Cheap superhero film with unabashed splatter violence. I actually like the setup. Turbo Kid is all eighties: it starts with the intro, which states that the film takes place in the future, in 1997 Then you see a Rubik cube, and the Walkman and the 3D viewer also come along. And how about an 80s song as an opener? There are also a lot of nods to 80s films: Mad Max, Indiana Jones (that cowboy), Big Trouble in Little China (that bad guy with the basket on his head), the nonsense dialogues.

The makers make no secret of their love for the '80s. The intention seemed to be to bring out a lot of artefacts from this decade, but at certain moments it also came across as very childish (those BMXs, the robot chick) and by constantly wanting to be retro , the film lacks any real flow, not to mention the story barely makes any sense. The problem is mainly that Turbo Kid isn't naturally 80s; it tries too hard to look 80s and that's where the shoe pinched me.

After the successful Summer of 84 (2018) I also watched this film. Unfortunately they are not at the same level. Turbo Kid is often described as a kind of Mad Maxfor children, I can agree with that, although it is too bloody for a children's film. There are references to the '80s, much less subtly processed than in Summer of 84 and they are not really integrated into the film. Both the acting and the script falter. 1.5*

Nice film in which a boy meets a girl in a post-apocalyptic world. A nice feature where this film from 2015 pretends to be a film from the '80s that takes place in the future (1997). In that respect, the entire decoration is well done. The story, on the other hand, was a lot less interesting. Nicely over the top bloody here and there.
