I'm Iranian and I didn't like the movie
15 January 2019 | by hoseinnejad25See all my reviews

First of all I'm not a professional viewer. It was a weak 'Hollywood style' movie, and by Hollywood style I mean those that show women as sex toys and there's always have to be a hero to save the world. Of course not all Hollywood movies are like as I described. Definitely not an Iranian movie, does not even have Iranian vibe to it, probably an Iranian-American culture. I like Maz Jobrani, but this movie I really didn't enjoy and I do not recommend this to anyone.
