Trivia

The production team decided to market the film primarily to older children, and to cut the running time by about 1 hour because the studio was concerned that the 2-1/2 hour length of the original cut--far longer than the typical 75-minute Turkish film--would hurt the film's market potential. This resulted in the film's disjointed and frenetic pacing, its emphasis on action, and its lack of on-screen plot exposition, with major plot points only being explained in voiceover.

The film was reportedly embraced eagerly by its youthful target market, and was very successful in Turkey. See more »

Goofs

During the cantina fight, Murat hits the red fluffy monster in the face and opens the gap between the head and body of the monster costume, briefly revealing the stuntman's neck. See more »

Quotes

Ali: It doesn't seem it will finish, they are still coming, let's go over them.
Murat: That's what suit us, we must go beyond the space speed, be ready to welcome arrivers.
Ali: These are too ugly, it would be better if some girls come with mini skirts.

Unbelievable!
25 January 2004 | by canorsSee all my reviews

Definitely one movie to watch. One scene is about, a pilot saying in a spacecraft saying to another pilot that he is increasing altitude. What altitude? You are in space. There are much more funny mistakes and lack of technology in the movie. The bad thing is they use Star Wars scenes again and again. The producers of the movie is not aware of copyrights I guess.
