Muhammad The Last Prophet (2001/Animated/FMG/MPI Home Video DVD)


Picture: C+ Sound: C+ Extras: C Main Program: C+



After seeing endless animated works aimed at children for Christian and Catholic teachings, it is interesting to see Muhammad The Last Prophet (2001) do the same thing with Islam and be less condescending than many such programs have been since the 1980s. It is less abrasive, more pleasant and smoother than the lesser programs and is a moderate telling of the story.


Animation is not bad, but not very expensive either. Some of the people (as the case rightly explains) who made this were involved with animated versions of The Fox & The Hound, The Swan Princess and the odd version of The King & I, but we have seen worse and it is a pleasant sit-through, especially if you want to see a more honest telling of the rise of Islam in the world.


The letterboxed 1.78 X 1 image is on the soft side and uneven throughout, but the color in the better scenes saves the overall presentation from being worse. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is not bad in English or Arabic, but has no surrounds and some sonic limits. Extras include stills, previews for other FMG product, a Music Video and some bonus video clips.
