Masked villain the Mask wants to destabilize the country and the world by carefully planned and executed acts of sabotage, but whatever he's trying to do, be it abducting scientists or flooding the market with forged money, masked superhero Spy Smasher and his loyal female sidekick Sevda always seem to interfere - so eventually, the Mask tells his second-in-command Black Glove plus his nightclub singer girlfriend Suzy to get rid of Spy Smasher ... however, nobody knows who Spy Smasher really is, nobody, so it is believed, but Detective Cavit, who is incidently Sevda's father (and who actually doesn't even have a clue who Spy Smasher is or that his own daughter is his sidekick), so Black Glove has him abducted ... but of course, Spy Smasher is on the case soon enough and frees him in no time.

At a later date, Spy Smasher himself and his comedy relief Bidik are kidnapped (and even unmasked), but this time it's Sevda who breaks them free.

Ultimately, Spy Smasher tracks Down the Mask to a nightclub and smashes most of the club with the police taking most of the Mask's men including Black Glove prisoner, only the Mask and Suzy manage to escape - and to make sure Spy Smasher doesn't do anything stupid, the Mask - who now turns out to be one of Sevda's suitors - takes Sevda's father Detective Cavit hostage. But as usual, Spy Smasher and Sevda are hot on the Mask's trail and it's not long before they raid his hideout ... but in th efinale, Sevda's dad is shot dead and Spy Smasher is about to be killed to ... when the authorities arrive to bring the whole thing to a happy ending ...

 

While certainly not one of world cinema's masterpieces (at least not in the conservative meaning of the word), Casus Kiran is quite simply a totally enjoyable piece of action cinema, freely mixing elements of US American movie serials from the 1930's and 40's (including the episodic buildup of the story, the action scenes and even the lead character himself) with elements of more contemporary espionage flicks (like the miniskirt-wearing babe-sidekick, Spy Smasher's fancy motorbike and the jazzy score). The result is a simplistic and slightly silly action flick no doubt, but it's also a piece of fast-paced entertainment that has this irresistibly innocent feel to it that's common to many movie serials of old - and to many Yilmaz Atadeniz films, a director who in many of his films has proven he has understood the mechanics of these serials and imported them to Turkey without any loss of impact.

Recommended !

 

After having spent an eternity in lost movie-limbo, this film has been made available to the film-loving public (in a limited edition) by the good folks from Onar Film.

Besides the movie with English or Greek subtitles and the obligatory photo gallery and trailers, their DVD also includes lead irfan Atasoy's filmography and director Yilmaz Atandeniz' biography, filmography, and an extensive interview. To put it short: This DVD's a must-have !
