A Film to be Proud Of
10 September 2016 | by tenkanSee all my reviews

Not only was I satisfied with the movie, I was also satisfied with the reaction the audience gave after it ended...gleeful applause!

This film, although based on the founding of Islam, is one that the whole world can learn from and appreciate. A story of identity, struggle and equality.

Cinematography, animation, voice acting, script writing, plot and so much more were truly astounding. I'm very proud for those who worked on this.

Not only was the choice of characters to present wise, including the likes of Abu Bakr Sṣ-Ṣiddīq and Hamza, but the way in which they were presented, portraying them in their appropriate roles.

I wish the film had been longer, but all good things come to an end, as the film hadn't portrayed all the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as I had wished. However, less can be more, as the focus on the presented characters was appropriate.

My one complaint was the movie's end credits. I would have preferred a more soothing soundtrack instead of Akon, as the soundtrack for the film itself proved to be brilliant.

In conclusion, I'd gladly purchase this masterpiece on Blu-ray to watch it over and over again.

Alhamdulilah.
