Did You Know?

Trivia

The material from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) was spliced in from an anamorphic print, while this movie was shot in academy format, resulting in a non-correct aspect ratio during the Star Wars footage (e.g., the Death Star looks more like a Death Egg). See more »

Goofs

Bilgin'in Kizi and her brother are seen in captivity, but a short time later, they appear as spectators at Murat's arena fight. Their apparent escape from the Wizard's minions is never explained. See more »

Quotes

Murat: Begin to your famous whistle which no women can resist.
Ali: OK.
[Whistles]
Murat: You whistle it wrong.
Ali: Why?
Murat: Skeletons came instead of woman.

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.
