It's Turkish daffy cinema time again.
Something has to be said about our superheroes. There were a few that were born Godlike, and there were some who got a divine dose of radiation. Then there is The Lion Man. Born of royalty, but raised by lions. He has no true super powers, but he makes up for that with his homemade lion claw gloves. This Turkish film follows the story of a baby thrust out of his royal home and into the woods. Some very nice lions teach him survival skills. He fights and claws his way back. Mauling bad guys left and right with what looks like a hand-warmer with plastic metal claws. Turn your logic off and watch some great scenes. Yes, it's another low budget Turkish spectacular.
