A.R.O.G: Superior sequel
8 January 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

A.R.O.G is the sequel to G.O.R.A (2004) a Turkish mega budget sci-fi comedy and follows on from it really quite well.

Our hero Arif is back safe and sound at home with his cosmic love Ceku, but Logar isn't done with him and he finds himself sent back in time one million years!

Considering that G.O.R.A was Turkey's biggest movie to date and the amount of time and effort that went into it I wasn't impressed at all. I found it to be an unfunny two hours of silliness and campness, so I expected the absolute pits from A.R.O.G.

To my surprise it is better, but not by much. Unlike the first it has lost most of the campness and more jokes hit the mark.

The first movie was a standard sci-fi affair, all set in space with the usual tropes so writing A.R.O.G in this way was a huge gamble. This is barely sci-fi, the majority of the movie is set in the stone age so it's a very different creature altogether (And personally that suited me better).

Sure it's still silly and most of the jokes are terrible but I found myself cringing considerably less so that's something, right?

With most of the original cast, following on directly from the previous movie and the same "Charm" I'd say despite my low rating this is an accomplishment. I'm not the demographic, but I do see the appeal.

The Good:

Cem Yilmaz's ability to play two very different characters without me even realizing it was him!

Some funny moments

The Bad:

Too much western pop culture, it feels forced

Still plain silly
