Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam seems to have been made using scraps off the floor from the Star Wars editing room, and tattered remains from materials used on the set of Yokai Monsters. This film shamelessly robs footage from star wars battle scenes and splices them with footage of hilariously cheesy fight sequences to produce a truly bizarre cinematic gem. Continuity and common sense were obviously not issues of main concern when this film was being conceptualized, scripted, and filmed. The action scenes contain some of the most unconventional editing techniques I’ve ever seen. Jump cuts, odd angles, and chaotic editing, give the fight sequence an edge, making them very entertaining and extremely different from anything in Star Wars or Starcrash. At first I expected this to be similar to the classic star wars knock off, Starcrash, but this film is far stranger and much more entertaining. Our hero’s Krate chop their way through zombies, monsters, ninjas, robots, and an evil wizard. I’m admittedly not well versed in Turkish cinema, I’m constantly learning about new titles and new directors, but this has got to be one of the best cult classics I have ever seen out of Turkey.
