I think if there is a man who can rescue the world he is Cuneyt Arkin and this film shows us how to rescue the world. If somebody is thinking that the world is not a good place and its being worth day by day and wants to rescue us than he must watch this film. And if there is somebody who says bad things about this film than i can say him go and watch MATRIX. than u will see that film is a copy of Dunyayi Kurtaran Adam. The character Noe is a simple version of Cuneyt Arkin. This film is better than MATRIX to me. and also this film tells us many things about life.
