Big promise but poor finish
13 February 2012 | by eugedoSee all my reviews

The movie is set in one of the Homicide Dept.in Istanbul, and we have three homicide detectives as leads and each of them represent 3 different eras. Those leads are Sener Sen, Cem Yilmaz and Okan Yalabik. They play their parts considerably well, and we have great director Yavuz Turgul which altogether is a great promise. But that promise is never fulfilled by the weak plot of the movie. We see the crime and we see the clue right in the middle of the movie. That clue ruined me the better experience which movie was promising in the beginning. Cem Yilmaz' acting was good but sometimes felt that he was overacting. Still his versatility stuns us. Sener Sen was great as always in such underwritten role. He plays so easily and creates truly believable character. Okan Yalabik doesn't shine as a rookie cop, but still shows some potential. Cetin Tekindor is great as a main antagonist. But as I said before movie fails to keep its promise due to its weak and predictable script. Overall the movie is OK for a one-time watch
