Örümcek Ağı doesn't really deliver on its marketing promises to the fans of political-action thrillers.
One of the oldest and largest fraternal organizations of the world who see themselves as the descendants of the stonemasons who built the Temple destroyed by the Babylonians 2500 years ago is now trying to establish a World Empire, in the promised lands, in the Middle East and Turkey is at the heart of this plan. While this secret power has a foothold in the business world, media, army, police and political parties who will fight against them? A security organization named the National Security Organisation (UGT) known only to a select few
Such a great premise should be the hook which actually grabs the attention of true thriller fans shouldn't it? After all a movie, which claims to have something to say on Turkey's deep-state power struggles and political movements sweeping across the Middle East should be interesting, shouldn't it? Well not exactly? Kaos looks more like a popcorn video clip than a feature length movie. Imagine an international power having shell companies all over the world is trying to establish an empire in the Middle East and your biggest undercover secret service has been exposed and all you've got is a reckless, overconfident and explosion-centric captain. (Gökhan Mumcu) He's the ultimate cardboard cut-out from any Hollywood action movie. The fate of a whole country rests on his shoulders and yes he's been betrayed by almost everyone including his wife, who's been a counter-agent as you can easily guess. The film's official website claims that the action sequences offer a cinematic feast to true action fans. Our captain's fights choreographed in slow motion are so mind-boggling that you start yawning after a while :) The dialogue in the movie is ingenious too. Apart from the sleek, eloquent dialogue by our captain we have a stranded man whose car has been stolen. When men in black approaches they ask "what the problem is" our man in distress answers "They stole my car, man!" The glorious men in black answers back ".What brand was it?-Connect. Don't worry, we'll find your car" The poor's guy answer is hard to find "God bless you! Thank you, thank you!" The man in black remembers that he didn't ask for license number so he just asks for the number before he puts a bullet in the man's head. I wonder why no Turkish script writer has ever thought about this before. I think I should just not lengthen my comment more and leave you to watch this stupidly-scripted clunky clone with stilted acting,zero character development and wooden dialogue driven by chaotic mess.
