The "Turk 182" tag is loosely inspired by the real-life tag of "TAKI 183", one of New York City's first and most famous graffiti writers. See more »

[about Turk 182]
There are two theories. The first is that this is an organized conspiracy. The other more bizarre theory is that this is the work of one man - Superman, apparently!

I saw this one a couple years ago on Cinemax, and didn't think it was half bad.
Sure, the plot dragged at times, but how can you hate Turk 182? The film makers had good intentions.
Basically, the plot revolves around a guy (Timothy Hutton) and his brother (Robert Urich) who is injured trying to save children from a fire. Because the guy was intoxicated at the time, the city refuses to foot his medical bills, regardless of the fact that he saved these poor kids from certain death. So, the Timothy Hutton character heckles the mayor by covering the city of New York in graffiti (long story).
Overall, I thought it was a cool idea that was, for the most part, well executed by the cast and crew. So, if you can't find anything good on TV, check out Turk 182.
Zimmerman flew and Tyler knew! :-)
