The state religion of Saudi Arabia is Wahhabism; the most extreme form of Islamism by witch 9/11 is justified. In this film, a terrorist bombing victim says about 9/11; "Do you know what the most chilling aspect about this whole business is? It's that the West still has not realized that the worst is yet to come."

Non sto qui a discutere sul punto di vista del regista nei confronti dell'Islam e delle civilt musulmane, penso sia stato gi bersagliato abbastanza, ma questo lavoro di Martinelli veramente un'immondizia che non sta n in cielo n in terra. Anche se lo si dovesse guardare da una prospettiva xenofoba, il film non convincerebbe nemmeno gli estremisti pi accaniti. Le tesi del "protagonista" (il presunto professore universitario invalido) sul "terrorismo islamico", sono affrontate con tanto di quel qualunquismo segregazionista, che non starebbero in piedi neanche con una sceneggiatura iper-arguta. Gli stessi dialoghi sembrano usciti da un programmino televisivo spazzatura di quart'ordine, e, fondamentalmente, nei contenuti, non vanno a parare da nessuna parte (e lo stesso vale per il soggetto e la trama...). Aggiungetegli anche degli scontri a fuoco a dir poco irrazionali nella messa in scena (per non parlare dell'aggressione domestica, con tanto di "fuga" fra le travi dell'appartamento... scena fastidiosamente patetica), delle inquadrature che ricordano le tristissime pubblicit delle automobili, e degli effetti speciali sgraziati e grossolani, e vi sarete fatti un'idea de "Il Mercante di Pietre".

This movie is just so weak, although it makes some very valid statements about islam - and I liked this political non-correctness.

En glimrende og skarp kommentar til konflikten mellem kristenhed og islam. Hvor langt vil Vesten gå? Hvor langt vil fundamentalisterne gå? Det er dog en skam at det er en lavbudgetfilm, for den er faktisk flot, uforudsigelig og ret spændende.

Eeerr, emm, huh huh, mmm....Yeah and no. Story was good and thats pretty much it as a pro. ....the cons you ask?... well, For a modern day movie the visuals were a little 1960's and the acting very B...Nobody up for a oscar in this one. ...the profussly perspiring gynstic "half man" brought a kinda immature smerk to my boat-race though. hehe. Kietel looks like hes a cronic sun dome asmatic straight outa 1970's porn set. ...kinda looked like my plant 'henry' when a come back from a 3 week vacation.....I could of sworn i watered him...

The relatively catchy and very up-to-date
storyline is spoiled by how extremely the
movie is stretched out and by how easily
the female character was persuaded.
Nice scenery and atmosphere anyway...

Worst film I have EVER SEEN.

I love this movie because it's poetic and cruel, all and nothing, life and death. Another chance to innocence...

some of the worst acting ever. somali hitmen in italy? i think the high ratings on netflix etc were because the lead is an amputee and they love showing his stumps, and because the subject matter is hot now.

Story was weak, acting was worse. Interesting filmography with zazzy scene transistions, but not enough to impress.

Noe veldig bra skuespill, og noe veldig dårlig skuespill! Skjønte hva som kom til å skje på slutten, så var ikke så spennende.. Verdt å se? Tja, kanskje..

Virkelig bra "rolig" terroristfilm, med en noe uventet avslutning. En film som bare vokser og vokser...
