Disaster Every bit of it!

There is nothing in the film that can justify the money and energy behind making it - shoddy writing, sad story, disgusting sequences and ridiculous editing - everything about the film is wrong. At best, it is an excuse for Prabhudheva to appear dancing on screen and the Ajay to go top less flauntin...(more)

Action Jackson, a surefire Golden Kela contender, could give Humshakals a run for its money. Give it a miss.

The film proffers the worst of everything � obnoxious characters, mindless situations, juvenile action sequences, raucous music, bizarre dance routines and pathetically cheap gags � with nary a sign of any redeeming feature that could lessen the blow. Prabhu Dheva the director seems to have lost it...(more)

Ajay Devgn doesn't need to stoop this low.

This could have been an entertainingly retro comic-book revenge saga, especially because it has a dashing bad girl who has more screen time, and much more neon-lit presence, than everyone else in the flick.Prabhu Dheva had the smarts, he would have given Manasvi Mamgai a more filled-out part, and go...(more)

Action Jackson is a milestone in feminist cinema

Action Jackson is a drinking game of a film, one well over the so-bad-it�s-good line, its main merit being that in a sea of superstar-massaging vehicles, it holds some genuine surprises -- and makes sure its hero looks like a jackass. Skip the first half and smuggle in a quart of something bitter, ...(more)

This one is strictly for Ajay Devgn fans

The story of Action Jackson has little new to offer except, maybe for the vamp. Manasvi Mamgai plays Xavier's sister who is crazily in love with AJ - Devgn. And she literally is CRAZY. Even her first shot in the movie, we see a girl surounded by tens of goons in a den. The girl is beaten rashly and ...(more)

ACTION JACKSON is a highly avoidable affair.

The film starts off with the entry of Vishy (Ajay Devgn) in his regular fashion that's combined with �lan and style. For reasons unexplained till almost the interval, Vishy is at the target point of many goons who follow him left, right and centre to bump him off. As if this wasn't enough, there com...(more)

The comic relief that a brief character of Kunal Roy Kapur brings into an otherwise traumatizing film.

Truly putting it down, this movie is worth your watch for what I would list down as only two reasons. A) You are a die-hard Ajay Devgn fan. B) You are a fan of �no-brainer� movies. (Literally �no-brainer�), It would be difficult to start counting that as not only does the screenplay go haywire, but ...(more)

Action Jackson is simply 145 mins of nothing.

Ajay Devgn is the only good part of this 145 minutes of nothing, he is sincere and does his part with full honesty; be it dance or action. Sonakshi Sinha continues to take up meaningless roles in commercial films which don't do any good to her. Prabhudeva is one of our best choreographers, his tale...(more)
