With his operations in Istanbul being continually upset by the masked patriot-cum-vigilante Iron Claw the Pirate (Demir Karahan) and his female sidekick Mine (Nebahat Cehre), the legendary super villain Fantomas (Necati Er) travels to the city intent on eliminating the pair. In the meantime, a government operative, Yilmaz (Oktar Durukan), is killed during a raid on one of Fantomas’s lairs and his brother Yildirim (Yildirim Gencer) vows revenge. Teaming up with Iron Claw, Mine and the mysterious agent Uncle (Danyal Topatan), Yildirim soon finds himself in the thick of the action. But if our heroes are going to defeat Fantomas, they must first get past his chief henchman, the hulking, metal-handed Behcet (Behcet Nacar).

Bizarre fight sequences, frantic chase scenes, diabolical dramatics and derring-do galore abound, though the body count in this one is somewhat high. Fast paced, amusingly staged in a manner that might otherwise be thought of as inept, and filled with moments of absolute kitsch — like the band of goons working for Fantomas who all run around with a giant F on their black turtlenecks. In any event it’s involving, very cult-appeal oriented fun with just a hint of S&M kink and a marvelous villain in the scheming Fantomas.
