Review

A great retro 80s throwback flick!

9/10 'TURBO KID': Four and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A post-apocalyptic action/sci-fi/horror flick; about an obsessive comic book fan, that takes on the identity of his favorite character, to fight an evil tyrant and save the woman he loves. The film was directed and written by debut feature filmmakers Francois Simard and Anouk and Yoann-Karl Whissell. It stars Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf (no relation to Shia), Michael Ironside, Edwin Wright, Aaron Jeffery and Romano Orzari. I loved it.

The movie takes place in a post-apocalyptic future world (in the year 1997). The Kid (Chambers) is an orphaned comic book fan, that travels around on his BMX bike; searching for valuables to trade in for water (which is extremely rare). He befriends a quirky girl, named Apple (Leboeuf), and the two are eventually stalked by a sadistic madman, named Zeus (Ironside), and his followers. The Kid discovers an ancient weapon, much like the one his favorite comic character possesses, and uses it to try and imitate his hero; in order to save Apple, and himself, from the evil tyrant.

The film is definitely strange and extremely unique; which I always respect in movies. It's also funny, quirky and full of great stylized gore. The performances are all decent enough (especially Ironside and Leboeuf, who are both scene-stealers in it) and the trio of filmmakers makes a very impressive directorial debut. It's a great retro 80s throwback flick; for fans of horror, sci-fi and post-apocalyptic thrillers!

Destined to become a sci fi/horror classic?

9/10 I have no difficulty believing that Turbo Kid won an Audience Award at the 2015 South by Southwest (SXSW) festival, and several awards or nominations at other film festivals. It's 95 minutes of outrageous gore and belly laughs. Yes, I meant that. Whoever had the fake blood concession undoubtedly made a hefty profit supplying dozens of gallons of the red stuff, and I laughed myself silly at the number of gruesome ways the expendable characters died. But it was all in fun - the mayhem and violence was not too over-the-top explicit (okay, there was the scene with the guy's guts being ripped out by a bicycle), and I had the feeling the actors were having fun with it.

Turbo Kid has a post-apocalyptic setting strongly reminiscent of Mad Max. The world as we know it has been devastated, and the water has become so polluted that safe drinking water has become a treasured commodity. The Kid (Munro Chambers) lives by himself and only goes into a nearby settlement to trade for water with the articles he finds by scavenging. One day he meets Apple (Laurence Leboeuf), a remarkably free-spirited girl, and they become scavenging buddies. When Apple is kidnapped, the Kid goes after her and stumbles across a device that gives him super powers. But even with super powers, he's up against formidable odds as he tries to rescue Apple. The final showdown against the baddies, led by the one-eyed Zeus (Michael Ironside), is truly one of filmdom's great gorefests.

Turbo Kid was no super-low-budget studio backlot knockoff. The production values were quite good, and the acting was first rate, especially young Laurence Leboeuf as Apple, who caught me completely off guard with a surprise revelation. The driving high energy soundtrack complemented the film perfectly.

It's a fun movie to watch, and I really hope there's a sequel.

I was provided the opportunity to prescreen the film.

Set your expectations right!

9/10 I don't really have any previous knowledge of most of the actors or seen or heard anything prior to watching the movie apart from the trailer.

I won't go into plot details as there are other reviews that did that way better.

What I do want to say though is: set your expectations right!!! If you liked what you saw in the trailer, hey...if you liked the poster and know what "homage" means as a genre then go see it! But if you are not aware of those things....please don't come back here giving ratings of 1 and saying how bad this movie was.

It's one of those artsy movies that you'd better watch on your own in my opinion. The universe is very captivating. The characters are likable and relatable. They are pure and innocent in a way. There is no nudity in the movie. And the gore is 80's style, but you could probably go with a tween or a teen. It's way safer than what Hollywood offers to that audience.

I really enjoyed the movie. If you have open mind, some time and know what to expect it's a nice treat at the beginning of the autumn. If some of those things do not apply to you, then you'd probably skip or leave the cinema.

Colourful and bloody homage to 80's sci-fi action flicks

7/10 Some films have no pretensions other than to simply entertain their audience. Turbo Kid is such a movie. It plays upon the continual love for the 80's that still shows no signs of abating. Its set in the future of 1997 - well this was the distant future in the 80's I seem to recall – and the world is a post-apocalypse. General lawlessness prevails and life is a survival of the fittest. Enter The Kid, a teenager who lives in a scrap yard surrounded by old 80's toys, he is joined by an ever-optimistic girl called Apple and together they go against a gang of bad guys ruled over by an evil man called Zeus.

This Canadian movie really goes for it on the 80's homage front. We have heroes on BMX bikes and a world not dissimilar to the Mad Max template. We also have a very agreeable 80's styled synth score that emphasises its influences at all times. The two young heroes make for an engaging central couple, with Laurence Leboeuf particularly impressive as the girl Apple. Michael Ironside is also on hand to offer some additional B movie cred and as a star of many 80's genre pics his presence makes additional sense. The story is nonsense of course but it never pretends otherwise. It's more a means to an end to allow us to see lots of over-the-top bloody action violence and colourful characters decked out in a selection of great outfits. It's fast-paced and, most importantly, it never forgets that its principle objective is to entertain. It reminded me a little of another Canadian movie Hobo with a Shotgun (2011) which also was a hyper violent modern recreation of an 80's genre pic with a veteran genre star (in that case Rutger Hauer). Turbo Kid adopts the same approach but dispenses with the more mean-spirited stuff from that one; its focus is squarely on a fun time.

A Live Action Graphic Novel

8/10 A feature length remake of the short (T for Turbo) which was made as an entrant for the competition to fill the T slot of ABCs of Death (2012). That short never made it, but this film did.

Turbo Kid is directed among three different people all independent film makers with such potential talent. The story revolves around a futuristic post-apocalyptic alternative universe where we follow a young kid on a journey to defeat the tyrannical overlord. A throwback to 70s and 80s action films, with cheesy and excessive graphic violence throughout. But the film does not rely on the gore its produced with care, from three-dimensional characters that feel real, an easy to follow story and a phenomenal music score that pumps excitement through my veins. Truly an alive picture, a colorful experience almost like an acid trip, or like cinematic ecstasy as they say. The Beauty about this film is it works as a selection of genres, from a drama to a comedy or an action/sci- fi/horror, its also designed like a children's super hero movie but in fact it is not afraid to hold back on the extreme comedic blood and gore ultimately targeted for adults. Truly an exceptional B- grade sci-fi flick, recommend with a passion.
