Thrilling...! But....
9 August 2004 | by the_rock_83ukSee all my reviews

Overall the movie is great. The fight scenes are brilliant! Especially the one straight after Arjun Rampal is captured. Arjun's introduction is wicked..! The only downfall of the movie, is that it includes the India vs Pakistan theme. Which we could do without, now that both countries are starting to come together. Priyanka Chopra is absolutely stunning in the movie. Although the songs just come out of nowhere. The movie would do a lot better if it didn't have this indi-paki theme. As well as having too many characters. It just makes it difficult to fit them in the movie. which is about 2hrs 10mins long. If it were at least 2hrs 45mins - 3hrs. Then maybe every character would be given more time to adjust to the movie. Overall I would rate this movie 7/10.
