Not the truth
2 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

I found interesting the comparison of how "extremist" Islam and "peaceful" Islam is portrayed here and how an eastern religion functions in a western country. I feel that the movie is bias in its portrayal of what Islam is truly about through attempting to align this religion closely with Christianity and suggest it is respectful and peaceful. I understand what the film writer/director is trying to do but I don't agree with the end message. Also noted that this is also a low budget movie and should be rated a M where it doesn't actually have a rating for some reason? Why did it win awards? Is this because we are so PC in the world today and embrace everything as truth?
