Good effort but (9.*) ??!!
2 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

9.5 that's may be the most overrated movie ever. Calm down guys, it is not even close to half the quality of THE GODFATHER.

However, people who worked on the movie are really hard workers. The director was very good at the ending but at the 1st hour, he made a lot of flashbacks weren't necessary and soundtracks weren't suitable for the scenes. The ending soundtrack was really great. The Changing of the ending from the book was really cool. I loved the performance of Karim and Nelly. Khaled El Sawy was OK but i expected more.

It's a good step for the Egyptian Cinema and the graphic scenes surprised me but 9.5 !!!!!!!!!!!!
