Horrible, must be a lot of hype behind this movie.
Not sure why a studio would hype a film that is boring, poorly made and not about anything, glad my date bought the tickets. The acting and directing were especially poor, which was a surprise, Danny Glover is one of my all-time favorites.
Just because a movie is bad does not mean it had a small budget, I doubt this movie had a tiny budget, but it's played off that way to compensate for how bad it is.
If you are looking for a story about the Muslim experience I would recommend reading "Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention", you can probably buy it for the money you would waste if you bought tickets to this crap.
