SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS
If We were in the turkish government we declare war to Hollywood and American media!
Because here we are facing an international boycott in a cover-up
culture that makes this film does not appear in any "Superman". We add
fuel to the fire: this is not even the first turkish movie on this
subject that had previously inspired in 1969 and in 1971 two others
The Turkish version of the hero with the "S" on his chest, back to us
through the network and especially thanks to the reprinting of an Greek
Production enterprise "Onar Films" that re-mastered it and added extras.
"Donuyor Supermen" is one of those movies that fill with joy the lovers
of a certain cinema "off." One of those chapters where everything is
very traditional, adjusted badly and leaning against a history for
dummies. A masterpiece.
It must be said, however, for the benefit of this version, if Clark
Kent has to be a little 'nerd, the one that is the closest to this
description it's the turkish Tayfun Demir (literally Steel Typhoon)
that beats by far his fellow Americans with all due respect to
Kunt Tulga the director was active in the seventies, and already
"famous" for the turkish Tarzan , he generates this movie after seeing
"Superman II" but this film is not a remake, but is a separate chapter
of what could be the brother fell into the Mediterranean of the famous
hero of "Smallville."
The beginning is still the same. Tayfun lives in a country house with
the adoptive parents that one day reveal his true identity, in a very
melodramatic scene. Then we find Tayfun, who known that he is a
superman, as journalist at the "Dunya" a shabby local newspaper, where
he works, and in which we find the Lois Lane of the story. The
beautiful girl is called Alev and is also the daughter of a famous
professor who has studied and found a meteorite called "Kryptonite"
that could solve the world's energy problems. An aide instead felt
thanks to a machine (actually a projector ...), that the stone can turn
anything into gold.
This gives rise to conflicts, which are ground between car chases,
special effects and a non-existent acting impassive witness a long
series of kidnappings foiled by all "Supermen." The one of Alev, that
of a professor and finally even to the detriment of the poor girl.
Far from the rays, from incredible flying, the turkish hero limited to
work things out with big fights vaguely credible and with sound
oversized compared to what you see .
Rarely our Tayfun show his super powers. Only in two cases, one in
which with "x-ray" he sees a woman in lingerie and another in which he
stopped two trains, but they are visibly braking. He had also a
super-hearing and a flair to understand that something is going to
happen, but nothing short of superhuman.
The Supermen turkish goes down in history for being a true
revolutionary, we like to see her so, as confessing publicly to the
world his true identity, he leaving the beautiful Alev and going in
search of his home planet (which is still exploded ...). Remarkable.
Things that his americans "cousins" would not dream of doing.
Commitment to give us something decent is huge, the result a bit 'less,
but this film is a must. The best is with the scenes in flight, in
which a doll, probably the "Ken" of Barbie, is suspended in the air
with images that slide back and with the air that moves the mantle.
Also to underline the significant "indifference" of copyright. Tulga
catche for the soundtrack a bit from all, apart from the "Superman"
even American "007" Ennio Morricone and Giorgio Moroder. A cult.
