Turbo Kid (2015)Review:
BMX, walkman, VHS, slap bracelet… within minutes, it is clear that Turbo Kid is all about bringing you kids from the 80s-early 90s into a state of nostalgia, and it does an awesome job at it, all of this on a background of synthesizer music.
Turbo Kid is set in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by nuclear holocaust, with people fighting over water to survive…reminds you of something? Yes, the movie is a huge tribute to Mad Max, except Mad Max on bicycle! Like in the latter, the work done on the costumes, the vehicles, the weapons is what brings the movie to life. Turbo Kid pays a great attention to details, which gives it a great re-watch potential.
The story in itself is nothing exceptional, and yet it is filled with good surprises, cute moments and even a dose of emotional scenes. Thereee are many references to movies from that period, including Terminator, Escape from New York, Soylent Green, etc.
In all of that, you might ask: where is the horror? Well, Turbo Kid would make many splatter pale in comparison. The practical special effects are superb and there are enough guts flying to satisfy even the most hardcore gore fanatics.
Honestly, unless you have a phobia of the 80s… it would be a shame to miss that one. I except to find it in most people’s Top 10 horror movies of the year.
