ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
[Video Link] Continuing in our Turksploitation theme, a spectacularly awful fight scene from the Turkish film "Death Warrior." Previously: worst death scene ever. (thanks, Michelle Strait, via internalbleeding)
Turkish John Kerry to the rescue!
Fire cannot exist in the presence of John Kerry because he sucks all the oxygen out of the room.
am i hearing a bit of the beginning of Pink Floyd’s “Heart Beat, Pig Meat” off the Zabriski Point soundtrack? starts at 1:39.
i never knew the hoff was such a ninja.
Don’t know about that part at 1:39, but the opening snippet (that gets repeated later) is from Bond ’77 – a track from The Spy Who Loved Me.
It’s nice to see Hasselhoff is still finding work.
That’s actually Mr. Hasslehoff Sr.
I totally hear Heart Beat Pig Meat too, and yes it is that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPxeYv_Y8rc
Yep. I signed on to see if anyone else noticed. Good catch!
If you didn’t watch what happens in the last minute, you haven’t seen it at all.
holy crap. you’re 100% right. shit gets real in the last minute. lmao.
holy shit. What?
O.O i second this.
just when you think there’s nothing more to come of this fight…
So That’s where “Kill it, Kill it with Fire” comes from!
There were tears. OMG that ending was entertaining.
Whoa. Yes. That last minute is epic.
Bam. Thanks for the heads up.
Having watched it, I’m still not sure what I just watched. Did the rock (or was it a mis-shapen square bale) cause the fire?
STOP – DROP – AND ROLL
or just beat it with a really big stick I guess
Someone PLEASE make a fighting game out of this.
I thought it was from a video game. How else to explain the repetitive, mechanical movements?
Best death scene ever.
Best Venetian Snares track evar!
First I thought Tekken, then I saw your quip about Venetian snares. Exactly this.
Perhaps something off of Winnipeg is a Frozen Shithole? Or maybe detrimentalist?
I’m going to have to inflict those albums on my ears again now………I made a deal that I’d relisten to at least one album every time someone mentioned Venetian snares in passing. I figured it was a safe bet, since he’s the antithesis of commercial popularity.
Snares was the soundtrack to my high school experience. It wasn’t happy….. But at least I had a little control over the suffering, heh, kept me humble, to know someone else was more bitter and hateful than I was.
I was all set to come in and post a silly “I’ve heard worse breakcore/powernoise” comment. Well done.
I just thought it sounded like a broken drive-in movie speaker.
This awesome! Are you kidding?
can you imagine the foley session?
I also like the Roddy Piper fight scene in ‘They Live’, which just goes on for far too long. You can almost hear John Carpenter going, “Damn! This fucking movie is far too short. Lessee here….how about we make that fight scene excruciatingly long. That oughta get the sucker to be at least over an hour…..people can go out and buy more popcorn, use the bathroom, etc. and still not miss a thing!”
Best Benny Hill show episode ever.
It doesn’t help that they’re breaking the axis on 75% of the cuts.

My sincere hope is that the flaming corpse being beaten with a stick is that of the foley “artist”.
He’s such a badass, he even kills the 180 degree rule!
He is Cüneyt Arkın (aka George Arkın in international films). He is an epic action movie actor in 70s-80s of Turkey. He’s also starring in the movie known as the “Turkish Star Wars”. Which I strongly suggest to watch if you enjoyed the action above.
that movies has one of the best training montages EVER
You’re right, it’s amazing. Those rocks don’t know what hit them.
He has all the physicality of Pee-Wee Herman
“Turkish Star Wars”? Three words like deep fried, sugar frosted crack… I know it’s not going to make me a better person, but I really, really want it.
Man I want a job a sound editor for Turkish Films. It seems like you’re pretty much just allowed to add whatever sound effect you want to whatever scene.
Two people standing 10 paces apart without touching each other? Sure add “punching” sounds that bad snare beats from horrible drum and bass, that’ll work perfectly!
The last minute has lots of sounds from Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’
Why do they always leave trampolines lying around everywhere in these movies?
Also, explosive rocks and flammable ninjas.
O Xeni, you’ve made me so happy.
“They ranged all ovah…”
That looks like Cüneyt Arkin, star of Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam aka Turkish Star Wars – it’s certainly very similar to the fight scenes in that.
Yes, fight scenes like that mixed with lots of “borrowed” footage from Star Wars and music from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Moonraker, Ben-Hur, Flash Gordon, Battlestar Galactica, Planet of the Apes, Silent Running, Moses and The Black Hole.
What. The. Fuck…
Am I being a bit picky, or does squeezing 16:9 (or whatever) footage including bloody planets down to 4:3 make this the most pathetic rip-off in the history of ever?
Dude, stay down! Just stay down.
Wow! Chuck Norris and Jay Leno really don’t like each other very much.
If you can make arrows magically appear out of thin air, why even bother with hands-on fighting?
With a title like that how could I not watch it?
Never get between a David Hasselhoff look-alike and his cheeseburger.

I’m gonna put the audio from this on my next sexy mixtape bout six or seven songs in, after Chevy Van and Shockadelica (but before Escape (the pina colada song)) when girl is totally hot and ready to go, and then BOO-YAH!! If she can hang with that, wife material right there.
Beautiful day, isn’t it ?
That’s what happens when your Ninjitsu Dojo is the Star Wars Kid.
That’s good raw material right there. They can fix it in post.
I did have a problem remembering which one I was supposed to care about, but I especially liked the way the Foley artists were using clips of something that included a voice saying “chromo” or “gromo” or something like it, over and over and over and over, sometimes three or four times a second! And the way the fight sounds continued when they were just standing there! And the maneuver the one guy used where he turns into a burning bag of something and rings the other guy’s doorbell! And then the final plot twist, where we learn at the very end that they were closely related all along, tipping us off with just the word “SON.”
All hail Cuneyt Arkin!
This is the funniest bad movie ever!
It took me quite a while of searching and research, but I found this, which is *way* higher quality than the YouTube VHS rip. This is a DVBRip (Digital Video Broadcast Rip) from Turkish television. You can download the entire movie as three .RAR files that you need to reassemble into an .AVI file. No registration is required, just a captcha.
