"Choreographed like a genius. The music was dead on, it set the mood perfectly, the animation was clean and really well done, the story was quite profound but still enjoyable, KUDOS on a wicked movie!"
"VIOLENCE 10! KUZ IT BROKE MY HEART!!!
That was the sweetest thing I ever saw. if it's based on a true story.. it's the saddest. I almost cried. PLZ MAKE MORE!!! U ROCK!"
"Fantastic! Everything was awesome, awesome, AWESOME! The storyline, voices, the animation especially, this one hitting the list of my all-time favorites!"
"Outstanding. The title "The Invisible Evil" makes the viewer expect something weird, violent or spooky to happen, but it turns out that prejudice, fear, and neglect are the "evils" and they remain invisible as long as we consider them normal. Excellent moral."
"Magnificent. I never thought I see the day when we'd actually get to see a movie set in the Middle East that didn't involve cheep Ossama jokes and such. It's a lovely change. I also liked the fact that it was spoken in actual Arabic (A first I think) and some beautiful Arabic text along with it. And you did a fantastic job on the sound though, namely with the music."
"Very high-quality work… good story
A true story usually makes a good story, and this is a good example of that. I was most impressed by the high quality of graphics and sound-wise. Looking forward to more work from Dakheel."
"A perfect example of how wide-spread gossip, rumors and suspicion can ruin a person's life! An ordinary man becomes a crazy villain. The invisible evil is not the guy in this short; it's the above-mentioned gossip, rumors and suspicion based on nothing. These things ruined his life… and they can do the same to you!!! BEWARE!"
"The message surpasses anything else…
This piece has good graphics and style, the fact that it's a different language adds a unique flair to the piece."
"Great work. Great drama. And awesome moral. I am so glad that there was no violence. You know how to tell a story. It is wonderful to see someone who is able to actually tell a real story!"
"Pretty emotional. Liked your style, almost brought a tear to my eye. Also liked the fact that you didn't try to add any pointless special effects or humor."
"Mate, I have never been moved by a flash movie until today… I liked the way that the mother portrayed him, only for the son to realize how wrong she was. Poor poor Sida… I actually felt his sadness somehow. YOU ROCK!!!"
"I liked it. This was probably the first Arabic cartoon I've ever seen, really liked the music too! I really enjoyed watching it!"
"Simply stunning… First off, to all those who "don't know what it's about": It's called COMPASSION!. If you waited a bit after the end of the movie you would have seen this which summed up the whole thing: "Evil eyes could be gates to a sad lonely & broken soul.". I damn near cried when I saw that… We really have to learn to give people a chance, and accept them for who they are, instead of shunning them out of society and turning them into outcasts…. * sniffle stifle…."
"I am speechless. That was a truly beautiful piece of work. I feel so sorry for Sida. I am also assuming that the 'invisible evil' is the pain that he felt because people neglected him. Society in general needs to realize that everyone needs to be taken care of and valued as a person, regardless of their circumstance."
"This was amazing. I got lost in the movie and forgot that it was a flash myself. I wonder whatever happened at the end though
will there be a sequel?"
"Really powerful…. This is a good film, I felt really sad. Are you planning on doing more films based on your mother's childhood stories?"
"This Story is Amazing. When I Have Children I Will Be Sure To Tell Them of The Man With Evil Eyes, Who Had A Kind Heart And A Broken Soul But With No One To Share. The Moral Of The Story is Never Judge Someone By Their Looks."
"Omg that's so sad .. please tell me how did he die? did he die naturally, of suicide, maybe the pain he felt was too much for his heart, what?!
also, why did they call him crazy? please tell me where to find these answers!"
"The movie really actually moved me. It shocked me, and yet it came out so true and very close to home. 'Never judge a book by its cover' was the first thing that came to mind here. Good job, very good job."
"Intelligent and articulate movie making.
This is a gorgeous little movie. Character and story driven, it is well paced and well played. A genuine story told with excellent timing and obviously well staged and storyboarded (a beginning, middle and an end, very rare!). Excellent. More please!"
"Amazing! An absolute masterpiece, from beginning to end! Keep up the good work!"
"WOW, I can't believe there is an Arabic cartoon!
Good! Dramatic! all my 10 stars to you ;)"
