Whether you read the novel or not, Go watch it, you'll be proud !
30 July 2014 | by abanobmoradSee all my reviews

Al-Feel Al-Azraq, I've not been so attracted by an Arabic movie that much (That I actually went to see it on the big screen) in ages ! And I didn't regret it ! :D Where to start ! Great scenario, not one unnecessary line. Karim Abdel Aziz at the highest peak of his career, Khaled El Sawy with a literally LEGENDARY performance ! Soundtrack, montage, editing, effects, CGI, filming, directing...all are so professional, so PERFECT...that you'll enjoy every scene so much that you won't want it to end, because the picture is SO beautiful ! Even if nothing important is going on during the scene, and trust me, there's something important going on in every scene, the movie is very intense, very highly detailed ! Story line will keep consuming all your attention till the very end. About the ending, it won't match with every taste (biggest weak point in the movie.) That's why I gave it a 9/10. But hell, I'm so proud that this project is 100%ly Egyptian ! Restored the hope. :)

I really missed that kinda Shutter-Island feeling ! Go watch it !
