The Cell (El-Khaliyyah) is an Egyptian film was released on September 1st 2017 and not to be confused with the American movie of the same title. When terrorists detonate a bomb in a residential area, it is up to a team of special operations officers led by Saif (Ahmed Ezz) to track them down. Unfortunately, things don’t go according to plan (do they ever?) and Saif soon finds himself battling from a different direction.
The story was really good and with the great action scenes the 2h 6 minutes seemed to fly by. The car scenes reminded me a lot of the humour of the old Bond movies, and I really did laugh out loud watching. If you are not a fan of movies with subtitles, then this movie won’t convert you as sometimes the text didn’t appear to stay on screen for very long. That did not detract from the story however, and I would easily rate this 4 out of 5.
