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

I recently had a chance to check the latest from director Mahsun Kirmizigul, and fully expecting it to be propaganda for Islam, got to watch a Turkish film with great performances and a thoughtful message instead. The film begins with a thrilling raid sequence in which the director displays all the skills of a Hollywood action director, and maintains a fast pace until the second half of the film. FIVE MINARETS then turns into a captivating drama. The acting is solid across the board, especially veteran actors like Robert Patrick and Danny Glover could have phoned it in but instead deliver sensible performances. This is miles beyond what Kirmizigul achieved with his previous directorial effort, I SAW THE SUN. Here he has provided the audience with a bona-fide blockbuster, and (if you can overlook a few schmaltzy scenes) he remains a director to follow.
