For the events that led to this movie see Kilink
Istanbul, which is recaptured in quite some detail at the
beginning of this film ...
To get his own private death ray, the skull-mask wearing Kilink (Yildirim
Gencer) has abducted professor Cemil (Muzaffer Tema), his daughter Gül (Pervin Par)
and Orhan's sister Oya to his own private island, only Orhan (Irfan Atasoy),
a friend of the professor and the fiancé of his daughter, has escaped his
captors ... and what nobody knows, he is secretly Superhero/Superman/Ucan
Adam/Flying Man, a superhero who thwarts Kilink's plans every step along
the way. All Orhan has to do to become Superhero is to say Shazam
(quite like Captain
Of course, Orhan has soon found out where Kilink's island is ... but a
tad late, because by threatening the life of Gül, Kilink has forced
professor Cemil to complete the deathray, and now Kilink chooses Orhan's
boat approaching the island as a target for some test-shooting - and even
if Orhan abandons ship on time, soon enough he is taken captive by
Kilink's men, and thrown into a cell with the others ... and only when
they sleep can he turn into Superhero, force his friends' way out and give
Kilink and his men their just desserts.
Kilink though escapes, and when Superhero catches up with him, knocks
him out and unmasks him - he realizes it's not Kilink at all whom he has
stopped but Kilink's chief scientist professor Maxwell (Feridun Colgecen).
Soon enough, Kilink is up to his old tricks again and kills an Austrian
Princess to steal her diamonds ... but Superhero manages to track him down
once again, fight him atop a rooftop and finally push him to his death ...
but was that the end of Kilink ... ?
A third Kilink film, Kilink Soy ve Öldür/Kilink Strip and
Kill would follow later in 1967.
Though the second part of the film (that featuring the Austrian
Princess and Kilink's demise) has been destroyed long ago, it's safe to
say that what I said about Kilink
in Istanbul also applies here: Kilink vs Superman is not
great cinema, but a fun ride for everybody who can accept superheroes and
supervillains and who has a certain fondness for old serials, definitely
the main inspiration for this film - and indeed many of director/producer
Yilmaz Atadeniz' films. You might on one hand detest the film for its
stupidity, but on the other hand the child in you will watch it with big
eyes, constantly asking "... and what happens then ?"
