Critic Reviews for The Green Prince

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (18)

It's a movie that raises as many questions as it addresses, and which never quite convincingly answers even the most pressing one: Just what made the son of a radical Palestinian-liberation leader go to work as an Israeli spy?

The movie's empty pizzazz is especially irritating because the story would have been compelling without any embellishment.

It's a harrowing tale of intrigue and betrayal, but also one of a friendship that survives despite extraordinary circumstances.

This a film that leaves many unanswered questions, but it's nonetheless satisfying, because it resonates emotionally and offers a ray of hope that the human spirit has the ability to trump entrenched political perspectives.

Audience Reviews for The Green Prince

An amazing story about two amazing human beings. If this film doesn't restore your faith in humanity then nothing will.

7/11/15 Netflix A story of friendship and courage first and politics and spycraft secondly. Hopefully, Mosab's life in the US is one of peace and safety. It is sad that he has lost his family by his actions but encouraging that two individuals tried to solve the issue through peaceful means as opposed to hate and violence. A lesson in there for everyone.

A fascinating and suspenseful documentary that tells an almost unbelievable story of a man who betrayed his own culture for what he believed in and two people from different backgrounds who became unexpected friends as they got caught in the eye of an everlasting storm.
