A feature film titled "The Promise," starring Christian Bale was released in April of 2017. But even before the release of the film, Turkish message boards lit up with apparently an organized attempt to disparage the film with bad ratings and reviews. This was covered by the Washington Post among other news outlets.
Before the movie was released, there were thousands of 1-star ratings on IMDB with reviews that were clearly politically and ideologically driven most of which had very little to do with the movie. Most of these particular reviews were from users who only had one review...ever, many of whom were registered on IMDB just recently. The facts converge to demonstrate the desperate attempt of the Turkish propaganda machine in yet another attempt to silence or malign the truth.
Here's what you can do to fight the propaganda - go watch the film and leave the rating and review the movie actually deserves.

"If nations are allowed to commit genocide with impunity, to hide their guilt in a camouflage of lies and denials, there is a real danger that other brutal regimes will be encouraged to attempt genocides. Unless we speak today of the Armenian genocide and unless the Government recognizes this historical fact, we shall leave this century of unprecedented genocides with this blot on our consciences."-- Caroline, Baroness Cox, House of Lords
