Race 2 Movie Review


Ratings:2.5/5  Race 2 Review By: Rajeev Masand  Site: CNN IBN (IBNLive)
Race 2 is the cinematic equivalent of a trashy novel. It never holds together as a sensible piece of work, but as an insensible piece of work, it’s pretty enjoyable. Director-duo Abbas Mustan create a cocktail of glamorous stars, exotic foreign locations, slick action scenes, and an outrageous plot. At nearly two-and-a-half hours, the film is too long by at least 20 minutes, but I’ll give this to Race 2: it’s seldom boring. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for Abbas-Mustan’s Race 2. The film has no intellectual pretensions; its only ambition is to offer a good time. In that, it mostly succeeds.

Ratings:2.5/5  Race 2 Review By: Taran Adarsh  Site: BollywoodHungama
RACE 2 takes off with a bang. Literally. The twists and turns keep you captivated. The post-interval portions start with gusto, but the writing isn't foolproof. On the whole, RACE 2 has a rocking first half, glam and glitz, great looking men and women, spectacular locales, extravagant making, adrenaline pumping action and of course, a solid brand that's gonna make moviegoers flock the cineplexes initially, but the film lacks the sustaining power thanks to its uneven second half. The writing isn't watertight, the film lacks a hit score, the climax is far from effective and overall, RACE 2 pales in comparison to RACE.

Ratings:2/5  Race 2 Review: Anupama Chopra  Site: Star World (Hindustan Times)
Race 2 is essentially a big-budget cartoon in which coolness is all. The director duo Abbas-Mustan have no pretensions about what they are making - full-on masala with a dash of revenge,The first Race was also pure popcorn, but the twists were delicious and the characters were interesting. Here, writer Shiraz Ahmed and Abbas-Mustan were relying so much on style that they forgot about screenplay. The action sequences are hobbled by lame special effects. And there aren't any killer lines

Ratings:3/5  Review By: Madhureeta Mukherjee  Site:Times Of India (TOI)
Heists, hot-babes, roulette, raging cars, gizmos and gags - Director duo, Abbas-Mustan have thrown in everything with pompous grandeur, save for a riveting plot that shocks or stuns. It focuses on superbly digitized Hollywood-esque actions scenes, racy chases and blow-ups (plus a 'designer' star-cast that salivates on style) - all of which, a visual treat - but it doesn't make your heart race, really. Wish they'd traded in their glitzy stilettos for running shoes and slick suits for a solid story. Then this race would still be in the run, we think.

Ratings:1.5/5  Review By: Saibal Chaterjee  Site: NDTV
Race 2 isn’t so much a sequel as an ill-advised rehash. Revenge, one character says, is a dish best served cold. Ideas, for sure, aren’t best served stale. Race 2 moves at a fair clip and is packed with explosions, stunts and chases that might be crowd-pleasing. The trouble is that the narrative is too breathless for its own good. Is Race 2 on your mind? Get rid of it pronto. This is a wreck of a movie strictly for action junkies who might be looking for a feverish two-and-a-half-hour ride that is far more giddy than heady.

Ratings:--  Review By: Komal Nahta  Site: ETC
The screenplay is of the kind which makes the drama unbelievable, long and boring. Actually, the excitement typical of a thriller is missing in the film because of the many giveaways and several unbelievable, very convenient and even ridiculous twists and turns. On the whole, Race 2 is not as entertaining as it should’ve been. Its biggest minus point is that it does not thrill and shock and it is too lengthy. Given its high cost (approximately Rs. 90 crore plus), the film is poised to be a losing fare.

Ratings:3.5/5  Review By: Prasanna Zore  Site: Rediff
Tightly done action sequences, lots of glamour and one liners that cater to the classes and the masses is what makes Race 2 worth a watch. While the ensemble cast has done a super job of making a gripping thriller -- would call it a thriller rather than a suspense-thriller because the suspense is very predictable -- after a long time in Bollywood, the climax and music are the two sore points of the movie.One must then watch Race 2 for Saif, who with his polished dialogue deliveries and smart one-liners, Abraham, who has played a scheming businessman with aplomb and of course for all the three ravishing ladies who also know how to act.

Ratings:1.5/5  Review By: Shubhra Gupta  Site: Indian express
Five years later, we have a sequel, and it's all so been there-seen that-so what, that 'Race 2' just passes in front of our eyes without registering.Race 2' looks exactly like 'Race'. Which may have been intentional because plush locations and pretty playthings and buff men are very much Abbas Mustan trademarks. But all it does is cause a dismally same-same feeling. So much so that the new characters start feeling old within a few frames. Even the plot, which has a one-line pitch, Ranveer out to avenge the death of the love of his life, becomes subservient to the larger cause of looking glossy.

Ratings:2.5/5  Review By: Ananya Bhattacharya  Site: Zee News
The film is defined by its well defined and crazy action sequences – and a lot of it. Shiraz Ahmed’s story doesn’t come across as the most defining feature of the film: blame the excessive action for that. The film is left open-ended, and – I can bet anything on this – there’s a sequel to this one coming up soon. The story isn’t able to keep one glued to the screen: your attention sways from not-enjoyable to boring several times. In all, ‘Race 2’ is a grand display of money. The adrenaline-pumping action is the plus point of the film, but too much of that does no good to it. Two and a half stars from me for this Friday’s ‘expensive’ release.

