Dünyayi kurtaran adam (The Man Who Saves the World) (Turkish Star Wars) Reviews
The actual filmed footage however was just insulting to the eyes.
Although, I do like the title credits music, it's so glorious, I want it as my ringtone.
All right story - stupid and fitting as it blends the weird with the known story of "Star Trek". It's a cool character that "Turist" guy. I dug him. The shapeshift thing is also a treat. "Italian Spiderman" comes to mind here - production-wise, but I liked that one a whole lot better. I believe I lost out of much fun caused by translation issues here.
A foreign cult classic that's just simple fun, but I was hoping for more.
4.5 out of 10 salt grains
"interpretation" of Star Wars is possibly one of the "best" bad movies ever made.
It may be corny due to weird costumes, silly acting, and poor picture quality, but I like it: I find 'Dunyayi Kurtaran Adam' ('The Man Who Saves The World') as a fun example of Turkish science fiction and film plagiarism. Why? There are clips of 'Star Wars' bootlegged into the filming sequences, thus earning the film its popularly known name, 'Turkish Star Wars'; not to mention it borrows soundtracks from films like 'Raiders Of The Lost Ark' and 'Flash Gordon'. Oddly enough, the desert planet that the heroes landed on reminds me a lot of Tatooine. When 'TSW' was released in 1982, Turkey was in political turmoil and foreign films were not easily acquired and were often remade with a Turkish setting and cast. I know there are plenty of more Turkish versions of American films but this 'Star Wars'-based film is so memorable that I would like to see it again.
