This is mostly a COMMERCIAL for his PR
30 June 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This is movie is a PR effort helping him to win Nobel Peace Prize. He was ousted by his own people in 3 years like Hosni Mubarak and Gazzafi.

His total presidency was a drama filled lies and lies. I am sure we westerners are more civilized than a third world countries.

I doubt any ethical person will buy a ticket for this movie when this movie was funded secretly from tax payers money. Maldives is a very small country with limited resources and its ousted president want to become a Hollywood celebrity. I see no difference than the Saudi Royal Family and Him.

No offense to his loyal supporters.
