How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

The action in this film takes a while to get started. Does this slow pacing at the beginning of the story make it more difficult to engage with the plot? Can a slow start to a story sometimes be used as a way to create tension?

How does Bryan’s justification for killing people to rescue his daughter compare to Murad’s desire for revenge? Why does it seem more acceptable in the hero than the villain?

How do filmmakers using editing and choreography to create fight scenes?
