WOW! that really sucked
16 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got a chance to see the movie last week, and what an unfortunate pick it was. I really appreciate the last movement in Turkish Cinema which has produced quite good films; but with this one, I can easily tell you that it is one of the worst I've ever watched coming from the last generation Turkish movies (as bad as "Dar Alanda Kisa Paslasmalar").

I waited, waited, waited....... with the hope that something was gonna happen and boom!!! the magical moment: turning all your perceptions of the movie upside down, making you get caught by the movie completely.

Unfortunately, after waiting for this magical moment about 45 minutes, it was the time for me to realize that there wouldn't be anything interesting coming at all. Even though I consider myself pretty much patient person, I couldn't take it anymore -as most of you would have done the same thing- i had to ff to see what happened at the end. At that point, you might ask "How come there wasn't anything good in the whole movie which brings together some of the very well-known names from Turkish Cinema&Theater scene?".

Yes there was one thing good and it was Edip Akbayram's song; but even that couldn't help the movie not to suck
