An Action Hero Review: The film bustles with coiled energy every time Jaideep Ahlawat is on the screen as a toughie responding to a rough, ready and rustic notion of justice and self-worth.
The title is absolutely apt. The fugitive protagonist of An Action Hero is indeed 'an' action hero and not 'any' action hero. And the film isn't any old actioner. Writer-director Anirudh Iyer employs genre devices to create a movie that, in a rare cinematic osmosis, is at once visceral and cerebral.
