100 Word Movie Review – Turbo

Turbo

Turbo passed me by when it was showing at the local cinema. It probably passed you by too, and that was nothing to do with the titular character travelling at 200mph.

The idea that sparks the story may not be derivative but the story itself couldn’t be more so. A down on his luck protagonist uncovers a means to transcend his humdrum ways. He faces obstacles! He overcomes them!

There’s nothing really new here. However it is a very pleasant and easy going film. It’s mildly amusing, sometimes charming, and looks decent.

It really is the very definition of OK.
