Excellent Independent Movie and Storyline
Saw "The Algerian" at its premiere, and the movie did not disappoint. Strong story line(s) that delve into the concepts of hate, indoctrination, perception, perspectives, culture, understanding and ultimately, redemption. The plot convergence toward the end is unique, with the protagonist's actions and morality colliding, leaving the viewer to wonder - is it possible that this may unfortunately not be a movie, in our post 9/11 and ultimately interconnected world? Good cast that work well together. The movie makes the viewer consider the definition of morals and ethics from a non-familiar lens, coupled with their potential dangerous pitfalls & consequences.
