Critic Reviews for Don 2
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."
Audience Reviews for Don 2
Don 2 delivers the goods, it is impressive all the way, but somehow feels flat. With his aim to make it bigger, Farhan Akhtar makes it relentless. He breaks rules, gives us one of the longest, full-blown action climaxes in memory post Lagaan. And yeah the Don-Roma chemistry increasingly reminds us of the other infamous pair Clarice Starling - Hannibal Lector. I'm nitpicking, don't miss it coz THE KING IS BACK!
Thank you Don 2 for making the 5 year wait worth it. Never before have I seen such a slick action film in Bollywood, this one is up there with all the Hollywood biggies. Don 2 is a non stop roller coaster ride, which keeps accelerating right through. The opening is gritty and gets the film of to a great start as it moves from set-piece to set-piece. Even the one song, is stylishly picturised. Each action sequence is perfectly timed and brilliantly executed, except probably the car chase which could have been more destructive. The second half is Don's ace heist and one is constantly tense about who can and can't be trusted as everyone is trying to outsmart the other. Sheesh, I have run out of smart words to put this, DON 2 IS AWESOME!!! Definitely worth a watch (maybe more), even if you don't like SRK. The KING IS BACK.
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.
