The film's adverse media coverage hurt it more than the actual production. One media outlet claimed that Charlton Heston had been cast as Mohammad. Moustapha Akkad and Heston quickly issued a denial but the announcement caused an uproar in the Muslim world regardless. The resulting furor led to widespread protests and riots, notably in Pakistan, where several people were actually killed. See more »

I am Orthodox Christian, but I must acknowledge this masterpiece.
Allegedly, this film is historically precise, and if it really is, then there's no essential difference between Christianity and Islam. Trouble does not lie in opposition of two religions, it lies in existence of greedy, blood thirsty politicians who incite religious fanaticism and abuse basically peaceful religions to accomplish their political and economical goals.
Anyway, if you're not Muslim, you just have to put your prejudice aside (if you have any) and you'll enjoy this excellent piece of cinematography.
