Mr. Engin Altan you are by far one of the most brilliant and talented actors I have ever witnessed. I am an American who have watched several of your movies, but Resurrection Ertugrul is by far the best. I have watched it 15 times and never get bored, because there is no other movie to exceed it. I hope you make another magnificent movie such as Ertugrul and it makes it’s way to the American screen . Please continue your brilliant and excellent acting skills, because you are such a fantastic and handsome actor. I am patiently waiting for another movie. Oh, by the way, you definitely have a million dollar smIle.

couldn’t stop watching the series, loved the cast and their acting. Very addictive series, sad that it reached the end with a wedding and leaving for going to war. Loved Engine Altan such a handsome actor. Turgut Alp, Bambsy, Dogan and everybody, you all have done an amazing job that made the series so loved around the world. congratulation to all.
I am an 80 yr old handicapped Scottish woman living in Ct. USA since 1959. I saw on Netflix your show and decided to see what it was all about. Boy, I loved it and have been watching the 5 episodes for close to a month and now nearing the end as of today.you and your cast members were magnificent. The acting, scenary, costumes, horses were fantastic. Now what do I watch once this ends? I had a soft spot for Bamsi. The rest of you and the fighting scenes were so realistic. My eyes have been glued to the story if your heritage. Bless all of you for this eye opening story
Fantastic acting throughout the series, great history and story telling. Can’t wait for season 6.
Loved Engin in My fathers violin and ETRUGAL. Unbelievable talent, training, beautiful looks. I’m in love❤️❤️
Brilliant series, addictive viewing, superb characters and acting. A great insight into Turkish history.
It’s been amazing to watch this series, for a glimpse of Turkish history and customs which all feels so authentic and engrossing story lines. Every aspect has drawn me in but what’s been exceptional has been the acting, the quiet dignity and strength of Ertugrul and his Alps with Stella performances from so many of the cast. I’m a 67 Yr British woman and it’s been a joy to watch, Thankyou
Best series I’ve ever watched. I’ve watched it twice Elgin is fantastic. Hated that the series ended, wish down the road more will be added ❤️❤️❤️
I Love engin Altan duzyatan a lot
Best series I’ve ever watched. I love the true history events behind this epic series. My house work goes on hold for a couple of hours. I would take a 30 minutes break after watching for 2 hours. I have highly recommended Resurrection to my friends. All the Kayi Tribe crew are amazing. Hayme Halime, and Asiylan are very strong characters. My grand daughter watched it with me. She will flick on Netflix and say, Let’s watch Etugrul, Nana.
