Quite good

Personally I found this a good watch. Through it's message, one that's not often presented as elegantly, well worth the time; even though this movie might have flaws some won't be able to overlook.

I have to say the 'american acting' was quite bad, which made the story the first part of the film fuels on kinda fall through. For example: Robert Patrick's character was definitely not fleshed out enough to be made believable, presented overly prejudiced to be portrayed rather fickle in the end. On the other hand, the message about belief is clear but subtly presented and quite beautifully done. As the story progresses the ending turns out quite fulfilling.

If you can look past the acting/lines on occasion this is well worth the watch. Recommended.

Nuanced Analysis of Extremism

NEW TORK'TA BES MINARE starts off in familiar fashion, as two Turkish cops travel to New York in pursuit of an alleged terrorist from Turkey who has been living in New York for thirty-seven years. There they encounter a group of FBI agents with innate prejudices against foreigners, and Muslims in particular. The two cops are drawn into a complex world, presided over by Islamic convert Danny Glover, where they seem apparently powerful to act. As the film unfolds, however, so the story becomes more complex. Hadji (Haluk Bilginer), ostensibly the prime suspect in the case - whose capture the Turkish cops are entrusted with - turns out to be completely different from what we, as the audience, expect of him. Director Mahsun Kirmizigul's film turns out to be a meditation on extremism, irrespective of religious difference: some Americans, as well as Turks, seem incapable of adopting either a moderate or a tolerant point of view. The film has a surprise ending, where we discover the true reason why Hadji went to America, and what kind of a person he actually was. Both noble yet self-aware, he remains a figure to admire in a complex world. NEW YORK'TA BES MINARE is an unexpectedly complex work, tautly filmed and grippingly told.

Dany Glover bro, are you out of money, did you act in this movie?

At that time, there were "Araz" courses in Baku. Later on, the courses were closed due to his ties to Fethullah Gulen.

At that time, I was going to this course to prepare for the university exams, when the summer came and the classes were over, they used to go to our Azerbaijan's Mingachevir city to rest. It was good times, one day they made us watch this movie in a movie theater-style place. I think I understand why, even then these topics were used as propaganda in "Araz" courses. The movie was interesting back then, but now I know how bad it was. Dany Glover bro, are you out of money, did you act in this movie?
