Did You Know?


The reason for the confusing plot and lack of continuity in this film is as simple as it is appalling: It was made by using footage from another Cetin Inanc / Cüneyt Arkin collaboration, Son Savasci (1982). For Ölüm Savasçisi, the filmmakers used half the footage of Son Savasci, changed the order of the scenes and added a lot of unused footage, fill-in scenes, plus a few scenes stolen from foreign productions, to give it the look of a different movie. However, Son Savasci was more or less a straightforward film with a linear story line, whereas Ölüm Savasçisi suffered from choppy editing and incoherent plot. Most of all, it suffered from not being written and shot as an actual movie, but being pieced together by using leftovers. See more »

The best movie ever.
7 November 2007 | by (Everywhere) – See all my reviews

This movie is most likely the best I've ever seen. Why? Because even though I didn't understand one single word they said during this entire movie (except "telephone"), I still laughed so hard I started crying. Every single part of this movie is just over the top and utterly ridiculous. The sound basically consists of stolen FX from old and crappy Chinese kung-fu movies, which are then looped over and over, often together, to create an unrivaled cacophony. Even in scenes without intended sound, there are popping and crackling noises. (Also, Cüneyt Arkın owns Chuck Norris, even with his hands tied behind his back.)
