When i watched this movie i didn't have high expectation, as I've watched many Turkish movies recently and I'm aware in what genres the Turkish cinematographers are good. The movie is worth watching and it touches very serious topics, such as drug usage among the youth etc, although it didn't have many original elements. I also didn't like the performance of many actors including Mr. Kurtulus', it was quiet mediocre.
To conclude, if you are planning to watch this movie lower your expectations and just watch it as any other Hollywood action flick with a small Turkish touch.
