Language Barrier - Carlos the Jackal review by CS

Spoiler Alert
04/02/2011

Based on the alleged story of the international terrorist Carlos the Jackal, most of the film takes place in the 70's. The film actually looks like it could have been a good film if it were not for the language barrier. Be aware that whilst this film is listed as having English Subtitles, it does not for most of the film! This is a foreign language film with five major languages being spoken throughout, mainly French, German, Arabic, Spanish and Urdu, with other languages thrown in. There is no English spoken in the film. The few English subtitles that there are cover only about 10% of what is actually spoken, so viewers whose main language is English may struggle to watch this film and understand what is being said. There are so many languages being spoken that it becomes confusing as the plot moves across borders through various European and Middle Eastern countries. For those with hearing loss, such as myself, there are no English Subtitles for Hearing Loss, so I would not recommend this film to anyone who needs English Subtitles. I couldn't tell you what happens in the end as I gave up halfway through due to the severe lack of English Subtitles, I couldn't watch anymore.
