Best Film I've Seen This Year
21 September 2020 | by SquikpeepSee all my reviews

I can't help but laugh at some of these user reviews that call the film low budget. I was in the industry for over ten years as a location scout. This film has at least 40 to 50 locations. That's not cheap. It was obviously filmed in Jordan. Their currency is stronger than the US's. They used hotels, airports, helicopters, etc and had a ton of international actors and actresses. So my estimate is around $15million and that's not low budget.

Now onto the film. I'll keep it short and sweet. It's my favorite film of the year. I was on the edge of my seat from the first scene. There was nothing obvious about it. I adored the cast, specifically the top billed cast (Caviezel, Karvan, Ozsan, Savante), I thought the writing was very smart, and I loved the way it was shot. 10/10 from me.
