Action Jackson Review- Another full on entertainer...
17 April 2015 | by Prashast_SinghSee all my reviews

Movie- Action Jackson Rating- 4/5

Prabhu Dheva has now become a brand name in the action genre. His previous action entertainers Wanted, Rowdy Rathore, R... Rajkumar proved it very well. This time he pairs up with Ajay Devgn and undoubtedly delivers another full on entertainer.

Action Jackson is packed with cool action, foot tapping music, visually delightful action scenes, and funny bone tickling comedy. The performance by all the actors are good. Ajay Devgn is good as always. This time comedy is also good. Debutant Anandraj from South also is good. The action scenes are fantastic as always, plus the execution is improved by the visual effects, especially in the climax which is the best part in the movie.

On the whole, Action Jackson is another entertainer that needs to be watched, if in mood to be really entertained. Just watch it!
