About 'Turbo Kid'

The 2015 film “Turbo Kid” is a post-apo­ca­lyptic action comedy set in a dysto­pian future. The film tells the story of a young boy known as Turbo Kid who lives in a des­olate desert land­scape. He is an avid col­lector of comic books and dreams of being a real super­hero.

One day Turbo Kid meets a mys­ter­ious young woman named Apple, who quickly becomes his ally and friend. Together they must fight off the tyr­an­nical leader Zeus and his army of henchmen. In the pro­cess, they benefit from their unex­pected super­hero powers, which Turbo Kid has developed due to his intense comic book know­ledge.

What sets “Turbo Kid” apart from other post-apo­ca­lyptic films are the absurd and lun­atic ideas built into the plot. The makers of the film do not take them­selves too ser­i­ously and rely on a mix­ture of viol­ence, humour and nos­talgia. One of the cra­ziest ideas is cer­tainly the use of bicycles as the main means of trans­port in this future world. Instead of using cars or motor­bikes, the char­ac­ters ride around on mod­i­fied bicycles equipped with weapons.

Another crazy ele­ment of the film is the char­ac­ters them­selves. Zeus, the tyr­an­nical leader, wears a strange metal mask and has a pen­chant for the­at­rical vil­lainy. Apple, Turbo Kid’s com­panion, is a naïve and lov­able girl with a some­what pecu­liar fond­ness for pink clothes and sun­flowers. The por­trayal of these char­ac­ters adds an extra dose of whimsy to the film and makes for unex­pected comic moments.

The action sequences in “Turbo Kid” are also impressive. They are bloody and brutal, but presented in an exag­ger­ated and humorous way. The viol­ence is often spiced with a pinch of black humour, making the film a mix­ture of splatter and comedy.

Random movie quote of 'Turbo Kid'

This is the future. The world as we knew it is gone. Acid rain has left the land barren and the water toxic. Scarred by endless wars humanity struggles to survive in the ruins of the old world, frozen in an everlasting nuclear winter. This is the future... this is the year 1997.
