truly a C-movie
19 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie is truly cult and its pretty funny.I think its one of the very few turkish sci-fi movies. If a movie is good then its nice to watch it. If a movie is bad then you should not watch it at all. But if a movie is too bad then it makes more fun than a good movie. This is one of those movies, called B-movies. Perhaps this is a C-movie. It has very funny scenes. The space scenes are all stolen from star wars. They are sometimes too bright and sometimes too dark. They show scenes of star wars and they loop those scenes every 15 seconds. Sometimes they go backwards. The monsters are pretty funny too. Especially the big robot which had a big yellow ambulance lamp on his head. It was moving slowly around during the whole movie, saying something like "catch the earthlings! kill the earthlings!" the guy who was making the robot voice was probably holding his nose while talking to sound like a robot since they were not able to make digital sound fx. The story is cool too. I did not know that there are muslims on other planets =)
