MAD BMaX

by

TURBO KID

  • Mayfair Theatre, 1074 Bank Street

Vroom vroom vroom! Let the circular sawing begin. Anyone a little squeamish about gushing dismembered body parts may want to take a pass, though when presented with low budget, cartoony panache, gorefests like “Turbo Kid” make for great, campy viewing.

Set in a water-starved wastelend, this Mad Maxy, retro-future post-apocalyptic adventure checks off all the cult classic items. We have a grizzled outlaw, a young dreamer, a bubbly love interest, a truly despicable bad guy, your next Halloween costume, bicycle chases, and plenty of conflict. Oh and robots, I forgot the robots.

Drenched with cheesy, clavinet filled music, and bright coloured plastic gizmos, Turbo Kid is a long lost eighties flick which takes place in the desolate future of 1997! None of this makes much sense, but who cares, the “Turbo Kid” is all about rip-roarin’ action, adventure, and comic book fun. Best see it on the big screen for the groan-along crowd thrill.
