Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
A movie that stands with the best prison thrillers from any country; a film that vividly illustrates the connection between prison and the violent, radical form of Islam that keeps much of Europe on edge.
This movie had nothing to do with Islam except in a limited context as a dominant cultural group. pls look again. btw im a cristian

Thanks alan b., I just wanted to post the same. Besides, I'm German and I'm nowhere 'on edge', but to each his own fears...

I agree--there does not seem to be any correlation with the film and radical Islam. We are treated to the French version of airport security, though, but curiously it's more of a commentary on Malik's repeated humiliations at being strip searched in prison.

Sounds like Roger has allowed his own prejudices, fears and beliefs form an overly farcical take on the film.
I would have expected a more neutral non pre-meditated stance on such source material, but all reviewers, professional or not, are only human at the end of the day.
I would say that this review only adds to exemplify this growing stem of fearmongering, racially motivated propaganda aimed at Muslims that seems to be creeping over many.
The truth is, the Muslim minorities depicted within this film (and at large) pose only a similar threat of violence as any other impoverished or socially economically deprived minority, irrespective of the race or religion.

Connection with Islam? Where? I must have seen the wrong movie. The Prophet has nothing to do with Islam or religion. Rather, it exposes prison dynamics. Does the critic claim it is related to Islam because the main character is French-Algerian? Please let's not get carried away by absurd stereotypes...

Roger -- did you watch the same movie as I did? What radical form of Islam are you talking about?
