Turkish Movie Dag II

Post by Richard B. » Thu Jun 07, 2018 3:35 pm

Mountain II (Dag II) is one Sky Premier now under the title Brothers in Arms Inturkish and kurdish with subtitles

Watched it this afternoon and you all know i have little interest in ultra modern warfare, but hey a war movie is a war movie right?

A team of Turkish special forces is sent into Northern Iraq/Kurdistan to rescue a female photo journalist captured by ISIS.

The film flicks back and fore giving you insight into the characters and the units training, the combat is violent and bloody, the acting pretty good.

I won`t spoil the movie, but lets just say the unit is caught between their mission and their conciences.

The final battle is very "Private Ryan", but if you look past that it is actually a better film than SPR in my opinion.

Anyway highly recommended :D

Purely as a damsel in distress in this instance, though both female characters are solid and well written/acted ;)

I happen to like girls anyway :lol:

Interesting in that I watched it yesterday but thought it a bit formulaic and rated it below SPR. I would have said there are some serious plot deficiencies that are there only for the sake of the story.
If you are such a great writer make me want to logon and respond! [Adapted]

This type of movie always end up trying to be Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven so yes formulaic.

However, i actually found myself invested and actually caring for the characters in this one (i didn`t care a jot in SPR) Maybe because this movie wasn`t about the Yank winning WW2 all by themselves?? :)
