    It is an awful film, and more a 'propaganda' film who tries to bind their audiences with only usage of a real event. Just to illustrate my review I illustrate 3 points why I think that this film is more than awful

    1) The usage of music: the whole film music is kind of 'patriotic' and is not suitable for viewers other than Turkish, traditional Muslim, 'AKP' and Erdogan fans. It is too loud sometimes. Because of this fact I deduce that this is not a movie to be presented as a 'movie' for artistic audiences, but a mere propaganda to give the audiences 'to feel' the patriotism.

    2) The 'dark' forces are so vague that is only understandable for people with an AKP (political party of Erdogan) understanding. In the end you only think that 'Gulen' is the bad person, but then he is not only one. So the plot uses much more of a 'common' known enemy for this political view than an actually artistic plot.

    3) When a movie uses an 'event' as their basic material, the expectation of the viewer is if there a new element which is unknown. This can be a 'point of view' of the filmmaker of a 'real' event which we don't know. Either of these elements could not be found in the movie and the viewer (which is more Erdogan fans) went home with an 'all-known' feeling.

    As I deduced in my first paragraph I think this movie is not made for the artistic audiences, just for the political party fans. Because of this fact I give this movie a 'mere' 1 (awful) just because there is no '0' (worse than awful) rating in IMDb system.
