1-The Cell:

 

The cell is one of Ezz's best films, and it marked his first collaboration with a famous Syrian actor Samer Elmasry. The entertaining crime thriller is intriguing, and it made the audience revisit the film in theatres multiple times. The film was the only blockbuster of the year 2017, and Ezz started getting a massive fan following.

The significant events revolve around a special operations officer who deals with more than one terrorist operation and is hunting down terrorist cells. The patriotic movie shows security forces' efforts to combat and vanish terrorism and shows the barriers they face during their partonic missions.

2- The passage:

EZZ again donned the khaki uniform for Sherif Arafa's directorial (The Passage), and the film received rave reviews and became a blockbuster.

The film's remarkable success made the duo join hands for sequels, and the film was also introduced in several languages. 'Passage'is one of the best entertaining cop dramas in Egyptian cinema, and the film reportedly grossed close to  100,00000 L.E at the box office.

This movie is the first blockbuster war movie released in domestic cinemas since 1993’s 'Al-Tariq Ila Eilat' (The Road to Eilat) showcasing an Egyptian military ‘behind enemy lines’ operation during the War of Attrition 1967-1973, according to Egyptian movie makers.

 

3-  The Benefit:

The movie tells a story of a very serious and strict officer who goes after a dangerous drug dealer to take revenge for his brother, in an attempt to try and stop the drug and weapon dealing business in the Sinai peninsula.
