the film came to or left the theatres.
But Suniel Shetty's acting is good, and the film also has some famous names like Om Puri and Rajpal Yadav who have definitely done their best for their parts. There are few comedy scenes which are hilarious. The songs are catchy, and I decided to watch this because I heard a few tracks and liked them. Choreography is not good, some actors are just cheap ones acting in a cheap film that is being depicted in the film.
The first half is better than the second half.
Cannot watch more than once
Well now that it's come tom part 9, that means Jason has survived so
long. Nothing on earth has been able to eliminate Jason, who goes on
killing people pointlessly, as though he hasn't had his revenge for
decades together, even after killing almost everyone who even set foot
on camp crystal lake.
The police have come out with a new idea. They set a trap for Jason, into which he falls, and then they ravage him with bullets and even bombard him with explosives to ensure he is destroyed. Unfortunately the heart survives, and starting with the Autopsy doctor, Jason now starts to possess people and carry on his grotesque activities, killing everyone on his path and especially killing those involved in illicit sex.
The only way to kill Jason is by ensuring he dies at the hand of his only 2 relatives on earth. And Jason goes on a murder spree to find these relatives, so that he remains invincible. The rest of the story shows whether or not his relatives, guided by a bounty hunter, are able to eliminate him or not forever.
Like my title says, the film is all gore and sex. I even found it funny many a time. Effects are good. Everything else is just like the FTT reviews I've posted for this film's predecessors.
I don't think it would work out in the 21st century. Well....you decide whether you wanna watch
I am watching an amazing 3D film after really long, with effects that
really give you the feel of being in outer space. It really is an
'experience' to watch Gravity.
A group of astronauts researching in space are hit by debris from a destroyed satellite, killing most of them except two, and the two have to survive and make it to earth with limited resources, floating all alone in space.
Unique concept, great effects and a perfect score, well acted especially by both protagonists,make this film a worth watch, but of course only on big screen.
It's short and fast paced and keeps you hooked to the edge of your seat.
I went without much expectations to watch this on the big screen but
got more than I had expected, including few nights of sleeplessness.
A group of 7 youngsters-4 guys and 3 girls decide to spend a night at a reportedly haunted hotel to celebrate the farewell of one of them leaving for the USA. Despite people's warnings and other "signs" trying to ward them off from there, they enter the hotel, and then the truth dawns on them.
This is a very basic film - no big actors, no hype, nothing...just a simple film but it will scare the living daylights out of you. It has the essential ingredients to do just that. All actors have acted pretty well. And also it DOES NOT have the stuff that spoils the essence of horror in many other horror films, like 'item songs', sleaze, etc. Well, there are NO SONGS at all....which is but basic an ingredient for a good horror flick.
Definitely recommended and definitely deserves more attention.
FTT 8may be notable for the few differences it presents over FTT 1 to
A batch of graduating youngsters are attacked one by one on the ship by ruthless Jason, who is still not dead and wants to kill all such partying guys. Only this time, he has gone beyond the boundaries of his camp crystal lake.
FTT 8 also follows the basic outline of its predecessors with the only difference being that this time, the partying victims do the same things on a cruise boat, and Jason manages to reach NY in this film.
Costumes and make up? Not at all scary.
Best actor? Maybe Jason himself.
Now you decide whether to watch or not.

There is nothing special in the film, and it is too long. Its just a
love story admixed with some family drama and a topping of business
Two brothers who would die for each other fall in love with the same girl. The girl loves only one of them but their conscience and egos come into play, and each one has to decide what they will do. To add to problems are some rivals who want to see the family destroyed.
The good- the title song only, and Sunny Deol's serious nature acting(not his romancing and dancing). Otherwise everything else is just average.
This is one of the few films in which Sunny Deol dies in the end( but of course, not before he eliminated the villains).
I watched because I am a Sunny Deol fan. Else no one else would watch this film.
