->''"Yes, the movie explicitly lists out two Turkish dudes as Earth's greatest warriors...and [[AndTheRest a bunch of other guys]]. I love how the movie refers to them as 'Turkish,' especially since it just got through telling us that notions such as race, religion, and nationality were outmoded concepts. Or maybe it's just telling us that [[InTheFutureHumansWillBeOneRace in the future everyone's Turkish]]. Could happen."''

''DŁnyayı Kurtaran Adam'' (''The Man Who Saves The World''), also known as ''Turkish StarWars''.

Very little is actually known about this film's history. Some believe it was just a local drive-in film, others think it was just shown in a few theaters, or maybe television. We may never know, but it was likely not shown throughout Turkey, due to the whole plagiarism thing. (And considering the real Star Wars was released in Turkey, just dubbed.)

It definitely does not have fight scenes comparable to anything by Jackie Chan, but it does have guys jumping around and punching the stuffing out of overgrown stuffed animals! And it may not have special effects as good as ''Star Wars'', but... wait, yes it does - because it steals footage directly from ''Star Wars'' (hence this film's nickname)!

The plot, as best anyone can tell, is this: It's the far future, and humanity has colonized space, and Earth has been destroyed multiple times. Two [[StarWars TIE fighter]] pilots, Murat and Ali, get shot down after some kind of space battle, and crash land on a desert planet. They then get attacked by guys dressed as skeletons, but fight them off with their mad kung fu skills. Then they get attacked by other guys and get captured. The other guys work for an evil wizard, who has some kind of nefarious scheme. These other guys try to press the pilots into gladiatorial combat, but they fight back. They're forced to retreat when robots with guns show up. Along with the other prisoners, the pilots join some kind of underground resistance against the evil wizard. They get attacked by mummies and holy crap we're not even halfway through the movie and we haven't even mentioned the force field made from human brains yet.

You know what, the creators obviously didn't give this movie much thought, so why should we? Just bask in the film's mindless glory on YouTube, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKhHPdfmx8k here]]. Or just download the entire movie [[https://archive.org/details/TheManWhoSavedTheWorldturkishStarWars1982 here]]. A sequel, ''Son Of The Man Who Saves The World'' [[RevengeOfTheSequel (!!)]], was made decades later.

