Brutal and intense
7 April 2008 | by (Maastricht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Jamil is a guy who believes he must hate some people. Jamil lives by the laws of revenge and hatred. Jamil's way of solving problems is wrong, but he doesn't see it. Not until after the damage is done.

There are many films about hatred and revenge, but very few of them as intense and nauseating as this one. As the film moves on it presses itself as a lead weight onto its audience by using quick moving action scenes and lifelike encounters between people that are driven toward only one thing: eradication of the other party. It doesn't let go until the ending credits roll by and even then it takes time to get back to reality.

The credits for this intensity lay by the actors that portray their characters completely believable and the use of dark and big grained imagery.

The film is very violent, but not so much that it becomes over the top. The violence is a necessity given the theme of the film and only adds to it, it never breaks down any of its value.

The only tiny thing I have against it is the fact that it is a bit predictable, but maybe that is just picking nits - everyone with a bit of a healthy mind can see where things are going after they start the way they do here.
