Critic Reviews for Don 2

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

The overly long Don 2 falls short on two key points -- the screenplay and Khan's performance.

It's a slick journey across Thailand, Malaysia, Switzerland and Germany which even manages to refer to the current Euro crisis.

Top Critic

As written and directed by Akhtar and thesped by Khan, Don takes such devilish delight in confounding his enemies' expectations that the viewer cannot help but revel in his cleverness.

Director Farhan Akhtar shoots and cuts the action awkwardly, not quite knowing where to place the camera, so the film never gets the slam-bang momentum it might want.

If "Mission: Impossible" and "Ocean's Eleven" had a bombastic, funny and slick cousin, it might be "Don 2."

This is the movie that proves Hindi cinema is finally mastering the sequel.

Audience Reviews for Don 2

A predictable heist flick. Farhan tries to give it a Hollywood touch, but the problem is that it becomes too apparent and prefers style to substance. If only that were any helpful. Most car-chasing &explosion sequences seem forced in for a show-off than the wee-bit existent plot's demand. SRK overacts as expected. The character requires over-acting, but he beats the character when it comes to it. Not a good co-incidence of being hit by pretentiousness twice in a row. Not used to it; hope won't need to.

A slick, stylish and surprisingly smart Bollywood action movie with a fine performance from Shah Rukh Khan and an array jaw-dropping action sequences that gets the adrenaline pumping
