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.
