The best kind of independent movie is one made with equal parts love for the subject and talent. Turbo Kid is a throwback to the 80s apocalyptic genre. It reminds me a bit of Mad Max, a bit of a Troma B-movie (especially the over-the-top blood gags) and a bit of every "young person in a grand adventure". The cast is mostly unknown (save for Michael Ironside) but it is good - Munro Chambers plays "The Kid" with equal parts naivete and bravado while Laurence Leboeuf is overwhelmingly energetic as Apple (and love her eyes!). Make no mistake, there is a lot of violence, the film is kind of cheesy but it's loads of fun. More please!