Race 2  Tweet Review 

Ratings:--  Review By: Rohit Vats  Site: IBNLive
Race2 is so high on style that no character is ready to talk normally in the film. Good amount of energy has been spent on introducing the characters. But then this is needed in a film like Race2. Sleek characters, smart one liners and a very stylish Saif Ali Khan. Race2 franchise seems satisfactory.People wear sunglasses in dark rooms in Abbas-Mustan's films. Basically this was necessary to get a role in Race2. Race2 is more stylised than Race but with less thrilling moments. Too much dependence on style hampers its chances. Race2 can be a good watch for people who like Hollywood ishtyle heist films but would be an average watch for others. The second half is dragged and the climax is not very convincing. Race2 can be a good watch for people who like Hollywood ishtyle heist films but would be an average watch for others.

Race 2  Review by Other Critics

Ratings:1.5/5  Review By: Roshni Devi  Site: Koimoi
What’s Good: The stylish direction; the music. What’s Bad: The dreary twist-after-twist; the acting; logic flies away like the car out of an airplane. Loo break: Anytime. Watch or Not?: If Abbas-Mustan’s thrillers still excite you, then you’ll definitely like Race 2. Watch Race 2 only if you want to sit through two-and-a-half hours of no-brainer twists, compensated only by the booty show on screen.

Ratings:3/5  Review By: Rubina Ahmed  Site: FirstPost
Race 2 is shot beautifully, with a crisp edit and has all the action you’d want and more — be it street fighting with John Abraham’s abs for the win, a one night stand, car chases and explosions or a mile high fight club sequence which defies all logic, but still works, big time! At some point in the film, Deepika says “I can recognize that money making expression anywhere” and to that I’d say, Abbas Mustan have a big money maker on their hands with Race 2.

On many levels, a movie that’s all fluff and no stuff can be quite exhausting. And, ‘Race2’ is just that. It’s just a pompous wannabe-thriller that is devoid of any logic. It’s a race, we are told, on numerous occasions, by the two leading heroes and their two gorgeous sidekicks, almost trying to justify why they’ve taken two-hours-and-thirty-minutes of our lives. Yet, there’s never a real sense of what they are racing for. Time, money, babes, or cars? While its predecessor, the original ‘Race’, had shown some promise and glimpse of a good plot, ‘Race2’ steers away from any such attempts, and instead focuses on good looks and charm. On the whole, this is just a lazy sequel of a famed potboiler that can be watched at home… on a (borrowed) DVD.

    7. Race 2 is better than dabangg 2, rowdy rathore, khiladi 786, but is not that good. Salman Khan is one of the overrated and worst actors of bollywood, but in my opinion Akshay Kumar is way better. He entertains the masses with movies like rowdy rathore, khiladi 786, housefull2 etc and also does quality cinema in the movies such as Oh my god and Special 26.

  10. The biggest problem with a sequel is that it is often competed with its prequel. And rightly so, when the story, screenplay, dialogues consistently remind you of the prequel.

    Race 2 suffers from this same comparison and appears better in bits and pieces. It has more style, glamour(Deepika would bowl you off, truly), betrayals and action packed sequences. The film keeps your grey cells engaged in order to anticipate the next suspense. However, a week second half thwarts the foundation laid by the first. Among the cast, Deepika is fab with her glam and Anil with his fruits and NUT(Amisha) is pathetic.

    PS: If 'Race is not on your mind', then Race 2 would definitely be in your hearts else it appears as the same old Race on new tracks.

  23. Race 2: A true sequel,not just adding a one to the name. Directed by the duo Abbas-Mastan,another name of thriller and surprise and he follows his same old gimmicks here.Even at some point of time you will have a feeling of Déjà vu here.Nevertheless, first half starts with a BANGGG(with a blast) and it keeps you guessing right till the interval point.The high Octane Action and Who's With Whom sequences will keep you hooked to the screen right through the 1st half.The thing that disappoints you here is the Curse Of The Second Half(you can't help it).With too many predictable plots,a heist on which the whole movie depends being copied from National Treasure and so many loop holes really spoils the whole story going forward.
    The only actor who keeps you connected with his character,Arman Mallick is John Abraham.His 'What Next','Nothing comes in between business'and 'as a wrestler' performance really impresses you.He makes his presence felt throughout the movie.And the one who disappoints is none other than Saif Ali Khan with his 420 volt look throughout the movie.It was a 'okayish' kind of performance by him.Every other actor is busy making a copycat of themselves from the previous ones they have done.There isn't much to talk bout the music.Some catchy portions of Beintehaan and Allah Duhai Hai leaves you with nothing but the background score is pretty good considering it's genre.The only thing that give pillars to Race 2 is it's 1st half,action sequences,good cinematography and it's what next plot.
    I'm going with *** 3stars for Race 2.This movie could have done wonders in its genre.Unfortunately it didn't.

  24. My review: 2.5 stars!
    Race 2 isnt your edge of the seat thriller, but sure it keeps you engrossed in parts.. The scenes are shot exquisitely at beautiful landscapes. The styling is good..
    Saif seems to have stealt the show. The same goes for deepika.. The first half keeps you thinking, who will double cross whom. its interesting.. Its the second half that lets you down with the predicatble twists and turns and a rather cliched ending.. Its certainly not as good as the first premise but nevertheless watchable fare!
    So grab a popcorn and have a good ride of 3 hours!

  25. The movie is predictable. The plot is same as the original. Everyone trying to ditch the other. So here you can predict the every move of the characters unlike the RACE 1 where every scene had twist and turns and you cant really predict who is who. Songs are also not good as the original except " Lat Lag gayee" Movie belongs to Saif Ali Khan and he has justified his role. All the hot babes has nothing to do great unlike Bips and Kat in the original... Anil adds the humor to the plot...Technically movie is good and is of one time watch
