TURBO KID (2015)

Turbo Kid (2015) is a Canadian science fiction adventure horror movie that is 95 minutes long. It was shoot in several locations in Canada. Directors and writers François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell based Turbo Kid from The ABC’s of Death.

Turbo Kid(2015) is ironically frustrating because it accomplishes everything it myopically sets out to. It is for anyone whose eyes light up at the very mention of ’80s cult action-adventures. Namely “BMX Bandits,” cartoons like “Jem and the Holograms,” and video games like “Mega Man.”. Turbo Kid takes place in the post-apocalyptic future of 1997. The Kid is an orphaned scavenger obsess with comic books. One day, he meets a mysterious girl named Apple. The Kid finds himself a reluctant hero who must face his fears to survive the wrath of Zeus; the sadistic and self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland. He was armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbocharge weapon. The Kid makes new friends on his journey for justice against the very gang that killed his own parents. It’s once-in-a-lifetime chance to rid the Wasteland of evil, and win the girl of his dreams.

It is a film that walks along the fine line of being too-dramatic and too-cheesy. Which in my opinion, it does flawlessly. However, there are not many surprises to be in this simple tale of Good Vs Evil. It chalks-out pretty much like a 80s television episode which is a huge negative in its kitty. This movie is classified as a horror movie. But it is not that scary for young kids (age 11 and above) to watch. Since The Kid is the audience’s surrogate, we see the film’s world as a post-modern world without rules. Everything is awesome because every story can involve parts of any story. The film is consistently soaked in blood and guts. Characters get hacked up, disemboweled, impaled, and generally treated like sacks of pulpy meat. That heedless disregard for human life even extends to an unnecessarily grisly flashback concerning The Kid’s dead parents.

Turbo Kid has the makings of a perfect midnight movie. It will be a nostalgic blast in the face for those of us old enough to remember. At least those who have developed an affinity for, the cheap Mad Max knock offs of the early 1980s. Turbo Kid(2015) isn’t really more mature than its raw generic parts. Rather is it clever enough to disarm viewers who want to regress to childhood without feeling guilty for that impulse.

At a first glance, Turbo Kid looks like a movie worth watching — if you like gory, ultra-violent, kitsch movies. And it is. It is a sweet love-story and a satirical look into some of the worst post-apocalyptic films of the 1980’s. It both pays homage to and parodies those really horrible rip offs that followed the success of Mad Max. The self-awareness of its own cult status in Turbo Kid is probably nobody’s fault. It likely originated in none of the three directors who have been ceaselessly working in short-film after short-film. The Kid even expresses skepticism on behalf of the viewer by saying “I thought all robots were evil”. To this Apple responds “Depends on the model.”. It teaches viewers that it’s okay to worship the recreational products of yesterday.

The story in itself is nothing exceptional. Yet it is filled with good surprises, cute moments and even a dose of emotional scenes. The sets were wonderful and could not have been better. I enjoyed everything about this movie except for all the twists. You have to pay attention and keep up with the movie – that means no blinking. I would recommend everyone to watch this movie as soon as you can.
