Not since "Turkish Star Wars" has a film made my jaw drop from being so confused
28 December 2006 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Not since "Turkish Star Wars" has a film made my jaw drop from being so confused. This film is likely to give the viewer a headache with the sheer ineptitude of what is presented on screen. This is similar to what a perverted yet naive fourth grader would devise, not to mention just as intelligent. The film is so bad yet so bizarre I couldn't turn my eyes away, no matter how much I wanted to. It has a badness that is beyond surrealism. The film is so alien to western audiences with its complete bastardization of our beloved comic superheroes. Despite how bad it is, the film never becomes boring.

Picture this: Apparently while vacating in Istanbul, Peter Parker was bitten by another spider, this one turning him into a total a-hole with a severe misogynistic streak. So who do we call in? Captain America and Santo the Mexican Wrestler! As bizarre as Santo's Mexican films were, they never reached the heights of lunacy seen here. All of this is unauthorized of course, as is the inclusion of a Frank Sinatra song at particularly bizarre moments. This film is, granted, not for everybody (few will probably be fortunate enough to track down a copy), but those interested by what they read or with any interest in the most berserk fringes of world cinema, dig in! As with all of Turkey's ripoff movies, the style can begin to wear a bit thin towards the end, but its so bizarre and unique its worth tracking down. (5/10)
