Marc L (us) wrote: As an Australian thriller that poses as a horror film, it's atmospheric and not embarrassingly awful. Sadly, though, it plods rather than draws you in, and none of the characters and events are particularly interesting. Works with a bare minimum approach, and although the central teenagers are just as realistically daft and arrogant as they need to be for this plot to work, the project's main appeal is its ambience, although that's occasionally stifled by the pseudo-flashy editing.
Ragan I (ca) wrote: After watching the documentary about Muhammad titled Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet, it is easy to see the misconceptions that many may have about the people of Islam, Muhammad(TM)s teachings, and who exactly the people of this faith worship. What we are given is the information. Muhammad brought peace and hope within 23 years to a place that was before violent and war stricken. Yet, fast-forward and that is how it has appeared to have remained. We are told in this documentary that there are 7+ million Muslims in America and that the Islam faith is to be one of the most diverse of all the religions. With that said, I do not recall one blue eyed and blond headed person throughout the documentary. I did see person after person that was dark eyed and dark hair. So, I take this diversity to mean more of regional and cultural diversity, and not physical racial diversity. The film goes on to display the need that many have in wanting to understand the faith after the 9-11 attacks. It is said that the Muslim faith is not a violent one and the teachings of Muhammad do not condone nor ask for such behavior. Muhammad lived in a time and location of Arabia that was war stricken and blood shed was normal. This is not what he wanted to see or be a part of. In this time of about 1500 years ago this man was of raised up in slummish conditions as his family all died at different times, but all while he was quite young. However, he was still part of a tribe which was of great importance in this time. Karen Armstrong tells us that without the tribe one was nothing, but with the tribe you were a mass and had roots. During this time to have no roots was not good and warranted persecution. The documentary goes back and forth like this from the beginning of Muhammad(TM)s life into the present of today(TM)s Muslims. It links his teachings and the worship that is the true meaning of Islam. Toward the middle of the film we are given the story of Muhammad(TM)s nightly journeys which details one in particular of his nightly journey to Jerusalem. This was not a physically possible feat, thus, the importance of his journey and how it was one of spiritual nature. He comes to and sees a man in his tribe that asked him where he had been and when Muhammad replies that he had been to Jerusalem the man asked if he was sure he wanted to say that publically? Muhammad is then greeted by people asking for the description as proof of his journey that was provided and was so accurate it sparked the coming of more enemies that would plan his execution. The men were to come at night when Muhammad was sleeping and so they did. However, when they got there it was not Muhammad they found, but his cousin that was in his place while Muhammad and his friend set out to escape in the desert. He left Mecca. So, at this point we are given two holly sites that are Mecca and Jerusalem. Now, comes Medina.Muhammad and his friend make it to the settlement of Medina, much like the migrations of today with Muslims coming from the Middle East to the US to settle in places like Dearborn, Michigan where there are an estimated 2 to 3 million Muslims residing and worshiping openly and freely. The Muslim community looks to this particular story of Muhammad as a high significance because it is there in Medina that Muhammad becomes not just a holly man but a statesman as well. This is significant in the Islam religion as they feel that the religion should be the way you live your whole life, not just one aspect (religion) of it. In Medina he takes a fighting settlement that many Muslims were already apart of due to going there to hide from those against them. There, Muhammad creates the first Mosque for the Muslims that would also act as a center for the people and the newly developing government that Muhammad was creating. He then created the first type of constitution referred to as the Medina Constitution. This act brought the people together not under one religion but as one type of nation; something that has been copied even into the present just as the US has done the same for its people. Moving forward, in the film we are introduced to several people of that are Muslim and who have come to the US to seek religious freedom and possibility of earning one(TM)s own wealth. At this point when the people are talking about their connection with Muhammad and what he comes to face next is when I start to have an issue. They tell of the story when Muhammad had accomplished so much in the settlement with constitution and mosque that he then has the vision/premonition of what is to come and that people should then be given the right to pick up arms and defend themselves as a community against the enemy that will soon come to extinguish them. Is this not what the extremist of today say they are fighting for: To protect their people from the evil that is everyone and thing else in this world outside of Islam? Like Karen Armstrong, author of Muhammad says, the Quran always says it is wrong to start a war, but where does it say that it is wrong to finish it; also, where does it say where one war begins and/or ends and with which part of the blood line of the enemy?? It doesn(TM)t. So, these thousands, maybe millions, who are fighting this war? may quite possibly be fighting one that will never end until the blood line of their enemy is completely gone. This is then my issue with the teaching of this part of Muhammad(TM)s life, however, it is after this that I am given the hope of his journey when he ends the war and is seen as just because once the people had no reason to fear persecution based on religion he stopped the fighting. Muhammad had turned the tides and put an end to the violence. What he then explains is that the biggest Jihad is then not sacrificing one(TM)s self and killing the enemy, but rather, fighting one(TM)s self and one(TM)s own personal desires as Jihad means effort or striving according to Karen Armstrong. It is here that the history is then brought full circle and the relation between Muhammad and even Jesus are brought to surface in how they both taught that true reform begins with the self. Then Fire Marshall Kevin talks about 9-11 and my heart begins to break.While the Fire Marshall is bringing up the reason he does what he does he does so by telling the story of what he saw, heard, and felt during 9-11 being a man of New York state, a firefighter, and a Muslim. He states that he felt sick? at the possibility of Muslims? being behind the attack. He said that being a Muslim he wanted to do nothing but help because that is where and how his faith works; in helping one you help the world he says. He describes that being his reason he wanted to be a firefighter in the first place so as to help as many people as he could and then he had to bear witness to this. He spoke of Muhammad(TM)s fighting, but how he had a code of conduct, and that these extremists are not following that at all. He continued with how they lost sight of the true meaning of Islam. This brought a smile to my face, one of comfort, to hear a Muslim speak this way about the true meaning gave me hope for the religion(TM)s true message to be brought to surface. Next, Daisy Khan, Executive Director of Asma Society, goes on to explain some aftermath necessities of what needed to take place after 9-11 and that would be opening the line of communication; to talk about the humanity that all belong to. We are told in the film how terrorist and bombings have no place in Islam. In this aspect people of other faiths are given an answer that has been greatly needed after that day. Islam is of peace and of acceptance of nonbelievers. Looking back at the life of Muhammad, this was the gift that Muhammad had and still has given in his teachings that Muslims follow. A great example is the 2-3 million people a year that take the annual pilgrimage to Mecca as Muhammad had done before since this also follows the steps of one Abraham; a patriarch of Muslim, Judaism, and Christianity. Muhammad tells all to treat each other with kindness, end the killings, and accept each other. Muhammad took a community and unified them, unified so many, and in 23 years tool what was chaos and bloodshed and brought peace and hope to so many, not just Muslims. He brought a hope that still transcends into the present. With that, Muhammad was then at one point looked at as a God, and it wasn(TM)t until his death that he was noticed as the mortal man that he was, and so, it is his teachings that are praised and his ways that make him a great role model for others to follow the lead of, not worship him. Islam is to worship God, and therefore, the example of Muhammad and here is the true meaning that came from the documentary Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet.

There are no true emotions here, no feelings of excitement, no feelings at all. Rubbish.

This goes far beyond simple "Product placement". Ed Skrein is a PATHETIC replacement for the franchise original Transporter Jason Statham, Skrein look constantly constipated and pissed off about it. Loan Chabanol and all the other girls in the film act like they are on a Fashion Show runway instead to trying to act. The only saving grace in acting in this film is Ray Stevenson, who is actually believable in his character. Without Statham, just please retire this film franchise already!
