A pathetic film in every sense
6 December 2014 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

As I begin writing my views on Parbhudeva's Action Jackson, the thought that do come to mind is that how silly and crap a movie can be made with massive budget , high cost production and popular star cast ? There are movies like Queen and Gangs Of Wasseypur with high quality content and shoe string budget and yet managed to impress the audience. Why do spend money on useless script and horrible stories and yet actors like Ajay Devgan are working with him ?

Action Jackson is a masala entertainment telling the story of 2 look-alike. Life changes when they cross each other's part.

From the critical acclaimed Wanted and entertainers like Rowdy Rathore and R..Rajkumar to disaster movie like Ramaiya Vastavaiya in which the definition of Story, Script and direction does not fit it. In Action Jackson, you will wonder how amateurish can Prabhudeva get. Imagine a scene where Sonakshi Sinha wants her luck to change only if she can see Ajay Devagan's g-part again. Editing is horrible. The torture goes on for almost 3 hours. Art direction is good. Cinematography is nice. Songs are pathetic. Ajay Devgan disappoints and disappoints big time. An actor of his calibre should be doing better films.

Overall, a pathetic film in every sense. Poor- 1/5
