Laughably Bad, less propaganda and more poor TV spin-off idea turned Iraq war cash in

Tässä Valley Of The Wolves leffojen ekassa osassa turkkilainen superagentti Polat Alemdar pistää Irakissa sikailevat amerikkalaiset (pääjehuna Billy Zane) järjestykseen. Tässä ekassa leffassa on vähemmän puuduttavaa toimintaa kuin kakkosessa mutta silti olisi voinut muutaman minuutin lyhentää. Mutta kaiken kaikkiaan taas herkullinen islamin vihollisia demonisoiva toimintapläjäys!

Sublime story telling!
Indeed, this movie might be very skeptical at some point but to me, it has strong points regarding the invasion of Iraq, suicide bombing, beheading of journalist and pointing out the cruelty of US soldiers.. It even went afar by showing the treatment of prisoners in Abu Ghraib! Hopefully, these messages reach the audience~

I somehow don't think this went very well in Hollywood...
Politics and religion are no interests of mine, and that aside, the movie in itself is not really that great, but far better than a lot of other crappy stuff out there.
If "Yankee go home" is one of your favorite sayings, then you'll probably love this. Do keep in mind just as they tend to stereotype the "terrorists" in american movies, so does this movie stereotype the americans.
All in all, definitely worth a watch, if nothing else for the change of perspective.

A controversial Turkish actioneer no-worse and no-better than the clichéd stereotype-ridden Hollywood productions of the same ilk...

Turkish director Serdar Akar (‚??Gemide‚?? & ‚??Dar alanda kisa paslasmalar‚??) teams-up with Sadullah Sent√ľrk to bring cult Turkish television series ‚??Kurtlar vadisi‚?? (‚??Valley of the Wolves‚??) to the big screen with this controversial movie that was a box office hit at home and did well enough in Germany to win a Bogey Award.

Turkish super-agent Polat Alemdar (Necati Sasmaz) and his team head to northern Iraq where they work with local Sheikh Abdurrahman Halis Karuki (Ghassan Massoud) and his daughter Leyla (Berg√ľzar Korel) to take revenge against American agent Sam Marshall (Billy Zane) for the infamous hood event in a rather basic action plot.

The bland Necati Sasmaz ("Kurtlar vadisi") re-creates his T.V. Role to little effect alongside co-stars G√ľrkan Uygun, Kenan √?oban and Erhan Ufak whilst Ghassan Massoud and the beautiful Berg√ľzar Korel provide more compelling human interest and Diego Serrano, Gary Busey and Billy Zane chew through the scenery.

The film-makers complicate the basic story with references to all the most publicised excesses of the U.S. occupation of Iraq but this political commentary is completely blunted by mock-heroics, chest-thumping Turkish nationalism and cheap and tawdry production values that bely the fact that this is the most expensive Turkish movie produced to date.

‚??Proud of Turkey, now?‚??

This never amounts past propaganda. Suicide bombers are the scum of the earth. I pray to the one true God that Americans will never be seen in this way.

there should have been less heroism and more politics..

painful to watch, but that's the point, war isn't pretty and this movie shows that.

This movie was forbidden in Usa, Israel, Germany and England..... And now you ask yourself why, let me tell you why... WATCH THIS MOVIE!
This is not a movie you see everyday, 60 percent of what happens on screen is factually true. Its an action movie taking place in Iraq - a movie shot from a different view then the american point of view!
This movie paints a different picture much different for that Bushregime picture you have seen so far.
