In the "Blending In" scene in the French café, Fareed pours champagne for Omar and Samir. Samir protests that the champagne is "halal" when he should have said the opposite Arabic term, "haram." In Arabic, halal means something that is permissible unless prohibited by religious law. Samir should have said the champagne was "haram," meaning it is forbidden or sinful, when he was protesting to Fareed. See more »

I was offered a ticket to a screener last Wednesday, and when I heard Don Cheatle was in it, couldn't pass it by. I am not a huge fan of action/suspense/spy movies, but this one was a cut above the normal. It was more intelligent, and delved a bit into motivations, beliefs, etc. of terrorists. I went into the movie cold, with no idea of the plot, and I recommend that. Most write ups I have read give away too much of the twists in the plot, which I was glad I didn't know beforehand. Don Cheatle was excellent, and so was Saïd Taghmaoui. It was also refreshing to see Hollywood recognizing the breadth of Muslim philosophy for once!
