I've seen countless movies about a assassins in my time and this is definitely on par with the best. Never before have I seen a movie produced in Turkey and after seeing this I have a high degree of respect for Turkish cinema.
The great thing about the execution of this film is it's character building and no need for an overdose of special effects.
The cast was excellent and surely had this been an amateur director and/or producer this would have turned out very badly.
The substance very much reminds me of another assassin movie "Léon: The Professional".
Well done Turkey for this exceptional feature film.
