A Very Watchable espionage
15 September 2018 | by egela-juventusSee all my reviews

Surprisingly A Very Good Movie in That Genre by Netflix , I Started The movie with no High Hopes At All. But Seeing The Solid Structure Set By The Writer David Arata Who Has Previously Earned My Respect with " Children Of Men & Spy Game", I Really Got Engaged in The Movie. Notably The Use Of peccable Arabic Accent , characterization of Famous figures As Sadat& Nasser could have been an Turn Off for me , but The moderate Reasonable juggling of the Director between Drama and History of Such a Tense Period in The middle East History is efficacious. As An Egyptian , I Know The movie might get a backlash by Fellows' Accusations of Being untrue and historically inaccurate , But I Think film served both Sides Justice by Showing Them Trying To reach for peace in every Step. Even If I Really Believed that the Asharf Mawran Just Sold His Country for Money.
