In 1453, the Byzantine capital of Constantinople is surrounded by Ottoman Turks. The city is but a shadow of its former glory due to the empire's ever receding coffers, while the Ottoman Empire continues to grow rich. After years of tolerating the existance of Byzantium, the ambitious sultan, Mehmet II launches his campaign to end the Byzantine Empire and take Constantinople for the Ottomans, resulting in arguably the greatest siege of that age.Written by
The best cinematographic spectacle by Turkish film industry n one of the best epic war film.
Saw this on a rented DVD in 2012. The poster raised my curiosity n the trailer blew me away. Revisted it recently on a Blu ray which i own. This film is the best cinematographic spectacle by Turkish film industry. Haven't seen much of Turkish cinema but this film n Valley of the wolves made me a fan of their movies. Both r solid action entertainment. Hands down, this film is one of best epic action film of sword, saddle, bow & arrow. Fans of the genre will be pleased. The film looks pretty, its well directed, the acting is fine and the fights n action sequences are really spectacular. The battle scenes are pleasing to look at and astonishing in their scope. It is an entertainment at grand level. Two actors who really stood out r the hunky Ibrahim Celikkol n Dilek Serbest. Director Faruk Aksoy divides his nearly three-hour movie among battle sequences, the love story and the various strategy n drama. The cinematography is awesome. Every item of clothing and weaponry has been meticulously researched and hand-crafted. The camera shots are rich and engrossing. There is a certain scale that's inevitable in films of this sort (Troy, Kingdom of heaven, Gladiator, Red cliff, etc.) and Fetih 1453 doesn't disappoint.
