Muy recomendable en estos días de exhaltación a la intolerancia para ver que el mensaje original del islamismo no se diferencia tanto del del cristianismo. Por lo demás, buena fotografía y guión, interesante.

"A religious epic that Hollywood tries to do for Islam what it did for Christianity. It's one of the few Hollywood pics on Islam, and because of its sincerity and straight-forward approach serves as a valid history lesson on the often misunderstood religion. The handsome production follows the conventions of the Christian epics by stressing how a persecuted few persevered and eventually after much suffering won over the pagan population with massive conversions. It was shot over a seven year period, as it traces the origins of the Islamic faith that began in 610 A.D. through the prophet Mohammed. The prophet remains unseen and unheard according to Islamic law, and when someone addresses the prophet they stare into the camera. That narrative device makes for a lot of awkward moments. The lectures on religious belief are dull, but colorful desert locations and some action-packed battle scenes make things more animated and watchable. "
