The outright predictability of this film still doesn't stop it from breaking every stereoptype it's based upon.

turkish version of the indian - american movie "my name is khan"... the movie was very good except in some bad information they gave about Muslims.. Muslim man can marry Christian woman it is not forbidden like the cop said!! and in the same time Muslim woman can't marry Christian like his daughter actually did!!!!!

Förstår inte riktigt vitsen med denna film. r det en reklamfilm för Turkiet? r det för att visa att det finns muslimer som är frommare än nyfödda lamm? Det blir direkt skrattretande när dottern och svärsonen säger till den anklagade pappan att idag gifter vi oss i kyrkan och i morgon i Mosk (C)n. Vilken mosk (C) släpper in kristna kvinnor för att gifta sig över religionsgränserna?

New York, İstanbul ve Bitlis geninde geen film tm eksiklerine ve senaryo hatalarına rağmen Trk filmlerinin yurtdışı tantımı aısından ve sylenemeyen konuları beyazperdeye aktarırken sergilediği cesaretli anlatım kurgusu ile kanımca film başarılıydı. Her ne kadar Mahsun filmlerinde ajitasyon unsurunu had safhada kullansada tebrik etmek lazım. Oyunculuklara gelince keşke Mahsun ve Mustafa Sandal kadroda olmasaydı. Filmde bayağı bir sırıttılar. Haluk Bilginer ise adeta yaşayan efsane. Oynadığı her filmin ıtasını kabiliyeti sayesinde st seviyede tutabilen nadir oyunculardan. Mutlaka izleyin.

Two Turkish anti-terrorist agents are sent to New York City on a mission to find and bring back the dangerous Islamic terrorist: DAJJAL, believed to be hiding there. Working with the FBI and NYPD, the agents orchestrate the arrest of Hadji Gumus, a well-respected Muslim scholar and family man who years before fled to the United States after being released from a Turkish prison, where he served time for murder. This tale of love, friendship, peace and prejudices, takes us on a journey seeking to answer the question of whether innocence or guilt even matters to one who lusts for vengeance.

"One of the worst films, I've ever seen." Thumbs down!

A decent enough stab at the Hollywood action genre that, despite the inclusion of some B-list US actors, fails to captivate due to an overlong middle section and some dodgy TV movie acting. 5M's lack of atmosphere is mostly due to its dependence on bright, over-lit interiors and an overall lack of grit and even its often spectacular stunts and splosions sequences are not enough to stop the eye-lids flapping. Stars for the action bits and some nicely composed cinematography.

Interesting and enjoyable film. Keeps you hooked to the end, and it was worth it. The film has a message that is worthwhile in today's world of fear, racism and anti-Muslim sentiment. A great story set in the modern world of terrorism and government efforts to oppose it.

fragmani o kadar cafcafliydiki bende birsey cikacak sandim, film zaten fragmandaki sahnelerden ibaretti... Ali S:urmeli resmen figuran rolundeydi, topu topu 5-10 dakka zikir cekerken görundu o kadar.. Ne konuyla alakasi vardi nede bir daha kendisini gorebildik..

Dos agentes de Turqua son enviados a Nueva York contra el terrorismo en una misin para encontrar y traer de vuelta al peligroso terrorista islmico: DAJJAL, que creen que se esconde all. Trabajan con el FBI y la polica de Nueva York, los agentes buscan a Hadji Gms, un erudito musulmn respetado y hombre de familia que aos antes de huir a Estados Unidos despus de ser liberado de una prisin turca con cargos de asesinato. Este cuento de amor, amistad, paz y de prejuicios, nos lleva en un viaje que busca responder a la pregunta de si la inocencia o la culpabilidad iguala la situacin de aquel con deseos de venganza.

La tipica pelicula estadounidense pone a los musulmanes como la clase de persona que le vale madre el projimo mientras no piense como l, como terrorista, extremista o fundamentalista,., o no? pues aca ponen el otro lado de la monera, una pelicula desde la perspectiva musulmana donde, es verdad hay extremos de todo, como en cualquier religion y desviaciones de la creencia que desenvocan en violencia y muerte.

Aqui vemos lso diferetens puntos de vista, del musulman fundamentalista, el practicante, el gringo "victima" y de la policia tanto de eu como de un pais como turquia en la cual tiene uan diversidad de creencias, idiomas y religiones.

esta interesante de ver, aunque si algunas veces las actuaciones se sienten muuuy light o de novela, en ootros personaejs y sistuaciones si le ponen el drama necesario para manternerte atento!

Definitely one of the best religious movies ever!
Hopefully this movie will at least help a little bit to bury all the religious problems, difficulties and missunderstandings, especially related to the Islam. Also I certainly hope that the great story will calm all the negativity, hate and permanent fights between all of these various religions.

Highly recommended!!!
