Clint Says: Wait for the digital release



I'm not really sure why this movie was made. It's a good movie. It's interesting. But it just feels like a film that has no audience. It would have made a little more sense if this was based on a true story or based in the current day Middle East, but it's a fictional story based in the 1970s and 1980s.


I will be shocked if this makes more that $5 Million total.


Audience aside, the acting is outstanding and the story is compelling. It has pacing issues, character issues, and a couple of minor plot holes, but for the most part it is a slightly above average film.


There isn't anything that makes this a movie worth seeing in theaters, but you might enjoy it from the comfort of your own couch.
