I enjoyed the movie it had a good message. The acting and music was great. It was a well-done coming of age movie that was dramatic and so engaging the time flew by. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is at least 13 years old. I'm not sure if younger people (under 12 y/o)would get that much from the movie. Plus, there are some scenes that may be a bit much for children.

Mooz-Lum was excellent! The research to get everything right from an Black American Islamic perspective was extensive. The accuracy of this historical biopic is right on the money. Great experience for American Muslims and Americans in general.

A Sterling Platform Showcase for Evan Ross

By Bokiluis

Evan Ross adds another provocative layer to his amazing body of work with "Mooz-lum". Evan can be seen in seemingly endless re-runs of "ATL" on VH1, BET, TVONE and Fuse. He is also at the end of his run on CWs "90210". The promise he has demonstrated in films like "ATL", "Life Support" and "According to Greta", only solidifies with yet another intriguing role as Tariq in "Mooz-lum". It remains bold to even bring up the word, "muslim" for an intelligent discussion. The violence and insubordination of the characters in his movies like "Life is Hot in Cracktown" and "Gardens of the Night" meld with the sensitive soul that he emulates in "According to Greta" and "Pride". Evan does not appear to be waiting for some major motion picture breakthrough. He has fully embraced the possibility of doing great, important work in indie films. He is a movie away from breaking in as a "A" list actor, if that is something he wants. He is a provocative lead actor w/limited dialogue. Captivating!

I greatly enjoyed this movie. Although the plot was fairly linear the message was so timely that I recommend everyone go to see it.

I loved the movie! The plot was original and the story was well developed to reveal the deep issues among each character. Characters put on a convincing performance and the movie touched on a very important topic. Definitely a must see!
