Decent effort for a production that looked like it operated on a limited budget. My main problem was that for the first 2/3 of the flick, I was being sold a pretty decent character story, which ended up with a bunch of action sequences. Not that they were bad (though the gunfight at the end was confusing) but it was like they kind of jumped over some decent story just so they could shoot off guns and blow up stuff.
The movie is half in Farsi (Persian) and half in English, but it is subtitled where necessary, so it isn't that confusing. It gets slow at times, but overall, it is worth watching. It ain't Chinatown, but I have seen worse. There are a couple of the actors who should invest their checks in some lessons, but aside from that it does show some flashes, as I said.
I don't know if I would pay to see it again, but I have to admit there were things about the movie that stood out when I left, and I can't say that about a lot of movies I have seen that were made for a lot more money.
