"The Green Prince" is a dramatized documentary based on Yousef's autobiography, "Son of Hamas." And, while I don't particularly care for reenactments, I do believe Israeli filmmaker Nadav Schirman did an excellent job of bringing Yousef's story to film.

Though no film really has a hope of untangling the complexities of the conflict, this succeeds in putting a human face on them.

Together with artfully filmed re-enactments creepily evoking his jail terms and interrogations, they retrace the route he took in his transformation from young Arab activist to political conspirator.
December 8, 2014
Sketchy, overly simplistic, and invested to a rather tasteless extent in the Hollywood-friendly thrills and spills of its story.

Unfortunately, the film raises more questions than it answers.

It's a riveting story, weaving together a story of two men's psychological and emotional journeys under the blanket of espionage

This is very powerful stuff, but what you ultimately make of it will have a lot to do with the politics you bring to watching it.

A gripping tale of espionage and friendship beyond borders, The Green Prince is a pleasant surprise and most definitely worth a watch.

They tell their stories with passion and intensity, making the most of every word.
