Considering the extreme length of current commercial cinema, it comes a pleasant surprise to find a Bollywood movie that clocks in at a slim 105 minutes; probably due to the absence of songs, although it would be fun to see the makers try to stage an Indian dance routine aboard a speeding train.

Kill starts off fairly quietly but the introduction of a bunch of inbred malcontents, who spend plenty of time kicking dogs before learning the hard way that you don’t mess with an off-duty commando.

There follows 57 varieties of stabbings, gouging, shootings and stranglings amid copious quantities of bloodshed. The audience responded to all this with laughter, groans and applause with equal measure. Great fun if you like that sort of thing. @RichardChatten

Kill is in cinemas July 5 from Lionsgate UK
