Trivia

The reason for the confusing plot and lack of continuity in this film is as simple as it is appalling: It was made by using footage from another Cetin Inanc / Cüneyt Arkin collaboration, Son Savasci (1982). For Ölüm Savasçisi, the filmmakers used half the footage of Son Savasci, changed the order of the scenes and added a lot of unused footage, fill-in scenes, plus a few scenes stolen from foreign productions, to give it the look of a different movie. However, Son Savasci was more or less a straightforward film with a linear story line, whereas Ölüm Savasçisi suffered from choppy editing and incoherent plot. Most of all, it suffered from not being written and shot as an actual movie, but being pieced together by using leftovers. See more »

The last Turkish action hero
8 May 2006 | by sanliizzetSee all my reviews

"The death warrior" is one of the most absurd and awful movies of Turkish action actor Cuneyt Arkin (also known as George Arkin)and Cetin Inanc (director) duo. As a matter of fact the movie has similarities with the other Arkin & Inanc movie "Turkish star wars" as the concept is the same: "Copy a popular Hollywood action movie, replace the heroes with Turkish ones, sprinkle some Turkish philosophy and jokes, pump some nationalism...." here you go! The director never bothered with the details as to how the American police force members and Turkish counterparts are able to speak so fluently with each other, why the Americans did not call for help from a Japanese detective instead of a Turkish one, how some 30 ninjas appeared out of nowhere....and whey they are killed they get disappeared...etc...

Apparently the movie is aimed at the lowest grade Turkish audience and they never thought that in the future their work of art would ever be remembered....
