Race 3 Review: The Race franchise is known for its excessively stylized characters and high-octane action. These films highlight expensive cars and sophisticated sets, they have everything for fans of action movies and James Bond. "Race 3" puts the pedal on the metal when it comes to making elegant statements. But as he advances in style, the substance is left in a cloud of dust.
This film tells the story of a rich family that has a lot of double ties and intrigues, as you would expect from a film from this franchise. The Singh family performs high stakes hold up, where they have to steal a hard drive from a bank, so the setup seems to have a lot of thrills and action. But the generous dose of action never results in serious sensations because the story is so fragile. To say that the movie has a thin patch of the wafer is a euphemism. Unlike the action, the script lacks punch because the story does not engage the viewer at all. The trailer of the movie has triggered a multitude of memes on social media and when you watch the movie, you realize there are more dialogues like: "Our business is our business, none of your business" and you ask what the writers have in mind.
What redeems the thin tissue plot is the action sequences bigger than life. You have it all - car accidents, explosions, fighting, cat fights and wingsuit diving. Yes, there is a lot of smoke and fire, but no real steam - in history or performance. Most action scenes are in slo-mo, intended to accentuate drama and thrills, but it often ends up making the scene a tedious watch. The best-directed parts of the film are the songs, which look like meticulously crafted music videos. The film is mounted on a sumptuous canvas and shot on beautiful places, but none of this holds your attention for more than a few minutes. It's a visual pleasure to see a series of supercars in action, glamorous girls kicking and punching, and of course, fans will appreciate the sight of Salman Khan and Bobby Deol ripping off their well-greased and chiseled shirts.
There is a star cast so fans have plenty of time to cheer on their favorite stars. Salman Khan leads the pack with the main role, and although he is great with action and style, the character has very little depth. Anil Kapoor plays with ease the father figure of the Singh family. Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah are also at their best. Jacqueline Fernandez and Saqib Saleem are also fantastic. 'Race 3' will work for Salman fans, while Bhai will go above and beyond.
But for all its great moments, 'Race 3' does not work with the sense of suspense and intrigue that has made previous masala movies of the franchise a guilty pleasure. While the film wants to keep you guessing who will finish the race first, you wonder when you will cross the finish line.
