    I think your review is solid. I read the book and it does a better job getting into the redemption factor that you had problems with in the film. The movie moved so quickly, it never hovered on any one theme to really drive it home to the viewer. Keep up the good work!

    I really need to check out the book. I’m sure you’re right.
    I would really have liked to have seen more of Hassan after the invasion.
    Thanks for the kind words
