I will say it is a nice try
I will definitely say that it was a nice try to change the type of Arabic movies, but I just couldn't feel it. I was excited at the beginning because it was recommended to me by friends, but I was disappointed. The only good thing in the movie is the acting, music and the directing. The story and the script didn't add anything new to the cinema industry. The script contains a lot of Western type of lines and cliché, the Arabic references were good but not enough tho. I liked the cursing, the drinking and the sexual content, but it did not fill the gaps in the story really well to make it feel more middle eastern, basically it didn't reflect the reality of the middle east in a very accurate way, but I still believe that Arabic movies should add them in today's movies. In conclusion, as long as Hollywood is still producing movies, the Arabic movies industry should not worry about the Arabic audience, and they should take their time to produce a film that can reach an international level with more realistic expectations.
