This film was the the subject of heated discussions in Germany. Originally it was rated "Not under 18" by the FSK, but distributor Maxximum appealed this decision which resulted in a "Not under 16" rating. Then the film became a success, especially amongst turkish teenagers. The success resulted in massive media coverage. This in turn resulted in broad discussions from politicians (especially from the Bavarian conservative CSU party), youth organisations etc. about the films "Anti-American statements" and their influence on youngsters. After another appeal (from the minister for family and integration from Northrhine Westphalia) the FSK raised the rating back to the original "Not under 18". See more »

After so many American movies where the bad ones are the "others", be it Germans, Russians, blacks, latinamericans, Chinese, japs, Afghans or Iraqis, it is refreshing to see a movie from the other side, full into the face of the ugly US-American! The film shows many situations we have heard about in the newspapers, albeit the story about chasing organs seems to be strongly exaggerated. Battle scenes are realistic and intense albeit separated by interminable, never ending dialogs. It is a pity the Americans are played by Turkish or Arab actors, or at least not typical American faces! Was it impossible to find enough big, blond, blue-eyed faces to play that part?
