The Film is an obvious homage to 1980's sci fi action flicks like Ice Pirates, Mega Force or Metalstorm. It doesn't take itself seriously and has clever 1980's dialogue. For an independent B film, the production quality and costumes were top notch. rivaling even the biggest Hollywood blockbusters. To say the film was Mad Max on BMX bikes is a very accurate description. Every one had a rad BMX, even the bad guys.
The acting in the film was top notch, Ironside is the perfect villain. Munro Chambers, best known for Degrassi - The Next Generation was likable as the solitary Kid. Everything about Turbo Kid just worked. With films like this and the sensational short film "Kung Fury", these homages are hilariously cheesy and I hope there are more like them. From the fake intro to the credits, this is a heck of a good time. Turbo Kid is playing at the 2015 Milwaukee Film Festival and is not to be missed.
