'Turbo Kid' Gives Us An 80s-Style Family Adventure Set In 1997
But how will he text people without a cell phone? Amid the much-hyped summer movie deluge, we've got a fun, modest family movie that's introducing itself to the world. Turbo Kid is the story of a boy (orphaned, natch) who goes on a quest to save his female robot friend from a power-hungry warlord. Sounds pretty weird, right? It's the work of three (!) directors, François Simard, Annouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell, who are hoping to take audiences back to the types of family adventure films we saw in the 80s like Goonies, The Last Starfighter, and Time Bandits. Check out the trailer and see if they hit their mark.
