After the death of his father Murat II, Mehmet II ascends to the Ottoman throne. After braving internal and external enemies, he decides to complete what he was destined to do - conquer Constantinople.
It is deception history by director's political view and underestimation of multinational disaster -war- and effort of a nation's struggle for its mainland under extreme conditions. It is a shame that it is a Turkish movie. Not just scenario is leaking, acting is also awful. The movie was taken in a place which is owned by the director and minimum necessary money was spent for figurants, effects etc... At overall, the movie is neither convincing for the foundation that it was built on nor it lets you to have nice time with cinema art. It is a cheap movie which was made basically to take the advantage of one of the greatest true story of mankind, tragedy and misery, hence to take your money. It is also quite meaningful for me that release of this movie on cinemas was quite close ( early close) to release of another Canakkale(Dardanels) movie which is obviously better and with no doubt more objective to what was really happened there.
