Mehmet Ali Erbil,
A silly, Turkish, Bollywood style adventure, well worth a watch.
It's silly, it's quirky, it's Turkish and I like it.
You cannot take this movie seriously, if you do, you will find it lacking in several areas: Shrek did a much better fairy tale parody, there are other adventure movies out there that are more exciting, the acting is sub par, and the special effects are pretty bad.
Much of this is probably due the film being Turkish, as such it has very little of that Hollywood grandeur, but it also has very little of that Hollywood smugness, which is actually a merit compared to American counterparts such as the horrendous Epic Movie. In Keloglan, the jokes do not interrupt the plot but instead flow with it, not to mention, they are actual jokes, not just references to better movies. Further more, the actors play it straight, like it was a serious film which makes the jokes more subtle, and ultimately funnier. Congrats Turkey, you have mastered the art of parody.
Despite the jokes being nicely woven into the plot, the movie is, like I said, rather badly made. However if you see it for what it is, a Bollywood style, fairy tale parody adventure flick, full of silly moments, it is actually pretty good. It does meander about a bit too much near the end but other than that I find it really rather enjoyable.
