A Tense Political Opinion
6 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, you can feel what you like about politics and stuff, but there's no denying this little movie is a RUSH! Its not a roller coaster or a tear-jerking drama. Its more like a massive build up until you explode. That's what makes it so awesome - you're clinging to your seat as the tension grows and grows and grows.

I don't know if this is some kind of political statement, but it does make you think. Is it biased? Maybe. Kinda. Sorta. But, then again, it makes your really think. Made me think of the TSA!

The whole story is really clear and linear, but you're not really sure where its all going. This guy (Sharia) is just being put through the process of passport checks and stuff (he's a foreigner coming to the US of A) when something we don't know about starts to happen. And then, everything starts to go wrong. The tension is huge and it all comes to a massive climax.

Again, you can believe whatever you want about politics, but you'll definitely feel something for the protagonist.
