Celluloid guts, that potent flicker. Here I am and here's some cinema
There’s nothing surprising in Turbo Kid, you’ll know going in whether it’s your bag or not. It’s ambitions are meager and it executes them with aplomb. A penchant for gore & commercial 80’s youth nostalgia above all will get you into this robot girlfriend movie. It is tired and thoughtless and niche but it has heart. It’s somehow both sweet and mean. It’s unfunny and boring. Shares DNA with the inferior Hobo with a Shotgun and the superior (slightly) Beyond the Black Rainbow. I watched it with people who loved it and you might too, I dunno man. Pffffttt.
