The Man Who Saved the World (1982) Poster

Two space cadets crash-land on a desert planet, where an evil wizard seeks the ultimate power to take over the world. Although the movie borrows some background footage from Star Wars, the plot is mostly unrelated.

Nobody really knows if this is a comedy or not!
I think this was originally intended to be a serious sci-fi flick. However, Cuneyt Arkin said in a recent interview that they "had wanted to make fun of Star Wars, and this was the result". This may be his personal opinion, of course. I don't know what the director feels about his film. Judging from what I read from the user reviews, I would say that he still takes his work rather seriously!

By the way, Cuneyt Arkin is also famous for his saying about this film, "We saved the world, but bankrupted the producer!"
