Turbo Kid, 2015 - ★★½

Turbo Kid, 2015 - ★★½

Fun nostalgia heavy retro throwback to 80's post apocalyptic movies. Michael Ironsides the Colonel Kurtz looking villain whose Soylent Green like extracting water from captive humans. Its up to comic book obsessed scavenger the Kid and his robotic best friend Apple to even the score. Its not bad and genuinely captures the essence of that era well, but its likely too goofy for adults and its definitely too gory for kids. Its big failure though is that its seriously hampered by long lulls between its action. Its pretty much destined to become a cult oddity.
