The Man who Saved the World
Benjamin Little and I watched this hidden gem tonight. The film which is also casually known as The Turkish Star Wars is one of the more bizarre movies I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen some pretty bizarre movies.
The film steals many scenes from Star Wars (Tie Fighters, X-Wings, Death Destroyers, Death Star, and even the Millennium Falcon make cameos). It also steals Star Wars themes and lays them over their own scenes, as well as a repeated usage of the Indiana Jones theme for most action scenes they filmed.
It is quite possibly one of the worst edited together movies I’ve ever seen. And that’s saying something, it really is. Between the shots of Star Wars battles which make zero sense to the plot in the movie to zero continuity in their own shots to dead characters reappearing alive and well for no reason–you get lost, you really get lost.
Needless to say. It’s bad. It’s really, really bad.
Therefore, I recommend it highly. I had so many great laughs watching this film. A truly, bizarre mixture of copyright infringement and zero filmmaking skills. A treasure for the ages.
Has anyone seen this film? What did you think? Sound off in the comments.
