This 1971 Turkish film is incredible.  Tarkan is a string bean with a little moustache, the Vikings all wear pastel-colored bath rugs for furs, and there is even a real, live inflatable octopus.  In realm of kitsch entertainment, "Tarkan vs. the Vikings" rivals the very best Luchador films.

He does not look like a Viking king to me. He looks like the mascot for a brand of toilet paper. Wiped out by Tarkan.

I am familiar with many of the Tarzan films, seeing many of them both in the theater and on TV, but when I thought I saw "Tarzan vs. the Vikings," which I had never heard of, I said to myself: "That title looks interesting. It looks like something I might want to see." Then I took another look at the title. Never mind. Carry on.

I also thought the title was Tarzan Versus The Vikings ~ I re-read the title and then went for an eye test last Friday.  Smile

Well with the Silk & Spice trade it isn't out of the question for Chinese to make it to Turkey.

That octopus has eight arms and it doesn't know how to operate a single one of them. BounceGiggle

After reading your great review of this film and watching that great clip, I MUST SEE THIS MOVIE! I actually checked on Amazon.com and the used price of the double feature DVD this is a part of is 15 dollars but it is also going for 44.99 brand new which is outrageous. I'm going to check ebay as well.

     As a devotee of cinematic cephalopoda, I can state that this octopus is the worst!

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Always looking for bloopers/flubs/nits in films. And I think I saw one in "Tarkan vs. the Vikings." In his bar brawl with the Vikings, did Tarkan, after using his sword on the Vikings, return his sword to its scabbard, without wiping it off first? If so, bad Tarkan bad. No good soldier would return his sword to its scabbard without wiping it off first, because, the next time you tried to draw your sword, it might stick because of the congealed blood on it.

"Hey Disney! You know the first version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea's squid attack?  The one with the pretty pink sunset? The one you ordered us to destroy? Well, someone took our squid out of the trash, ya see, and...well..."  TeddyR

P.S. Any plans to review the first Tarkan movie?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
