Quotes:

[first lines]

Asif:
Congratulations, Nabi. We are at the doorstep of our martyrdom.

Nabi:
Praise Allah.

Asif:
Praise him! Soon, we will be greeted by Allah, the one true god… and by the cheers of our Four Fathers… and by ninety-nine perfect virgins who will worship us… for ALL eternity!

Nabi:
[pause]
I thought it was one hundred.

Asif:
What's that?

Nabi:
One hundred virgins. They promised me one hundred.

Asif:
Ninety-nine, one hundred. What's the difference?

Nabi:
If they're telling you one thing and they're telling me another, maybe they don't know for sure.

Asif:
Maybe… maybe the exact number of virgins is not precise.

User Review

An exercise in thrash movie-making – best video game adaptation ever

Rating: 9/10


I saw the world premiere at the Fantasia Festival in Montreal.
Seriously, this movie blows away anything ever done by Boll.

It's the most violent, disgusting, offensive, thrash movie I've ever
seen. I give the movie 9 stars because it was exactly what Boll was
intending, and it's a complete success. Go home Takashi Miike! To sum
up, it's probably the best video game to movie adaptation ever made. It
perfectly captured the spirit of the video game, and then added more,
always more, to create such excess that you can't help but laugh during
the whole thing.

People criticizing the movie because it's violent, disgusting and
offensive shouldn't comment on it – they obviously missed the point.
