Death Wish Instanbul'da
5 March 2010 | by rcoates-661-22249See all my reviews

Cellat, the Turkish version of Death Wish, sticks fairly close plotwise to the template of the American film, with some scenes and bits of dialogue being almost identical. However, it also deviates from its inspiration at times and is at its most interesting and valuable in these little moments, providing lurid snapshots of a place and a culture.

Expectedly, and true to the heroes of Turkish genre cinema, the vigilante in this film is significantly more sadistic than his stateside counterpart and devises amusing means of dispatching his targets at the end. Along the way there's a Turkish funeral, a very welcome bellydance, and distinctive, somewhat exotic music (played over and over again at intervals).

As film-making, Cellat isn't special. The acting is heavily stylized, to put it diplomatically, and the sound editing is slapdash, with music cues cut off abruptly. Don't expect a high definition picture, either. My rating of 7, which may seem generous, is partly reflective of the fun of having discovered another obscure and idiosyncratic movie from the other side of the planet.
