Excellent 'non-Hollywood' spy / intelligence thriller
9 May 2018 | by imranahmedsgSee all my reviews

Labyrinth is an excellent intelligence drama set mainly in Istanbul, Turkey. It revolves around a small group of Turkish intelligence officers trying to foil a major terrorist plot by capturing members of an active radical Islamist cell.

The plot contains human elements by bringing in the personal lives of several of the officers. The emotional toll of high stress work often with disastrous results and the ensuing guilt is well portrayed.

The movie's excitement level builds well until the denouement. An often predictable plot with wooden acting at times, the movie is saved by the rising excitement level and a few key twists in the plot, including the conclusion.

However, what really differentuates this movie from the standard Hollywood spy thriller is that it's not Hollywood. It's a Turkish production with Turkish nationalist undertones reverberating throughout the film. No American or British heroes here.

Those interested in spy thrillers will enjoy Labyrinth.
