The first sequel to KILINK ISTANBUL'DA picks up right where the 1st installment left off. Superman manages to locate Kilink's hideout on a remote island where his fiancé and her father are being held behind bars. Meanwhile, Kilink's scientists finally manufacture a lethal destructive canon-like weapon that is able to blast away even portions of mountains. Superman arrives there not flying but as an ordinary man and after becoming a target for the weapon is captured and locked up with his woman and his future dad-in-law. Of course, Superman triumphs but, fortunately, Kilink gets away. The film ends with a separate episode that has nothing to do with the island and the weapon. This time Kilink murders a rich foreign woman and steals her jewels. But Superman is still around for the final conflict. Sadly, the part with this conflict was destroyed decades ago. At least, the producers saved many stills from this segment and incorporated them in the film together with a narration on the ... Written by
"Shajam!" Thank heavens Onar films released this on DVD because it ties up one hell of a cliffhanger from KILINK IN ISTANBUL. Running only 50 minutes (with the first 20 being a recap of ISTANBUL), this one features more of everyone's favorite criminal mastermind Kilink. He keeps seducing the ladies who apparently love kissing a skull mask. We finally get to see his death ray in action (its a big flamethrower that blows stuff up) and even get some comedy relief this time around with a knucklehead boat captain. They flying man with a big "S" on his shirt (copyrights be damned) is back and everyone is still clueless to his true identity. No one even suspects a thing when he shows up in a locked cell. When people ask where his alter ego went, he merely says, "Ah, I think I saw some of Kilink's guards take him away." He is quick on his feet. A section of the film (the climatic duel on top of a building) seems to have been lost and is recreated via a series of stills and voice-over. Strangely, this adds to the films charm. John Barry supplies most of the score. =)
