If you’re a red-blooded American then you know who RAMBO is. Arguably the most iconic action hero of the 80s, John J. aka Stallone went on kicking ass for four films, the last ending in 2008. But I bet you don’t know who Serdar Kebapçılar is. Never heard of him? Neither did I until I found out about comedian Kevin Maher’s two-hour variety show celebrating Rip-Off Cinema at Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema.
It’s a bold cross-genre phenomenon of copycat films, knockbusters and rushed productions that borrow from popular films. His evening event includes all kinds of cash-grab films, including the best, the worst, the weirdest and the most shameless. So, who is Serdar? He’s a renown Turkish bodybuilder that starred in the Turkish Rambo rip-off, RAMPAGE. But you’ll find out all about that at Kevin’s variety show.
