Despite a fair amount of Turkish being spoken throughout the movie, none of the actors are Turkish or have Turkish language backgrounds. Therefore they have different accents even though their characters are native to the language, especially Dominic Cooper, whose accent is a dead give away, even when he is speaking English. His "r" sounds are more European than Turkish when Turkish people, even when speaking English, put a lot of stress on the "r"s, while Cooper almost always skips them. See more »

This movie is supposed to be entertaining, and because it succeeded in that regard as far as I am concerned, it's a very good movie.
This is the kind of movie you should watch with a glass of beer in your hand. Enjoy the story for what it is and drink your beer. If you approach this movie with an analytic mind, you're probably not going to enjoy it. The plot's got more holes in it than a Swiss cheese and it shouldn't be treated as a deep, psychological study of the human mind.
Who the heck has the patience for that?
Just enjoy it on a basic, emotional level and I'm sure you'll have a good time.
