Cem Yılmaz(and his team) is great at synthesizing original works out of clichés. If you focus on short moments you'll be bored but overall it feels different. This movie aligns with that premise. The parts about the struggle of common Turkish people with foreign languages and Europe -Bulgaria in particular- are hilarious. Some impressive cold war era gadgets were on scene. Commercial product placements were smart and not irritating.
Cons: it's nowhere near Yahşi Batı, even the late appearance of Zafer Algöz could not raise the bar. The content was insufficient to justify the movie length, it should end in 90 minutes at most. Overall 6.5/10
