Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: If "The Green Prince" sustains the tension of a well-executed thriller, it is achieved at the cost of a dispassionate objectivity.
Fresh: Though it's set in the context of a highly combustible international situation, its emphasis is always on the personal, on these two men and what they came to mean to each other.
Fresh: This a film that leaves many unanswered questions, but it's nonetheless satisfying, because it resonates emotionally and offers a ray of hope that the human spirit has the ability to trump entrenched political perspectives.
Rotten: The movie's empty pizzazz is especially irritating because the story would have been compelling without any embellishment.
Rivetting true story
A friend recommended this film. I was captivated by this incredible story that gives first hand accounts from inside Hamas and Israeli intelligence. A strong human touch of a very personal sacrifice by a man who knew he would lose everything in order to do what is right. You begin to realize the dark lies that so many Palestinians are brought up with. This story brings hope in midst of this darkness. Great balanced view of Israeli intelligence as well. The central characters are real men of honor.
What an inspiring Documentary. How two people from 1 cultures can come together and save hundreds of lives. God Speed to both!
Although familiar with the details of Mosab’s story long before seeing this film, and hence, almost dismissed the need to see it…I am SO GLAD I saw it. Besides being very well produced, it exposed the emotional mindset of both Mosab and his handler, Gonen, and even a little of Mosab’s own father, the founder of HAMAS. One of the aspects that really shocked me was the humanity of people who I too easily group together as the “Nazis” of our own times. I learned that even these “monsters” have a humanity that I need to consider, especially as resident of Israel who encounters Palestinians on a daily basis. It reminded me that not everything is “black and white” and to go on loving my neighbor as I love myself, even if he/she is my enemy, because underneath the belligerent veneer of that enemy may lay a very redeemable side…a Mosab.
