Not an awesome flick, but entertaining nonetheless
Saw this last night and I had a great time watching it. Reading all the other comments and seeing that the main opinion is that the movie sucks, I have to disagree. A reasonable watch, entertaining with a pretty cool ending.

A thing that did bother me was the actor who played the 'human-suit' Djinn: he acted a little over the top...the evil smiles (and evil they were :) got somewhat irritating after a while.

One of the best parts in the movie is where the Djinn is sitting in the office of the manager of that jewellery company and the manager says he wants a million bucks. I'm not gonna spoil what happens next, but I think it's one of the most original parts I've seen in a horror movie. I almost rolled on the floor laughing (evil :) Another pretty cool part is the part where the Djinn fulfills the wish of that really pretty female clothing-shop employee. I cracked up. :)

Another plus is that we see an evil Djinn instead of the friendly 'Genie'. It was a very nice twist.

All-in-all, a good watch and to fill some time, it's great.
