independent movie gold!
12 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is independent movie gold. The cinematography is beautiful, from the old buildings, to the landscapes, this film makes you believe your in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. There are a lot of practical effects and blood gags, lots of blood! One touch I enjoyed was the use of bicycles, if you think about it, it makes scent in a post-apocalyptic world there most likely isn't gas so how else do you get around. The little bit of C.G. they use is really 80's, as well as the music and props, which is part of the charm of Turbo Kid.

Besides Total Recall's (1990) Michael Ironside who plays a great villain, the rest of the cast isn't as well know which makes this movie stand out. Munro Chambers plays the star of the film known as "The Kid"; like most post-apocalyptic movies in the 80s his back story gets flushed out throughout the film. At times The Kid reminds me of a young Mad Max, although The Kid doesn't become an interesting character until we run into "Apple" played by Laurence Leboeuf. When we first see apple she is CREEPY! But we quickly glow to love her and with her humorous personality she kind of steals the show. Aaron Jeffery plays the bad ass character who is a mix of Mad Max, Indiana Jones and Snake Plissken. All together the whole cast works really well together and their chemistry gets you really invested in the film.

The story moves at a quick pace once it gets warmed up and it just keeps going which kept me glued. Sure the blood is over the top, there are some quick fixes to keep the story going and there is some cheesy times but it is all fun and I really enjoyed this film from start to finish. Unfortunately this film maybe forgotten by most so don't pass it up. Turbo Kids is another independent film that shows why you should look for non-mainstream films because they try harder, they are fun and a bit different. Cheers and remember life won't suck as long as there is a good movie to watch.

9 out of 10
