This movie is accurate in portraying how the Latins did not want to help the Greeks vs. the Ottomans. It was too much an Omnipresent type of Narrative. A not historically accurate love triangle of Urban's daughter and the Giovanni Giustiniani, who died AFTER leaving the city with his men on a ship and NOT at the hands of her "found' lover. The acting was not so great from her part. It was "too" predictable at times to figure out the emotions. The last scene of Mehmed in the Hagia Sophia was too political, making him seem like a poster child ...by literally holding a crying, then smiling child. The extras were not given enough direction on how to act, or either the dept. in charge of visual effects. The computer graphics are subpar.
Did however appreciate the affect they placed in the Ottoman ranks wondering about the Hungarians to arrive, and the 3 Geonese ships that passed the Ottoman Navy. The actor in place of Mehmed did excellent, great acting. I would not however higher Urban's daughter, besides her striking blue eyes, she needs some work. Also the fighting by the Greeks themselves of rather having the Turks control the city rather than the Pope. Overall its good to watch to learn histroy. However it needs to be polished. As stated it is predictable, and obviosuly if you are a Historian you would know what is to happen. However there are great movies out there that reflect off history and the Director has performed such a great job at creating the suspense that the viewers are watching (and you know the end should be good), but still, it's the action.
