Brilliantly Made !!
3 July 2009 | by (Cairo, Egypt) – See all my reviews

I was totally shocked when i watched the movie, i was like, OH MY GOD, is that an Egyptian movie ?! People who went to watch it before i did, kept telling me that it sucks, but actually it made me wanna see it more, and i did, and i loved it. The audience is criticizing this movie so bad saying that it hasn't a good story, u know what they're not totally mistaken in my opinion. i mean the story is not bad at all, and it's not that great, but u don't have to come up with a great story to have a great movie. Millions of other factors play a big role in judging a movie. For me the acting was superb, Mahmoud Abdel Aziz is back to his best, though i didn't like his overdid religious jokes in the movie, Ahmed Elsakka was Brilliant as he is LATELY, Hend Sabry once more proves that she's the best Arabian actress nowadays, and last but not least Amr Waked who was the biggest surprise as he did put in an incredible performance and the most reliable one. The direction by Marawan Hamed was exactly what he needed to do after his Masterpiece, YACOUBIAN BUILDING, he truly made us live the movie entirely, he did an amazing job shooting the fights, the best in the Egyptian history.

IT IS BLOODY LIKE HELL, IF U R NOT INTO THESE KINDA MOVIES U MAY NOT LIKE IT, BUT I REALLY THINK IT IS WORTH WATCHING.
