“Kara Simsek” aka Turkish Rocky is mostly a drama, with the most ridiculous and amusing boxing scenes you would ever see in a film. This Turkish boxing flick shamelessly borrows real Rocky’s soundtrack, and has elements that were directly taken from Stallone’s picture.
Gotta give credit to Cetin Inanc though – Serdar’s training montage (for his final fight) is better than Rocky’s. To my knowledge, no English version of the film exists, so this is an original VHSrip with Turkish language.
Written and directed by Cetin Inanc (who also made Turkish Rambo), the film was released in 1985, a year after the “Turkish Bruce Lee” was made.
color, mono, fullscreen, in Turkish language with removable English subtitles!
