Best Egyptian action movie ever made !!

Author: tifa_ronaldo from Cairo, Egypt

I went to see this movie 3 times, and i gotta tell you; it was breathtaking, the acting, the direction, the script and all the cast was marvelous in this film. I am a huge fan of Sheriff Arafa's works he's my favorite director but i was a little disappointed by his work lately for the last 7 years, u know he made some pointless comedy movies and ended it up with the big disappointment 7ALIM, but now he made it up for his fans with this masterpiece, he truly made us live the movie entirely. Ahmed El Sakka is known as one of the best actors of his generation, but after this performance i can say that he owns them all. I highly recommend this movie to u all, YOU WILL NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.

A True Story

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I just watched this movie,, it's really a great one,, on of the best Egyptian movie. The actors, story and direction are all fine.

This movie should consider in (Biography) section,, as it tells a true story. The true story about a person named (Ezzat Ali Hanfy) in a village called (El-Nekhila) in Assuit, Egypt.

Most of the events in the movie actually happened in the real life,,, Ezzat Hanfy (Mansour in the movie) was really a big trouble for the police in Egypt although at sometimes he was helping the police in capturing the terrorists in Assuit in 1990,, and the government did supply him with weapons at this time.

In actual life Ezzat Hanfy was captured by the police at 2004 after a big war between them and his gang and had been executed in Alex at 2006.

It's really good

Author: Taha Al-Akshar from Egypt

yesterday i watched the movie, it was pretty good, almost 150 minutes long and i guess u'll never get bored, very fast actions, don't expect what's gonna happen because it'll not. I believed that there are some of these people live around, and how does the government deal with those people, Very powerful criminals who have there own judgment and there own rules, anyway, i hope you'll enjoy the crime-action-drama movie which is very well produced and directed and for the first time i can see Elsakka acting very well. my only comment about the dressings of Hend Sabry, it looks Scottish rather than Saeedy!! my only comment about the dressings of Hend Sabry, it looks Scottish rather than Saeedy!!
