"We should have resisted Saddam"
3 April 2020 | by jamalking15See all my reviews

The movie was interesting from the very start. Showing how eager the Iraqis were to be free of the terrible reign of Sadaam Hussein. The movie also drew attention to the numerous factions in Iraqi society fighting over power and control of neighborhoods in Iraq that made peace so difficult. A few things I felt missed the mark: Too much reliance on Moroccan culture and not enough Iraqi influence. The actors shook theirvheads the wrong way for yes and no. The lack of InshaAllah in the movie. In Iraqi society of the time , instead that's life etc. A lot of blame for problems was put on Private Security firms, who weren't perfect, but they weren't as corrupt as portrayed. The film often used the term mercenary over and over. The best part of the film showed Iraqis wishing they had done something to resist Sadaam' regime before the liberation was necessary.

Otherwise great entertainment and a god stab at trying to reflect the lives of Iraqis after Sadaam.
