Goosebumps review: A rather boring movie with few good moments with Chan and an entertaining song. One time watch for family audience and Chan fans. Goosebumps? I am still searching for it. (2 / 5)
Kung Fu Yoga was named after the co-production of Indo-Chinese partnership. Of course there is a lot of Kung Fu, but wait a minute where is Yoga? You can’t see a bit of Yoga in it.
The movie was good as far as Jackie and the action scenes are concerned. Jackie Chan was excellent in his stunts and comic expressions. He hasn’t disappointed his fans and he brings in a surprise dance performance in the item song.
Apart from Jackie nothing works in the movie. Even Jackie Chan’s actions are restricted at times. The movie travels from China to India, a bit of Dubai for just one car chase scene. Too much of information are poured in the first 10 minutes of the movie which actually confuses the audience.
Few minutes into the movie just feels this is not going to be what it should be. The beginning doesn’t feel like a beginning, It just starts abruptly which indeed has driven out the excitement in watching the movie.
Sonu Sood who carries the Indian baddie role should have been a bit better. He doesn’t feel like a baddie at times. Disha Patani as Jackie’s lead is ok. Wearing some high valued ornaments, dresses with fur are the major contribution she delivers. The age old rope tricks, some floating tricks by sadhus might impress few (Does the movie really belongs to 2017?).
The item song which casts the entire cast was one of the few good moments in the movie. It was great and watching Chan dance was extremely pleasing. There are few good moments to wake the sleeping audience.
On the whole the movie is one time watch for family audience.
