The movie budget is 30 MILLION DOLLARS but they can't get a REAL arab stylist!!!? the cloths are ridiculous! and the arabic dialogue may sound okay in the ear of non-arabs but it's not. Arabic accents tend to have a distinctive differences in both phoneme and vocabulary.
Beside... "Zahra" couldn't pronounce the letter [ح] correctly. which is the hallmark of arabian speaker.

An average movie

This movie didn't make much waves when it was released since I have always had a weak spot for Tom Tykwer's work, I was still eager to check it out. Futhermore, after 'Cloud Atlas', Tykwer was working again with Tom Hanks and I thought it was pretty neat to Hanks involving in some smaller project like this one for once. Well, eventually, to be honest, it wasn't really good, I'm afraid. Basically, ... read more

" Tom Hanks is fish-out-of-water when he experience culture shock in Saudi Arabia. It is marginally funny when he experience no-alcohol laws, how to get around no-female touching and a strange trip through Mecca, but the movie is never tough or unique enough with it's subject matter to really talk about the difficult religious issues nor what sets the cultures apart and ends up being a very weak but cute romantic love story instead. Everything hangs on Tom Hanks again and he fixes (as usual) most"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- August 2016 (28 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 38min. First Viewing A Hologram for the King is amiable enough, with several funny moments and a typically strong performance from Tom Hanks, but offers little else. Too slight and twee to really engage with many of the themes that it proposes, the film merely coasts on the lead's charms and fish-out-of-water humor. It works occasionally, but could've been much more. "
