Screenplay And Action Review:

The action sequence will hold you captivated. A few scenes will surely make you feel the goose bumps. Right from war trucks, to helicopters and fast moving planes. The movie has it all. The high and mighty superstars of Hollywood are part of this amazing action adventure, they add life to the plot and make every minute of the movie worth watching. The direction is also excellent and the team has done a much better job when compared to the presequel. The background score and music is also captivating and matches the pace of the movie. The song "I just want to celebrate" is remarkable and full of spark. Foot tapping and full of energy, this song is simply the best the film has to offer.

Although there are many scenes worth mentioning, yet the climax and the man to man fight between Barney Ross and the Jean Vilian will surely make you bite your nails in apprehension.

Although all the sequences were worth watching, this particular sequence gave you the full worth of your money.

Final Verdict:

The movie is worth watching for people who love action. It has the perfect blend of ingredients required to dish out an action thriller with class. A smattering of strategically made one liner only added punch to the plot. Surely worth every penny spent.
