Two Turkish anti-terrorist agents are sent to New York City on a mission to find and bring back the dangerous Islamic leader codenamed "Dajjal", believed to be hiding in there. Working with the FBI and NYPD, the agents orchestrate the arrest of Hadji Gumus, a well-respected Muslim scholar and family man who years before fled to the United States after being released from a Turkish prison, where he served time for murder. This tale love, friendship, peace and prejudices, takes us on a journey seeking to answer the question of whether innocence or guilt even matters to one who lusts for vengeance. Written by

A Mystery/Thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I enjoy watching most movie genres but it is especially pleasing when a movie like this particular one comes along every so often and keeps me wanting to watch more and more movie titles. It seemed like I just started to watch the movie and then it was far too soon that it was over. Five Minarets in New York was also released under the alternate title An Act Of Vengeance. All the main characters in this movie displayed a true sense of purpose in their job and in their lives. It is a movie with various stories to tell about life, fear, hatred, vengeance, deception, faith and love of family. The main character Haji, played by Haluk Bilginer is arrested in New York for crimes that his family are not aware of nor are told by the authorities. Haji certainly has a love for mankind and values life, but is he the extreme terrorist that the authorities have accused him of with evidence? The lesson I learned from this movie is to love your family and friends every day as you never know when things will change....as in Five Minarets in New York.
