This movie symbolizes heroism , revenge , history, vanity, and a lot more.It has a great cast , Anthony at his best and reed proving that he can make a great bad guy.The story is just wonderfully rich with a lot of events , it's a true story about an Arabic Muslim hero who fought against the Italian's occupation of Libya with a great bravery and intelligence.the production is amazing , it's a really big budget movie that had all the authenticity of that period.And last but not least the director Mr. Akkad who did an mazing job on this movie.
All i can say is that it's a must see and it's on my top 10 movies of all time.
