Force 2 isn’t unwatchable, and it won’t give you a migraine either. But it is a wildly inconsistent film that fills up the gaps between its many action sequences with ridiculous attempts at humor and drama. Hopefully this franchise ends here.

John Abraham is efficient and does what he needs to, Tahir Raj Bhasin adds complexity to his character. However, much more was needed to rise above the sluggish script.

Force 2 has a noble heart. It wants to get the undercover agents, who selflessly serve the nation, their due. But the narrative hasn’t taken a favourable shape. Sadly, it’s mostly about muscles and very less about intelligence.

Overall the film will appeal to those who love to see action and want to see John Abraham doing it. And yes, he is even bulkier this time around.

The fundamental flaw in a film like this -- other than the repetitive wowlessness of it all -- is the fact that by creating too dry and no-nonsense protagonists instead of fleshing them out as characters, you end up failing the genre. There is only one thing a smashing action movie should aim to be: fantastic nonsense. 

At the end of its 127 minutes run amidst relentless gunshots and car crashes, charm (on Force 2's end) and clemency (on mine) has run its course. What prevails is more phew than force.

It's the sheer predictability of this narrative form that drags Force 2 down a few notches. Be that as it may, it is an entertainer that passes muster. And if you are a John Abraham fan, there can be no reason whatever to give Force 2 a miss.

Force 2 is a Bollywood action entertainer. Don’t go with high hopes and you’ll surprise yourself.

'Force 2' is a decent entertainer for the thrill-seekers, the action won’t disappoint. Go ahead and may the force be with you!

Force 2 is a great watch mainly because it stays true to its genre and provides ample adrenaline rush. John Abraham is in top form and the film has some of the best action sequences shot this year. Force 2 has loads of bang worth your buck.

Force 2 raises a tricky point. Should RAW agents be named and called martyrs instead of the country washing its hands off them if they're killed in service?Maybe the government will be able to answer that. As for us commoners, Force 2 is a decent one-time watch. Just make sure your ears are seasoned to bear loud noise.

FORCE 2 is a power packed adrenaline pumping action thriller which has the right mixture of zing and force. At the Box-Office, the film will be appreciated by the audience. However the lack of chartbuster music, romance and demonetisation might act as a spoilsport for the movie. All in all, FORCE 2 is however worth a shot!

6

All said and done, Force 2 should be watched for its stellar action sequences. They’re high on both quality and quantity. If you’ve grown up enjoying the careers of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, this film can provide a very satisfactory experience.

When you spoil a good movie by doing a bad sequel then the crime gets doubled, but FORCE 2 is in an altogether different zone, I questioned the logic behind the remake of the lousy HIMMATWALA and now I need a spy to understand what was so great about FORCE that we had a forced FORCE 2 as a sequel.

Adrenaline junkies might fancy the film, despite the bizarre juxtaposition of the 'Mr India' (1987) chartbuster, 'Kaate Nahi Katte', in a Budapest nightclub. Strangely, the scantily-clad local girls can mouth the Hindi song and gyrate to it, but the next moment the lead dancer can only talk in their language. Don't try to fathom it or the plot, just enjoy the Budapest scenery instead.

Force 2 is not a great one for spreading the message of peace.  It would rather do its job of giving us stunts that keep us riveted  to our seats.But it does bring up the issue of a very disturbing political tragedy  whereby those who are caught spying are disowned by  their own country. It’s a chilling thought on betrayal and loss, not quite the mood that this upbeat fiery and feisty actioner wants to dwell on. But it really can’t really help acquiring a conscience while taking a well-aimed shot at giving Hollywood stunts films a run for their money.

    Force 2's screenplay is underwhelming and the cast fails to impress.

    Force 2 seems forced and raw. The reckless and tough cop Yash (Joh Abraham) teams up with RAW agent KK (Sonakshi Sinha) for investigating the traitor who reveals the names of RAW agents to the enemies. They head to Budapest where hide and seek between them and the villain Shiv (Tahir) begins. The screenplay is underwhelming and the cast fails to impress.

    The sequel ‘Force 2’ is primarily about the RAW, about heartily saluting our bold, daring and brave RAW soldiers who die for their homeland and also when caught are not recognized by their own nation too.

    Having in lead John and Sonakshi, the film starts with a heroic entry of John Abraham (ACP Yashvardhan). So, a few RAW agents in China are killed and of the few one was Yashvardhan’s best friend, he before dying informs Yash to help out all the other agents from just dying. Then Yash with KK (Sonakshi Sinha), who too is a special agent go to Budapest to save all the RAW agents. While in the investigation, the both get to know the killer and from then on the thief-police game starts between them and the main antagonist (Tahir Raj Bhasin). What will happen and will both be able to save the RAW agents who are alive or something else lies in the story.

    The duo John, Sonakshi are seen all through the film fighting and beating many. There is nothing groovy in their acts here excluding their appreciative action talent and their emulation. And watching Tahir on the screen keeps everyone engaged and just entirely mingled with the film. He is pleasing and really fantastic, with guilt less face he easily attains audience interests and also through his stellar act.

    Abhinay’s direction is indeed a laborious one and the very interesting part of the film is the action itself, genuine, shot well and the story too. He has released the film on the right time.

    A few denials of the film one can spot is the music, mainly the recreated song – O Jaaniya, it bores. A bit common sense too doesn’t find its way. And some scenes are also devoid of originality and completeness.

    The Final Words – This is a film that shows us the reality about RAW agents who get killed in many countries, since their identity gets revealed. They do not even get fame, reverent and dignity, not even they are praised after doing so much for the nation and neither their family is taken care of by the Government. They might remain anonymous for many. But for themselves, their families and for their nation they are truly the best Heroes. A big salute to all the RAW agents.

    It is good to watch the film rather than read about it here.

    So, I am going with 6 stars out of 10 stars.
