Entertaining Turkish remake of DEATH WISH (1974)
30 March 2010 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Mild-mannered architect Orhan (Serdar Gökhan) goes all vigilante on Istanbul after his wife and sister (see, they changed it!) are attacked by a trio of street thugs (one looks like Telly Savalas, another like David Crosby). This is highly amusing to see if you are a fan of Bronson original as this is the same film only sped up to fill 80-minutes. There are scene-for-scene reenactments with a few fresh spins on the original material. For example, they change the ending so that Orhan gets revenge on the group who attacked his family. Let's just say Bronson didn't pitch a guy out of a fifth story window (yet). Onar Films released this one on DVD and, if you are a fan of the subgenre, it is definitely worth picking up. There is a nice 25-minute documentary on Turkish revenge films that will leave you sad because, like the Mondo Macabro docs, you realize 95% of the movies they show clips from you will never get a chance to see.
