Another entertaining piece of trash from Turkey - hopefully more stuff like this becomes widely available
10 June 2008 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Turkish cinema is often talked about by trash and psychotronic movie fanatics but often rarely seen. This is because these completely delirious films often flagrantly defied copyright laws, so many Turkish films are ripoffs of other country's films and featured stolen music cues and special effects. While they're popular on the bootleg circuit, there's little chance the best efforts will become widely available. Mondo Macabro released two Turkish pop films onto a double-feature DVD, and while these efforts don't fully represent the country's insane tendencies to steal from American films, they're still pretty mind boggling in their own right. I mean, how many other films have you seen recently about a heroic Turk fighting a man-eating octopus and the villainous army which worships it?

There's far too many hilarious aspects to the film which need to be mentioned. A standby of Turkish cinema is the poorly choreographed fights and battle sequences, and "Tarkan vs. the Vikings" has its fair share. These "epic" duels usually make Dolemite look like Bruce Lee! The opening massacre in particular is hilarious, with no women or child spared. Also, typically of these Turkish films, there's some hillariously inappropriate musical cues, with "Also Sprach Zarathustra" being used to great effect in this one. Thank God this is out on DVD. Hopefully Mondo Macabro will release a follow-up "Turkish Pop Cinema" disc, as I'd love to see more of this stuff coming to DVD, especially judging from the mouth-watering clips included on the bonus documentary. (6/10)
