The Message Reviews
I am Armenian but Lived in a country were the majority were Muslims, then I grow up in a country like Denmark where the majority were Athesits, so I had the chance few had of living with different cultures and beliefs, this story about Islam is a mirror of how the real muslims are, they aren't bad people, they are naturally kind and mostly victims, if a few of them like 5% of them (50 or 60 Mil) from the 1.5 Bil Muslim in the world have some radical ideas we can't judge them all. This movie is true to the history and beginings of Islam that I grow up hearing from my friends when I was a child.
Very good movie. I will let me 2 daughters see it in a few years.
Arabic version is even better
Arabic version is more accurate but the English version was made to be more accessible to a Western audience.
Well a worth a look for anyone interested in learning more about the history of one of the world's great religions.
It's amazing that filmographies of the great actor Anthony Quinn often ignore this, arguably his masterpiece. Among great movies and Hollywood productions this is perhaps the most ignored gem of all.
Buy it, watch it, show it to your friends; The Message is without doubt one of the best movies of the 20th century.
A Must watch film for non-Muslims, to understand Islam's real message, especially in todays era, when the portrayal of Islam, is so negatively depicted in the West. Islam is, what is purely depicted in shape of this film.
This film shows perfect art-direction, and the music score of the film by Maurice Jarre, is pure piece of meditation, which was nominated for Academy Award for Best Original-Music-Score.
official story of Islam exactly how it is. i loved this movie,
outstanding superb movie. A masterpiece of religious cinema, The acting
is fantastic, the music is good (won an academy award), and the
cinematography, filmed in Morocco and Libya, is beautiful. Costumes are
cool, and there's a few scenes with a set of ancient bagpipes for you
Celtic history buffs. superb movie. epic. the fact that this is the
only substantial film about Mohammed and Islam makes Akkad's film
worthwhile viewing. must watch. love it.... This is the true story for Porphet Muhamed. One of the most important stories that all people must see it. This is the truth of isalm. Thanks to the director Moustapha Akkad and God bless his soul. (note the arabic version was better than the english one)
