A Prophet Blu-Ray Review

A Prophet Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES AN OSCAR WINNER FOR BEST FOREIGN FILM, IS PART COLD-CASE MYSTERY, PART LONG-LOST LOVE STORY, AND PART THRILLER SET BOTH IN THE PRESENT AND IN 1970S ARGENTINA, UNDER THE TIGHT CONTROL OF ITS INFAMOUS MILITARY DICTATORSHIP. SUBBED IN ENGLISH AND DUBBED IN FRENCH.  

A Prophet details the gritty prison career of nineteen-year-old Malik.  Arriving at the jail, he is cornered by the leader of the ruling Corsican gang and forced to carry out a number of dangerous missions including drug trafficking and brutal hits.  Over time Malik is able to earn the gang leader's confidence and rise up the prison ranks, all while secretly devising his own plans.

Review: A Prophet really should've been a television show or at the very least a mini-series.  In the tradition of great movies like the Godfather and shows like the Sopranos, this crime drama is epic in every way.   I wasn't sure going into this one how decent it would be, but it really surprised me.

This one is a thriller all the way.  Its based mostly in prison while Malik learns to become a true criminal.  I really found this one enjoyable.  If you're into crime and or prison drama, like the cable show "OZ", this one is definately up your alley.  We highly recommend it.

The film is best viewed in the blu-ray format.  The high-definition picture is fantastic and the sound quality is superb.

Interest Range: Thriller, Action/Adventure
