She's the slowest and the whiniest and most annoying of all the characters.

Watch at your own waste of time and don't say I didn't warn you.

However, I could only discover one really exciting situation.

Nothing happens for the first 45 minutes, and you're SOOOO hoping at some point the effing glasses get smashed or whiny, stupid, SLOW-assed Sarah gets killed so you can actually watch a movie.


Apart from the location, which is stunning and nicely shot, this is a trying film.

voice recognition turns on randomly and starts playing music during an intense scene...

So, in all it's slow going and isn't dissimular to other found footage films when it does finally kick in, so is relatively predictable.

And there wasn't very much explanation, so you're kind of disjointed.

It becomes tiresome at the latter half rather than inspiring.

The film started quite well, the footage of the possessed woman being shot after exorcism was promising, the setting of Jerusalem was fascinating and the filming was smoother, better than the usual headacre inducing jerky filming usually associated with found footage.

also, a cliché.

There were also no scenes that could scare you, there was no excitement whatsoever, the zombies were rather boring, the whole dead brother story made no contribution to the movie, except at the end that I was just waiting to come.

Worst movie i ever saw.

The storyline and concept of the movie are originally creative, interesting and pretty exciting.

Slow start and no character development: I was engaged with the movie throughout, including the beginning and got a pretty good sense of the characters' personalities.

The initial set up is predictable enough, we get to know the two girls, one is pretty innocent, the other is pretty, and not, and they get with two guys and have a bit of fun.

Keep in mind that even with all of these errors I still found this movie entertaining to watch, going into it expecting little.

Two Jewish American girls en route to Tel Aviv are tempted into an adventure in the old city of Jerusalem, where unexpected happenings ...

But it really did impart the confusion of a fight and also helped a little with plot twists.

Multiple previous movies crammed into a b-grade cliché .

To me, its the most enjoyable 90min ever since for the following reason.

Don't waste your time.

But it was worth watching....

Unfortunately the boyfriend runs on the field not looking back, and it takes way too long before he gives his girlfriend attention.

A bland horror movie that is hard to sit through .

But seriously, worst movie EVER.

this movie is try to blend World war z and exorcist and REC but 45 minute drama/dialogue man that is a boring 45 minute.

Don't waste your time on this one.

however i still find this movie entertaining , nice scenery of jerusalem, conflict between Israeli and Palestine quite amusing.

I thoroughly enjoyed JeruZalem, it gave me what I wanted - scares, laughs, attractive actresses, a mysterious atmosphere, a bit of political commentary, plus some unexpected twists at the end.

Seriously this is the worst movie I ever saw by far.

It's fast paced, well acted, and just short enough not to outstay its welcome.

Then it gets even more cliché by not giving any sort of character study.

It took ages for anything of any worth watching to happen- bulk of the film is setting the dislikeable backgrounds and 'personalities' of the lead characters.

The attempts at trying to scare the audience failed, everything was laid out and predictable.

It is painfully slow.

The on-screen characters are team of painstakingly predictable tourists and a couple of equally unremarkable locales.

*sobcrywhinesob*" cliché.

No doubt the movie could have been better, but it was still worth the watch and I look forward to seeing what the Paz brothers do next.

In summary, a very entertaining experience which attempted something different to what we are accustomed.

Story-line: highly monotonous and boring.

I wanted to see the military fighting these demons but we are stuck with some cliché characters running around screaming at everyone and everything in there path, still it was enjoyable for the most part, I mention cliché characters but for the most part they played their roles pretty good, but the main actress was very annoying at times and made some questionable decisions that drove me nuts, and there's a reason her friend got more screen time than her, way more enjoyable person a WAY more attractive.

If there's a sequel, there's going to have to be some better special effects and dialog to make it worth the watch.

The technology is impressive, but the plaything of the two girls is banal and irritating in comparison.

Take Cloverfield, Blair Witch, Rec, and blurry images of "I am Legend" and then make it abominable, to the point where all the good aspects of those movies are ruined by terrible acting, low budget effects, zero reasoning, and predictable direction.

Waste of time .

The cracked camera lense for that really cool disjointed and shattered film look.

It also opts for smart glass gimmick which can be a nifty addition at times, however the first person endeavor in horror genre is a bland and tired one, a spectacle many others of its peer has done better.

Add to that the sometimes contrived and primitive acting and you'll come to the conclusion that it's far from being as brilliant as "World War Z" for example.

JeruZalem (2016) is a bland horror movie that is hard to sit through.

The movie started out cool, for the first ten minutes, but then got steadily boring with predictable, pov, trite sophomoric "humor" for tge next twenty+ minutes, to the point that I was eye-rolling contantly.

It's entertaining enough if there's nothing else on.


) Omar killing himself (pretty pointless), the soldiers NOT shooting the demons, psycho-David hiding under a table...

The characters are stultifyingly stupid and irritating: giggling, horny, chirpy, shallow and banal.

Not to mention that when she finally did something right (located the asylum keys), she couldn't get the lock open, but rather fell into horror-movie cliché of the girl who is too scared and shaking to simply turn a key.

its worth watching.

Started off well but quickly deteriorated into a rather boring event.

I love zombie movie!Very entertaining type of movie to watch, especially in the scope of a smart glass.

)Shouldn't a biblical apocalypse be a little more exciting and interesting than this?

TOTAL waste of time...

Yet another in the endless "found footage" genre, "Jeruzalem" manages to bore AND induce sleep.

The result is a very enjoyable horror romp that hits most of the right buttons.

Overall: engaging start, not so much with the way it developed.

It could have been a found footage movie without her, and I would have enjoyed it more.

Yes, the characters did do illogical things, but it was somewhat entertaining none-the-less.
