Turbo Kid Review


In a post-apocalyptic wasteland in 1997, a comic book fan adopts the persona of his favourite hero to save his enthusiastic friend and fight a tyrannical overlord.

Turbo Kid (2015) is a Canadian science fiction adventure horror movie that is 95 minutes long and was filmed in several locations in Canada. Directors and writers François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell based Turbo Kid from their segment in The ABC’s of Death. They elaborated more on their post-apocalyptic segment revolving around isolated wastelands in 1997 in Turbo Kid. The movie paid homage to its predecessors and stands out by the little things it brought to us. This movie is classified as a horror movie, but it is not that scary for young kids (age 11 and above) to watch.

Turbo Kid revolves around a young orphaned boy who is known as “The Kid” (Munro Chambers - Degrassi: The Next Generation (2001), Godsend (2004), The Latest Buzz (2007), Beethoven’s Christmas Adventure (2011)). The Kid lives in a secret bunker underground scavenging for whatever he can find and use. He soon meets Apple (Laurence Leboeuf - Trauma (2010), 15/Love (2004), The Little Queen (2014), Story of Jen (2008)) and figures out that they need to stick with each other to survive. Zeus ( Michael Ironside - Total Recall (1990), The Machinist (2004), Top Gun (1986), Starship Troopers (1997)) is an evil warlord that kidnapped Apple and brought out the superhero in The Kid. The Kid gets his power to fight the Zeus by wearing a turbocharged mechanized weapon suit that he found.

Turbo Kid is filled with story twists, humor bloody gore, comedy, action, adventure and awesome acting. I enjoyed watching Apple and The Kid’s performance as it was touching and heartfelt. The death scenes were pretty bloody. A prisoners intestine was yanked out by a contraption made from a bicycle. 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.
