    Turbo Kid;

    Honestly, this looks like a tongue in cheek B-movie style film which captures what I see as 'classic' fallout.
    It's got OTT blood, silly humour in a horrid wasteland and 'fun' characters to explore the post-nuke world.

    EHR MEH GHERD I'm so watching the whole thing...

    another bit...

    here's the whole thing :D

    Turbo Kid is a great movie. I wouldn't describe it as classic fallout, what with the androids and magic space gloves, but it's definitely drawing lots of inspiration from stuff that Fallout also drew inspiration from, the obvious one being Mad Max.

    Maybe this is willful on my part, but I saw Fallout, the original Fallout as very serious outside of the random encounters. Sure it had pulpy things in it, but it was never wacky, and even justified the Ghouls with malfunctioning FEV as the cause. Fallout 2 is wacky, something I definitely didn't like, but Fallout 1? No quite serious. They wouldn't have gone into that much detail on how FEV actually changes cell structure otherwise.

    I saw the second video on a movie festival. I had no idea it was part of a bigger series.

    I watched Turbo Kid one year ago I think. It was quite entertaining.
    I loved Laurence Leboeuf's character Apple for some reason.

    Yup agree with you, The movie itself was a solid 5/10, certainly not as fun as the trailers make out, but not a waste of time watching. I chuckled a few times so I'm not afraid of the few bucks I spent renting it on Youtube.

    And @Risewild I'd agree the Apple character was well done, honestly... I think I'd watch more of her, perhaps in a mini series though, the movie felt stretched and in desperate need of better audio backing.

    @Charwo I hear your comments on FO1, I came to the franchise via FO2 so that sits in my brain as the 'imprint' of fallouty-ness, and this movie just felt right :)
