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.

"The Turkish denial [of the Armenian Genocide] is probably the foremost example of historical perversion. With a mix of academic sophistication and diplomatic thuggery -- of which we at Macquarie University have been targets -- the Turks have put both memory and history into reverse gear."-- Prof. Colin Tatz, Director, Centre for Comparative Genocide Studies
