Ra. One Reviews

April 13, 2015
It's a film where no character or relationship gets fleshed out well, the climax plays out flat and the crucial fight to the finish meets with a rather tame end.

The whole film seems to be dipped in the stop-start-go stutter of an overlong video game.

Much of the film is marked by a sense of dead air, owing to the fact that there's not a lot of story, but nevertheless, per Bollywood conventions, a lot of time to fill.

The film is as cheesy as it sounds.

The movie has a witty sense of punky, gaming-style esthetics that American blockbusters try for but can't quite achieve.

It never feels cynically niche-marketed or fundamentally bored with itself, the way so many big-budget American movies do.

Anubhav Sinha's exhilarating fantasy "Ra.One" is Bollywood at its best.

It champions an incoherently hackneyed kind of morality where filial piety matters more than treating your fellow man well.

The most expensive Bollywood movie ever made, "Ra.One," a sci-fi superhero thriller, is a kind of entertainment machine set to dazzle, Hindi cinema with a crush on high-tech.

RA.ONE nicely serves two masters -- good family values and good capitalist instincts.
