Doctor Demetrius (Altan Günbay) has developed a machine that can blow up all the nuclear powerplants of Turkey at once, to literally wipe the country off the map - and since he is evil, that's exactly what he's planning to do. There is just one man standing in his path: Super agent Golden Boy (Göksel Arsoy), who has long been the bane of Demetrius' organisation, and who is slowly zeroing in on him. Demetrius though knows Golden Boy's one weakness: Women. And thus he sends out beautiful Helen to seduce him and lure him into a trap - and successfully, too. But Demetrius has forgotten one weakness of all women: Golden Boy. And thus, Helen sets Golden Boy free, even if that costs her own life in the process. At Helen's funeral, Golden Boy and Demetrius (in drag) meet again and soon battle it out, which ends with Golden Boy falling through a trap door into a cell where Demetrius already keeps Golden Boy's girlfriend (Sevda Nur), to whom he has revealed all details of his evil plot for some reason. Knowing what Demetrius is about to do, Golden Boy has no problems escaping his prison, tracking down Demetrius' underwater headquarters, and blowing them up just before Demetrius is able to erradicate Turkey.


Generally considered as teh Turkish answer to James Bond, Golden Boy is a surprisingly entertaining movie that owes about as much to the serials of old (always a great source of inspiration for Turkish pulp cinema) as it does to the British superagent. And thus, Golden Boy doesn't even try to look as posh as any James Bond-movie, instead it is fast paced and packed with action, shootouts, fistfights (including one where the villain's in drag), whippings, comicbook-style sadism and the like. And while all these elements do not automatically make an entertaining movie, they do so here thanks to a directorial effort that's as light-footed as it's fast paced and a script that's enjoyably do the point and doesn't waste too much time with subplots and the like.


After having spent an eternity virtually unknown to movie-lovers in the West, this film has been made available to the film-loving public (in a limited edition) by the good folks from Onar Films .

Besides the movie with English or Greek subtitles and the obligatory biographies, filmographies, photo gallery and trailers, their DVD also includes a movie poster, an interview with Altan Gunbay and an article on Turkish Espionage Cinema. To put it short: This DVD's a must-have!
