My Impressions on Gallipoli: The End of the Road

MY IMPRESSIONS ON GALLIPOLI: THE END OF THE ROAD

I had heard that this was a really good movie so I had high expectations when I went to the movie theatre. I wasn't disappointed. From the grand opening scene of the battleships bombarding the shore to the climactic ending. This movie had me hooked from start to finish. Filmed in Turkey with a cast consisting of both Turkish and international actors, I could tell immediately that much effort had been into the making of this film.

Set during the Gallipoli war, the story focuses on two characters, Muhsin and Hasan. These brothers enlist in the army and are sent to the front line. Filled with drama and action, I highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys watching war movies. Be aware that much of the dialogue is in Turkish with English subtitles however if that doesn't bother you then it's definitely worth a watch.
