  1. For the most part successful, focusing on the struggles of Muhammad's followers in 7th century Arabia. The reliance on point-of-view shots, however, is at times disorienting and creates the unintentionally comedic effect of a prophet-cam panning back and forth or up and down as Muhammad moves his head.

    In its way, a triumph of globalization, a polished, Western-style entertainment about a distinctly non-Western subject. Its message, like the Abyssinian king's, is finally one of reconciliation: we're not as different as we seem.

    Though noble in its intent to portray Islam as a peace-loving faith, the narrative flow remains compromised by its catechistic asides and displaced hero.

    This simplistic animated feature falls firmly within the long tradition of bland, upbeat and earnest religious instructional films.

    A very thought provoking movie to say none the least. Undoubtedly the most influential single figure in human history. If one does not understand the concept behind something one has no right to judge it, and with due respect, this movie was not made, in my opinion, to be critiqued on the fact that Muhammad (PBUH) was not shown. Why Muhammad wasn't shown is not a matter of debate, but a matter of dignity and respect. The movie contained a balance of animation and stated facts. In the many movies i have seen throughout my life, this has touched me more than any other in total honesty, not because i'm a Muslim, but because it reminds me of why i am a Muslim. In an era when the world was awash in rivers of blind prejudices and nonsensical ignorances, the Prophet's (PBUH) divine message and glorious teachings became the purging torrents of spiritual enlightenment. The farewell sermon is an embodiment of the dynamics of Islam. Expand

    I thought this movie was great. The important aspect of it was that of the makers "not showing the image" of the Prophet Muhammad saws and his companions as was very respectful. You can't fathom what the most perfect of creation would look like or those whom were amongst him. Expand

    I think this is a very good movie because u cannot see prophet muhammed or the ones who followed him.Its actually respect to the muslims because no one except Allah and the people who lived way back then know how Prophet Muhammed looked.So if someone wants to say that this movie is horrible then they should think about what i am saying!anyway asalamu alaykum.
