2016-03-28-00-18-53-2068100793Funded on Indiegogo and unfortunately I couldn’t afford to contribute to their campaign at the time but this movie surprised me.  Penned as Mad Max on a BMX bike it lives up to its name with a clash against what being a true hero is all about in an existence secretly governed by robots in a post apocalyptic world as we open up in to the world of the kid.

Directed by Francois Simard, Anouk Whissel, and Yoanne-Karl Whissel this team brought about a landscape ruled by a baron wasteland of sorts a world on the brink of an illusioned apocalypse where a we meet a young man who lives in his own shack in the middle of nowhere reading comic books and collecting Comic books from a bygone era of magazines.

Pretty soon the kid meets up with Apple agirl that at first follows him around and annoys him but ultimately becomes his best freind later on but through defending him in a battle against these sick looking robots with superior weapons.

Eventially it comes down to the kid to save this wasteland from the evil of this bad ass  dude by the name of Zeus who seems to have his own band of skully miscreants in hockey mask-like uniforms that threatens the existence of human kind.

When I saw this I thought this was a fresh story great acting and could definitely tell the talent was there along with having a character in there that slightly acted like Indiana Jones a little I fealt the gore factor in two of the fights was brilliant in its portrayal of resistance and the effects of the weaponry of the Turbo Kid far out mind blowing altogether this was a memorable film plus you can’t go wrong with Ironsides fucking brilliant!
