Retro action adventure movie Turbo Kid is out now on DVD and Blu-ray, incase you needed any further incentive to see it, a brand new Michael Ironside narrated trailer has just been released. The short gory trailer is jaw dropping in every way, and I mean that literally.
As a child of the 80s, my formative years were spent in video stores plucking up the courage to attempt to rent an 18 rated movie to melt my tiny mind. Thankfully a growth spurt and an older brother ensured my underage eyes got to see everything from Robocop to Van Damme by way of Die Hard. So, a portion of 80s hyper-violence is just what the Doctor ordered.
If you liked the retro charms of Wolfcop, Hobo With A Shotgun and Machete, then you won’t want to miss Turbo Kid. You can get our verdict this week in The Friday Night Post Pub Movie until then check out the latest trailer.
In a post-apocalyptic future, The Kid (Munro Chambers) lives alone in his underground bunker, scavenging for relics from the old world and obsessing over comic books. But when he meets a girl named Apple (Laurence Leboeuf), it’s not long before The Kid has to face his fears and challenge the sadistic Zeus (Michael Ironside), who has declared himself leader of the “Wasteland” and taken control of water supply.
Armed with his ancient turbocharged weapon, he embarks on an incredible journey to rid the Wasteland of evil – and discovers the true meaning of justice and friendship.
