The movie the novel deserves
31 July 2014 | by iAymanSee all my reviews

After reading the book for many times and watching the trailers for dozens of times, finally watched the much anticipated movie at the theater.

The movie is a masterpiece that's not only as amazing as the novel, but also completes and answers a lot of mystic questions in the mind of the readers.

The cast were amazing, they literally did it the way you visualize it in your mind while reading novel.

The music was great and well implemented, specially at the dream part.

Cinematography was the first time to see in an Arabic movie, though it's well known since movies like 300 and Sherlock Holmes.

A lot of people are wondering does the movie really deserve this score on IMDb, the answer is, compared to our Arabic movies, YES it deserves a 12, although for on international basis, the movie could be 7.5

At last, whether you read the book or not, you will get what your are bargaining for.