!!Provides examples of:
* ApocalypseHow: The Wizard attempts a Class 5 once he gets the power of the {{BFS}} and the golden brain. It's only after he dies then the Earth goes back to normal.
* BackStory: There's more going on in the prologue's {{infodump}} than in most movies' entire plot. And none of it makes any damn sense. For example, we're told that Earth is destroyed at least twice, yet the planet later seems to be okay. (As best anyone can tell, Earth got blown up into pieces, which somehow became their own planets... Yeah, that doesn't help, does it?)
** The first 5 or so minutes aren't the only infodump. There's another one given halfway through the movie with even more hilarious stuff. [[BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy Did you know that Jesus Christ fought aliens]] and formed his own superpowered group called the 13th tribe?
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Murat did this a couple of times.
* {{BFS}}: The sword may not look very impressive, but at least it's ''big''.
* BMovie
* CasanovaWannabe: Ali claims to have an irresistible charm but he couldn't get any women in the entire movie except the queen.
* ConflictBall: Ali gets an egregious one and gives the Wizard in disguise the {{BFS}} and golden brain, which gives him enough power to destroy Earth.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Being buried in dirt. Not even enough that the heroes couldn't just sit up. Oh, and pressing styrofoam blocks to the chest and wrapping phone cords around them? Oooooooookayyyyyyy...
* CreatorProvincialism: "Two Turkish pilots and some other people went off to battle."
** The sequel went overboard with this, to the point where it becomes unintentionally hilarious.
* DeadpanSnarker: Murat
-->[Ali whistles the sound no woman can resist. {{Mooks}} arrive to attack them.]\\
'''Murat''': You played the wrong tune.\\
'''Ali''': Why?\\
'''Murat''': We got skeletons instead of women.
* DrivingADesk: In the opening space battle, Ali and Murat pretend to pilot starfighters while StockFootage from ''Star Wars'' is projected onto the wall behind them.
* EarthShatteringKaboom: Shown a couple of times using the [[StarWars destruction of Alderaan]] clip.
* FuumaShuriken: The main villain attempts to kill the protagonist with large paper ninja stars. However, he misses with most of them and the rest get reflected back [[MadeOfExplodium and go boom]].
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Both horizontally and vertically.
* InfantImmortality: Averted. The monsters attack and kill civilian children.
* {{Infodump}}: This movie is the Infodump Truck.
* JumpCut: Many, and very conspicuous.
-->'''[[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]]:''' The transitions in this movie are so abrupt that I'm getting whiplash.
* {{Leitmotif}}: How many times can they play the ''IndianaJones'' theme? Guess. [[spoiler:Nope, more than that.]]
** The opening also contains very brief segments of the music from ''Battlestar Galactica'' and ''Flash Gordon''.
* LifeDrinker: The Wizard maintains his immortality by drinking the blood and consuming the brains of human beings he captures.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Between Murat and his love interest.
* MadeOfIron: Murat and Ali crashland on the desert planet and they are still able to walk fine with no scratches or bruises.
* MadeOfPlasticine: Murat and Ali can punch through their monster foes or tear their limbs right off, all with their bare hands.
* MadeOfExplodium: Rocks. Paper ninja stars. [[YourHeadAsplode Enemy mooks' heads.]]
* MoodWhiplash: Because of the very poor editing, many scenes unintentionally end up making these.
* MookChivalry: Seen in several fight sequences.
* OddlyShapedSword: The magic gold sword is shaped like some kind of lighting bolt.
* PowerFist: For the final showdown, the protagonist melts down his magic {{BFS}} and a magic golden brain and turns them into a pair of magic gloves and magic boots.
* PlotHole: You could say this movie has a few.
** It's never alluded to that Murat planned for Ali to get caught so he can get the {{BFS}}.
** Murat apparently leaves the desert planet on the [[Franchise/StarWars Millennium Falcon]] but it's never shown how he even got it.
* RagnarokProofing: Even though the Earth has been destroyed several times over the course of thousands of years, the Egyptian Pyramids and the inside of a church are still in pristine condition.
* RandomEventsPlot: This is a movie where things just happen.
* SpoilerTitle
* SceneryPorn: It may not be impressive but the mountains of the desert setting are pretty nice to look at.
* StockFootage: Lifted from ''StarWars'', of course, as well as from the less recognizable films ''Sodom and Gomorrah'' and ''TheMagicSword''. Made even worse/better by frequently being shown in the wrong aspect ratio, with results like an egg-shaped Death Star. It stands out just a little bit from the original footage for this film. To make it worse, there's frequently no context for using this footage in the first place.
** Also including a shot from 1980's [[Film/FlashGordon Flash Gordon]] and music from [[IndianaJones Indiana Jones]].
* StyrofoamRocks: Evident when Murat ties these to his legs for training and manages to jump like he's on the moon.
* TinCanRobot: The main villain's servant is one, although made of rubber. ShoutOut to Robbie The Robot in ''ForbiddenPlanet''.
* TitleDrop
-->'''Ali''': Do you think you're the man who saved the world?\\
'''Murat''': No more than you think youself to be flirty.
* ThemeMusicPowerup: The ''Franchise/BattlestarGalactica'' main theme.
* TrainingMontage: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzNyD9JNYQg Possibly the most unintentionally hilarious one ever.]]
* TheVoiceless: Murat's love interest, who forbade herself to speak at all to keep the secret of the {{BFS}} safe until someone mortal holds it.
* {{Wuxia}}: When you look at it, it's pretty much a kung fu movie [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE!]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: The Wizard turns his queen into a zombie and then a spider when she fails to seduce Ali.
* YourHeadASplode: In fact, your head makes a good grenade.
