Editorial Reviews

After an unsuccessful and bloody raid in Istanbul, two Turkish anti-terrorist agents are sent to New York City on a mission to capture a notorious terrorist known only as ''Dejjal'' (Arabic for Anti-Christ). Working with the FBI and NYPD, the agents orchestrate the arrest of a suspect who may or not be the notorious Dejjal, but when events escalate, the foreign agents must take things in their own hands to avert disaster.

The story has a couple of surprise turns to it. Action runs through the movie while at the same time you get to see an angle of the Muslim culture that does not get into the daily news. A muslim leader who lives in NYC is identified by the Turkish secret service as a wanted terrorist in Turkey. So the Turkish police put a call out to the FBI to apprehend the muslim leader. Then all of the action begins as the Turkish secret police along with the FBI try to apprehend and hold the leader until they can get him deported to Turkey. Then the surprise turns in the story begin. Watch it! You will find that the time spent watching the movie will be worth your while. And don't forget when it comes to enforcing purity of any religion, purity has already been destoyed and all that we are left with is hate clothed in self right-ness.

This film (retitled from Five Minarets in New York) attempts to dramatize the complexities of life in the secular Turkish state and the difficulty the West has in distinguishing between ordinary Muslims, devout Muslims, and Islamic terrorists. It's a worthy effort, but somewhat melodramatic, and many nuances (radicals wear Shiite garb, the main character is a Sufi called Hadji, ethnic differences between the Turkish detectives) are largely lost on Western audiences. Haluk Biliger makes a valiant attempt to portray a peaceful devout Muslim caught up in circumstances beyond his control, and Gina Gershon gives a creditable performance as a Catholic Christian married to a Muslim. Danny Glover and Robert Patrick are particularly wooden in stereotypical roles as a Black Muslim and an antiterrorist government agent. Mahsun Kirmizigül and Mustafa Sandal portray two Turkish detectives doing a difficult job out of their element in New York City. The depiction of police operations within Turkey is not convincing.

Originally released in 2010 as "Five Minarets in New York".

In Turkey there is a major terrorist raid. Meanwhile in the US, FBI agent David Becker (Robert Patrick) arrests the calmly praying Hadji Gumus in his home. Gumus fits the description of "Dejjal" (Anti-Christ) an internationally wanted terrorist who has lived in the US with no criminal record. Hadji's wife Maria (Gina Gershan) is alarmed by the arrest and doesn't believe the charges. Danny Glover plays Marcus who wants to prevent the deportation.

We quickly discover Becker is a man with conservative views, one that might be considered anti-Islam as he has to deal with two Turkish agents who come to NYC to pick up the prisoner. When Danny Glover orchestrates an improbable rescue of Hadji, the two Turkish agents (Mahsun Kirmizigül, Mustafa Sandal) go rogue to find him. Is Hadji a terrorist or do they have the wrong guy? That is the question put to the viewer as the plot develops and takes a twist.

The movie contains killing, good blood splatter with head shot, torture, rocket launchers, flame throwers, and three men in Muslim woman's garb who whip off their top layer and start firing with automatic weapons. The flames coming from the weapons is CG. More drama than action-thriller.

2 MF bombs. No sex or nudity. 3 1/2 stars

Two Turkish cops are on the trail of a terrorist with several plot twists. Gina Gershon & Danny Glover have roles that you normally wouldn't expect them in. A nice change of pace so to speak and not just an "action explosion" film. Above average with an intelligent plot.

I thought it was going to be a 'who done it' type of movie. The innocent guy gets accused and then gets killed in the end. Seriously? i wanted to slit my wrists by the end. I kept waiting for some sort of twist to the movie. Nope. No twist. Just melodramatic.
