Movie Info

THE OTTOMAN LIEUTENANT is the first movie to explore the eastern front of World War I, and tells the story of a beautiful, strong-willed woman (Hera Hilmar), who, frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, leaves the United States after meeting Jude, an American doctor (Josh Hartnett) who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire - a world both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become the first World War. There, she finds her loyalty to Jude and the mission's founder, (Ben Kingsley) tested when she falls in love with a lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army (Michiel Huisman). Now, with invading army forces at their doorstep, and the world about to plunge into all-out war, she must decide if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself.

"The Ottoman Lieutenant" is all over the map in terms of tone, genre and acting styles.

We can smell the rancid coats of paint on this attempt to whitewash history.

Mar 10, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

A near-constant flow of clichés.

Mar 10, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The by-the-numbers story never achieves its aimed-for grandeur or intensity, and the striking Turkish locations prove far more interesting than the characters.

There isn't much of a script here.

Mar 9, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

"The Ottoman Lieutenant" is an overwrought nurse romance merged with a history lesson, a combination that is hard to take as seriously as the film wants to be taken.
