COMMANDO 3 - A well-intentioned but below average attempt featuring two exceptional performers, who sadly are not getting a well-executed film they truly deserve. (Review by Bobby Sing)

Though the second part of the series didn’t get any high ratings by the critics, it still comes up with a third one, which actually shows that the sequel must have resulted in some returns to the makers in one way or the other. And if a certain section of viewers loved watching COMMANDO 2, then they are sure going to find many similar elements in COMMANDO 3 too, may be in a higher dosage with much more intensity and gore. 
Hence the third part of the series can certainly be seen if heavy-duty action by Vidyut Jammwal without any guns or weapons, is the only thing you are interested in and the content of the film is not of any great importance at all. However, if a fine action-packed thriller with a strong story progression and content is what you are looking for (like myself) then COMMANDO 3 is yet another disappointing sequel of the series that has nothing more to offer other than a power-packed Jammwal and his amazing fighting skills.
The plot has a team yet again sent to avert a major terrorist attack and this time we have two girls in it as Adah Sharma and Angira Dhar showcasing their combat skills against the group headed by Gulshan Devaiah who tries his best to be a dark, barbaric character. The film begins with a typical Bollywood kind of sequence like any 80s B-grade film and the first half keeps focusing on mere action strongly justifying its title. Post intermission the writers desperately try to throw in some absurd twists and turns to keep the viewers invested, but miserably fail in their attempt resulting in an over-stretched unengaging drama. 
But at the same time, they do successfully add in some relevant angles in the storyline suiting the current political environment of the country with all noble intentions, which unfortunately remain predictable and repetitive. On the other hand, background score keeps trying to support the explosive action, at the cost of becoming loud and going overboard in some key sequences. 
Overall, since this franchise is specifically designed to present and promote Vidyut showcasing his self-performed stunts, COMMONDO 3 directed by Aditya Datt prominently does that and the actor makes the best of it too as seen in the franchise's previous two parts. Having said that, I still strongly feel Vidyut Jammval needs much better films than these and so does Gulshan Devaiah as the two deserving performers.
Rating: 1.5 + 0.5 / 5 (with the additional 0.5 for the noble intentions and the hard-worked stunts by the lead and the two girls)
