  • This is frankly pretty cliched stuff.

  • It's hard to take your eyes off Moschitto's bulldog-like antihero - with his dangerous lips and furtive power plays, he makes Vincent Cassel in Mesrine look like Dale Winton's camper twin.

  • Despite the fresh setting and fine performances, Yildirim's screenplay is just too familiar to really admire. Instead of violent and ruthless Italians, we get violent and ruthless Turks.

  • Something more than just a thriller - a film as accurate and hard-nosed as it needs to be.

    August 24, 2009 | Rating: 3/5
  • Impressive directorial skills, if a trite plotline, are on offer in Turkish-German writer-director zgr Yildirim's occasionally violent debut feature.

Audience Reviews for Chiko

  • May 05, 2011
    decent enough and parts coming off well, a crime story about a guy tring to make his way up the ladder. his downfall and all that. so nothing fantastic or cutting edge about it, but good, entertaining and goes nicely, a film that does what it does

    Possessed of innate street smarts and a dead-eyed stare, Chiko (Denis Moschitto) dreams of success in the drug trade. His chief liability is combustible best “bro” Tibet (Volkan Ozcan), a blustery fighter who can’t grasp the big picture. Tibet’s mom ...( read more)(Lilay Huser) is undergoing kidney treatments, and the young men chafe at being unable to do more to help her. Setting his sights on a job with violent local drug kingpin and gregarious family man Brownie (Moritz Bleibtreu), Chiko elbows his hapless mule out of the way and earns the formidable task of moving a great deal of weed in a short time. The only caveat: The product must be sold from an apartment, not on the street. When Tibet breaks this rule and is spotted selling at a schoolyard, Brownie’s subsequent discipline --a nail in the foot -- drives a wedge between the two friends that rears its ugly head when Chiko becomes Brownie’s successful cocaine lieutenant and Tibet sinks into a drug-fuelled anger that manifests itself in revenge.
