not once is an opportunity missed for an up the skirt shot
Well, this is certainly something else! The seeming painfully low budget, the overlong fights and the non-involving beginning had me reaching for the remote very early on but gradually this won me over. Mr Inanc, who I had never even heard of, turns out to have helmed over 70 films and his male lead in this one, Cuneyt Arkin, has more than 250 films to his credit and is still working. The female lead, a rather attractive, if chunky, Emil Tumer, has not been so active but certainly excels in this. I suppose this looks a bit like Mad Max at times with the mixed bag that comprise the costumes and there are trucks and lots of explosions but this is really nothing more than a series of fights, fists, feet, knives, guns and hand grenades except it never quite runs the way we expect. There is a line of humour and for a brief moment when I switched from hating it to quite liking it, even wondered if it were supposed to be a comedy. But no and whilst not to be taken seriously it is pretty strong on the violent and sometimes bloody killings. One other thing, the girls wear very short skirts or tight shorts and not once is an opportunity missed for an up the skirt shot. Every time there is an uphill struggle, a rope to climb or an opponent to kick, where the camera would normally be expected to shy away here it revels in it. Very strong and effective ending ensures you cannot feel too bad about this non stop caper.
