As if you could actually spoil this film by a review
26 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

O.K. so the serious bad-ass badman Firat can not have this gorgeous blonde with huge hair and equally huge false eyelashes not because he is a bad-ass outlaw that she will have to worry about reading his obituary every day. They can not consummate their passions because... now brace yourself, because Firat's badman partners won't allow him (Firat is the top crime dog) to have a girl friend. More puzzling is that (spoiler) at the end to prove his love for Cigdem, Mr. criminal Firat tosses his gun away then walks out into a hail of bullets. Shot down dead. Of course. So, why this stupid gesture? Who knows. Who even cares. The movie made almost no sense and I expected no sense to be made from the outset. But as usual with Turkish garbage genre (this refers only to their bad bad bad films) it was fun and entertaining. Did this review help you? I hope not.
