A piss poor attempt at whitewashing a terrorist attack and it's perpetrators
28 March 2019 | by ufster-2See all my reviews

The timing of the movie is remarkable in that it will serve to alleviate some of the white guilt regarding the terror attacks in New Zealand which targeted Muslim immigrants, even though the clueless and incompetent director-producer duo clearly meant this as a glorification of those very people. It's based on the terror attacks of Broken Hill, an event where Muslim immigrants, in a religiously motivated terror attack (aka Islamic Jihad) killed unarmed Australian citizens, you know, because they were of the wrong religion and fighting against those of the right religion. The backlash and the outrage would be inconceivable if a movie similar to this were produced by the Australian film industry, in which past crimes of Australian extremist fanatics were handled in such a glorifying light. So, sleep well, people of Australia ridden with liberal white guilt over the terror attacks in New Zealand, there is nothing uniquely barbaric about your extremists which warrant you to personally take responsibility for their actions and realize that halfway across the globe, a movie exists in which radical Muslims are glorifying their past crimes committed against your civilian population and half the Turkish nation is crazy proud of the notion. I hope, this will put things into perspective a little bit better.

As far as the movie goes, it's artistic value is perhaps less than that of Ayla, another somewhat jingoistic flick made by the same people using the same formula, which in itself was mediocre at best and I'm being quite generous here. As a pair of amateurs targeting an ignorant domestic crowd, director and producer decided what was reasonably well done with Ayla is to be diminished and what stood out as childish drivel is to be exaggerated for the movie to succeed. Well, it succeeded in sucking for sure.
