"It's 1997. In a ruined post-apocalyptic world, the orphaned “Kid” survives on his own through drought-ridden nuclear winter, traversing the Wasteland on his BMX, scavenging for scraps to trade for a scant supply of water. When his perpetually chipper, pink-haired new best friend Apple is kidnapped by a minion of evil overlord Zeus, the” Kid” summons the courage of his comic book hero and prepares to deliver turbocharged justice to Zeus, his buzzsaw-handed sidekick Skeletron, and their vicious masked army.”

This is a film with a a lot of action and gore on the surface, but underneath it has a very beautiful and romantic love story that will teach the value and meaning of love, justice, and friendship. “Turbo Kid" is a socially awkward orphan and lives in a desert called the Wasteland. He is surrounded by very weird and strange comic-book characters. The kid is solitary scavenger like Wall-E who hoards ’80s and ’90s relics and enjoys reading comic books. He would like to be a hero and destiny gives him the opportunity to become one. At the same time he meets an enigmatic and magical girl “Apple” played by Laurence Leboeuf.

The villain “Zeus”  is played by Michael Ironside, an evil leader of the Wasteland and “Turbo Kid” mission is to defeat him with his turbocharged weapon. This film is very violent and fun to watch, and the most fascinating fact about the movie is the connection the audience will develop with the characters as the film progress.

Apple fulfills the magical female role in the film. She opens up the window of hope and has a powerful presence in the Kid's life and brings peace in the most despicable bloody battle (Grindhouse style) in the evil world of the Wasteland. You will fall in love with her character and her connection with the Kid is pure, honest and innocent.  The journey the Kid confronts in order to save Apple who has been kidnapped by “Zeus” and his people is brutal and Turbo Kid needs to overcome his fears defeating the villains to save the girl’s life.”
