Islamic Neoliberal propaganda from.. Sweden??
30 March 2017 | by greatdeceivahSee all my reviews

Having dabbled in filmmaking myself, i will not make any disparaging comments about the 3d production of this movie. So, yes the animation is clunky and far from perfect, but what do you expect from an independent film with a low budget?

The main issues i have with this movie are the silly plot and the characters, and the political propaganda embedded within, something that no amount of 3d effects and fancy production can fix. Let's start with the director, Tarik Saleh, a Swede of Egyptian descent,who may or may not be a practicing Muslim, but he certainly is of middle eastern descend and (for obvious reasons) a fan of multiculturalism.

Why does this matter, you ask? Well let's run through the never- ending neoliberal and socialist stereotypes portrayed in this movie:

01 - the white male protagonist and his voice are both portrayed as weaklings, indecisive, insecure and impotent losers.

02 - The white protagonist has a tattooed, useless, black girlfriend, a caricature of a woman, as if this was normal in Sweden.. so yes Swedish men.. it is perfectly normal to mix races, to think otherwise you would be a .. RACIST!!! LOL

03 - Apparently in the future, those evil racist Swedes will run TV shows, where poor Muslim refugees have to compete to stay there.. oh yes, those poor big eyed refugees, so innocent and defenseless, one can only hope the future will be so kind because now, most of the Muslim "rapefugees" who have invaded Sweden thanks to the complicity of the Marxist neoliberal Swedish government, are too busy living on welfare, burning cars and throwing hand grenades converting parts of a once peaceful, low-crime country into Muslim- only infested, crime ridden ghettos. Poor critters.

05 - The rest of the characters are just silly caricatures, including Asian military men, the evil white millionaire and the obligatory manipulative blonde white woman, because we all know that most white people are evil.

06 - Capitalism and corporations are all evil, but no mention of the government of course, because we all know Sweden is a socialist country and i am sure Tarik didn't want to upset his multicultural masters.

I won't go into details, but the plot of this movie is just so silly, that one has to wonder how this movie got made at all.. no wonder the voice acting on this stupid movie is so inane and lifeless.. as if the actors reading the script just could not believe the idiocy they were reciting.. i am sure they were just doing it for the money.
