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.
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.
Don 2 is a thoroughly exhilarating action-fest.
Don 2 is a classic action/crime thriller that doesn't let go, even for a moment. More importantly, the plot has been finely crafted, with every twist and turn falling into place like a complicated albeit neat little jigsaw.
With a tightly wound plot that plays out on a global stage, this slick production creates a spectacle of car chases, clever intrigue, and criminality.
The picture promises to never end.
More than a worthy sequel, it is simply an exciting and downright fun thrill ride of a movie, period, and Farhan Akhtar deserves his due as one of the great mainstream film talents currently working anywhere, period.
A slickly made, aggressively commercial franchise blockbuster that indicates Bollywood is now thinking globally, not just locally.
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
