The action is thrilling, gorgeously shot, and endlessly exciting. A beautiful escape with brains and balls to spare in equal measure.

I think this is what happened: Scriptwriter wanted to make movie around Dharmender, watched his earlier movies and copied some to come up with this boxing story, thought should do some homework and so actually put on the tape of "The Grand History of Boxing," noticed (before getting bored and dozing off) journeymen becoming heavyweight champions, so pulled in the Bollywood journeyman Bobby Deol himself, sprinkled some Sunny Deol too to make a formula Bollywood family movie... and voila! One and half stars.

Richard R (fr) wrote: Although the 2003 remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre was excellently done, this unnecessary prequel purely relies on gore and gross-out horror than actual chills and scares. While it is done effectively and in horrific fashion; with a horrible meal scene reminiscent of the original film, the very fact that it is a horror prequel set in the same place means that you know the outcome before the end is even near. So there's nothing to surprise, nothing to essentially scare and once you reach the end you're that desensitised to gore that there's nothing more in it.

If you cut your eyeball out and rinse it under the tap you gain the ability to shoot lasers! Ya know what? I wanna live forever. I haven't talked this much in years!
David F (it) wrote: Sub-par Fellini is still better than the finest work of many lesser directors. An amazing opening sequence that sets up like an old newsreel unfolds into a sort of 'Grand Hotel' at sea, with the usual Fellini assortment of beauties and grotesques introduced and explained by an Italian speaking Freddie Jones (quite disconcerting). Some interesting set pieces make it worthwhile (the lovesick rhino suspended in air, the operatic competition in the engine room), but Fellini ends up repeating himself with the big reveal of the ship set and the film crew, hammering home the whole 'life is a stage' metaphor once again.

Even though I found the animation is a bit lacking when it comes to the human characters, there is some really fun stuff contained within this film. This includes some pretty intense action. Features the voices of Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) as "Skull" and Steve Buscemi as "Nebbercracker" just to name a couple cool characters.
