Several critics criticized the film for perpetuating the denial of the Armenian Genocide. In his review for Variety Dennis Harvey writes, “[In] this primarily Turkish-funded production, the historical, political, ethnic and other intricacies — not to mention that perpetual elephant in the room, the Armenian Genocide, which commenced in 1915 — are glossed over in favor of a generalized ‘Whattaya gonna do… war is bad’ aura that implies conscience without actually saying anything.”

In his review of the film for Slant Magazine, Keith Watson writes, “More conspicuous than The Ottoman Lieutenant’s rote melodrama is the way the film elides the concurrent genocide of ethnic Armenians by Ottoman forces, a historical reality which the Turkish government continues to deny to this day.”, while critic Roger Moore called The Ottoman Lieutenant “a botched love-triangle romance set against a revisionist account of the Turkish Armenian Genocide.”
