The terrorists are in danger. They just don’t know it yet!
A terrorist group takes a lot of people as hostages in a shopping mall. They want the Indian government to release a terrorist leader that they have in their custody. What the terrorists don’t know is that there is an Indian special agent in the shopping mall, and he isn’t happy if the Indian government releases the terrorist leader. He won’t have any of that! He’s the man with the plan!
Beast is an action-comedy that has a crazy opening sequence that fans of older Hong Kong movies will be excited to see. The action choreography is excellent, and it’s easy to see what’s going on during the action scenes. That’s so important!
But the movie is too long, and the humor isn’t that funny. I hated the man who talked and talked. He isn’t funny, and they should have cut out many of the scenes where he talks a lot of nonsense. You are not funny, man! Shut up!
The protagonist played by Thalapathy Vijay, is always great and very charismatic. His character is like a superhero. He’s unstoppable, and the villains don’t stand a chance when he attacks them. So there’s no suspense in this movie as the antagonist is a weak man. There’s no climax here when he stands face to face with the King of hair, Thalapathy Vijay.
The score is great, but there are two songs and dance numbers here that stink! The songs are so cheesy, and I wanted to puke! Thank God the last song and dance number is right after the end credits.
If Beast had a runtime of 100 minutes, the movie would have been so much better. It has nothing new to offer, but the opening action sequence is fantastic! The Hong Kong movie industry is dead, but who cares when the Indian movie industry can deliver much of the same explosiveness that we experienced in the Hong Kong movies from the 80s and 90s!
