‘Attack’ Review, Audience Response and Box-Office Collections

Published

on

The ‘Attack’ trailer exceeded expectations in more ways than one, with a fantastic blend of space age sci-fi components and slick action set against the backdrop of well-crafted and, more pertinently, believable VFX, as well as, of course, a brawny John Abraham doing what he does best – walloping bad guys to a cellulose. If cinema has proven us anything, it is that trailers may build astronomically high expectations just to be dashed in the real film. Furthermore, the fundamental character of a super-soldier, which John plays in ‘Attack‘, will be quite familiar to action addicts bred on a Hollywood staple diet, as it’s been constantly sold with varied levels of effectiveness in films like the Universal Soldier trilogy. The task of Lakshya Raj Anand’s breakout role is made all the more difficult by Marvel’s Captain America and Avengers tentpoles, Bloodshot, Outside the Wire, the Robocop trilogy, and etc.

What The Film Is About

Science and witchcraft, two of ‘Attack’s most pervasive elements, necessitate a willful and total believability. That’s something with which I can easily come to terms. Importantly, debuting director Lakshya Raj Anand keeps the rapidly hostage drama from being an all-out, terrifying assault on the emotions.
John Abraham, who also serves as one of the film’s directors, portrays a crippled Army Major who is awakened by a microchip and transformed into a super soldier with the mission of destroying India’s Parliament building. The primary actor is credited with writing the two-hour sci-fi thriller’s narrative.

Attack is undoubtedly full of nationalistic zeal, but it is delightfully free of the strident lamentations that come with the territory. Furthermore, the enemy country is never addressed, despite the fact that the terrorists’ names clearly indicate their ties to a certain hostile country.

The hero’s intended victim appears early enough in the movie for the conflict to take on epic proportions. The fire in the man’s belly propels him, and the computer chip on the nape of his neck gives him the strength to face the most terrifying of challenges.
Paul Verhoeven’s Robocop, a Hollywood thriller from 35 years ago, comes to mind. It was about a gravely injured Detroit cop who was transformed into a formidable cyborg. The wound inflicted on the Attack protagonist does not kill him, nor does it turn him into an uncaring automaton meant to confront violence with more violence.
