Bizarre schlock epic in which Turkish barbarian Tarkan takes on an army of day-glo vikings who worship a giant inflatable octopus. Exactly as amazing as it sounds.
dogs' flashbacks for the way!
Well - let's just say it: Kartal Tibet is no Barry Prima. Even so, this one is priceless - "vikings" mostly clad in bathmats and car seats (with the requisite horned helmets), two dogs named Kurt, baby stabbing, several "ax in the head moments", several sex scenes, a viking orgy, the pit of 12 to 16 deadly snakes, and the amazing inflatable giant octopus monster.
One totally bizarre thing is: music directly cribbed from other movies (2001, Once Upon A Time In The West, etc.)
I have to say: Tarkan (the hero) gets a really big build-up, but seems to get his ass kicked by six or seven vikings throughout the story. Some "Army of One".
Una joya turca, de esas que tan malas son divertidas. Inolvidables vestuarios confeccionados con tapetes, una banda sonora cual mas variopinta, pelucas y bigotes postizos al por mayor, un guion lleno de cliches y lugares comunes, con unas escenas de salvajadas vikingas muy entretenidas y lo mejor... el pulpo gigante devorahombres!
This has everything that a bad (in a good way) movie needs. Vikings with fake beards. Maidens in skimpy outfits. Terrible fake blood. The best part is the battle with the octopus at the bottom of the swimming pool...erm, I mean "ocean".
Turkey's greatest Hun warrior tackles Asterix-esque Vikings dressed in colourful, barely credible costumes. Oh and there's a crying dog too. What's not to like?
Ehka tama pitaisi katsoa tosi hilpeassa mielentilassa...
Pretty awesome. Definitly a must see. Certainly a bad movie but it's a lot of fun.
Things I learned from this movie: The vikings were the scourge of the Mediterranean, held Roman-like orgies, employed hot topless, knife-throwing executioners, communicated with giant octopi, which they used also used for ritual executions. The only man that can stop their hedonistic orgy of blood, tentacles, and little winged helmets, is a blonde, medieval Turkish James Bond meets Conan, raised by wolves and taken in by the Huns?
you should see the rest of the series. Top quality! But the octopus monster is one of the classics of Turkish Nationalist cinema :P
