Story – the weakest level
Compared to the earlier movie, which one way or the other stored the viewers glued to the display screen with twists and turns, this one fails to maintain you hooked. Going by the title, the movie has neither homicide nor thriller.
Written by James Vanderbilt, the one-and-a-half hour-long drama is stuffed with pointless cliches. The primary plot of the movie appears predictable and jaded. The film is lazily written and exaggerated with a twist that appears foolish.
Directed by Jeremy Garelick, the movie although begins off on a promising observe and offers a way that one thing intriguing is undoubtedly on the best way however what you get in the end is a significant letdown. When in comparison with the primary half, this one feels farfetched.
The motion within the movie, particularly the climax sequence, is over-the-top. The writers have tried to salvage the plot with humour, however that falls flat.
Adam and Jennifer are the one good issues about this movie. The star couple, who has labored collectively previously are identified to be good mates off-screen and that interprets nicely on display screen. Their witty conversations are endearing and genuine.
The Indian marriage ceremony setup, Bollywood high-beat songs, Jennifer in Manish Malhotra’s lehenga—the whole lot appears good, however what addition does it deliver to the film? Effectively, nothing!
At one level, the movie and the plot are troublesome to digest, whether or not it is the climax sequence within the Eiffel Tower, dialogues, or fights. As you attain the tip, you’re feeling that each scene is loaded with additional drama.
Homicide Thriller 2 in the end appears loud, the writing is juvenile, and it takes away all of the enjoyable that Jennifer and Adam have been even making an attempt to deliver to a colorless script. The enjoyable a part of this movie vanishes very early, and all you might be left with is a chaotic plot that lacks the thrills. Watch it solely if you’re doing nothing this weekend. Homicide Thriller 2 is streaming on Netflix.
