they don't know how Syria looks like !!!, 27 April 2013
Author: Wael Yakti from Germany

I'm 100 % Syrian ... I will only focus about the things which should people consider before making a movie about a country they do not know !

I would like to send a message to the guys who produced this film telling them to learn more about the country before making a movie about it .

The only true thing is that taxis are yellow ... yes that is true while everything else is not !

- extras ( combers ) are totally foreigners !!! all police ,army and ppl in the street lake the Syrian face !! no one of them even has it !! the Canadian guy who works in the embassy has a face which is more Syrian than 90% of people appeared in the movie

- the language used by the " native speaker " has nothing to do with any of the Syrian accents !!! to me it was like an Indian accent guy representing King Richard in a movie !

- the way people dress is totally not Syrian ... it is more like north Africa ( Egypt , lybia , Morocco , etc )

- the way the secret police acts is totally lame , they can get anything they want much easier than appears in the movie !

- the way the police and the army dress is 100% wrong

- there are many other details which are totally making this movie week , like the Idea of he is standing in front of the ministry of defense waiting for something ( no one is allowed to sit there ) .. and a colonel has a different rank shape on his shoulder !

- plants species in the streets are not the ones u see there !!

- the atmosphere of the hotel he is in is typical Egyptian ( except one chair )

there are many points to be mentioned ... I think if they asked one only one Syrian about such things they would have improved their work much more !!
