Personal comment

what I love about this movie is that, it is very details! it is worth watching it for 2 hours!
I am sure all of you don't like to watch an action movie which too fast that leads us not being able to follow the movie, but this is not the case in this movie.

The idea of the story is simple. Faith & Conviction. Although it is simple but the actor is able to act it well.
Not to forget that this movie tell us about Humanity.

For the religious part, I don't really care about it, cause what is important is the meaning of the movie!

I'm listening to
