From the ashes of a true hero--the technologically-advanced, Turbo Rider--a modern defender shall rise in a post-apocalyptic 1997, when Kid, a die-hard comic aficionado, stumbles upon his beloved idol's high-tech justice-enforcing gear.
After suspecting that their police officer neighbor is a serial killer, a group of teenage friends spend their summer spying on him and gathering evidence, but as they get closer to discovering the truth, things get dangerous.
In a post-apocalyptic future, THE KID, a young solitary scavenger obsessed with comic books must face his fears and become a reluctant hero when he meets a mysterious girl named APPLE. Despite their efforts to keep to themselves, ZEUS, the sadistic and self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland, plagues THE KID and APPLE. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbocharged weapon, THE KID learns of justice and friendship and embarks on an incredible journey to rid the Wasteland of evil and save the girl of his dreams.
Turbo Kid is a feature film adaptation of a short called 'T Is for Turbo (2011) ' which was originally submitted by the directors team, RKSS, to producer Ant Timpson's 'The ABCs of Death (2012)' horror anthology. See more »

I loved this movie. The gore was traditional non-CG and had a great 80's feel to it.
Brought me back to the good times of Never ending story memories. This movie made me really feel for the characters, and something I would love to share with friends.
My vote is to watch this and you'll find yourself smiling and grinning at the light hearted fun with serious under-tones.
Although they barely touched on the back story of what happened to the world, we kind of get the side notes of what happened. But the story itself wasn't about how civilization got there, but focuses on the views of the innocent main character. I fell in love with the co-star Apple, even with her annoying happy go lucky cartoon behavior. Definitely stole the show.
