A snail kicks into overdrive after miraculously attaining the power of super-speed.
" Even in the absence of originality, there is fun to be had, thanks to some loopy, clever jokes (the script is by Darren Lemke, Robert Siegel and David Soren, who directed) and a lively celebrity voice cast ... "
" DreamWorks' 3-D confection ... featuring Ryan Reynolds as a garden-trolling slowpoke who dreams of Indianapolis 500 glory. "
" After the originality of the hero, the filmmakers borrow too heavily from other movies; the similarities to "Ratatouille" and "Cars" are almost distracting. "
" the movie seems to understand its own near-abject ridiculousness ... without getting overly nudge-nudge wink-wink ... "
" A derivative but nevertheless good-hearted movie that's peppered with enough clever touches to engage adults as well as moviegoers of the smaller, squirmier variety. "
" Let's face it: Kids aren't a very demanding audience. If there's color, movement, and a high quotient of silliness, they're happy. "
" A fresh, fast and funny little fable about a freakishly fast garden snail who tries to enter the Indy 500. "
" Honestly, they pretty much had me at "racing snails." "
" Turbo's colourful trek to product placement-littered Indianapolis is as rote as it gets, but little viewers won't care about predictability. "
" "Turbo" has just enough heart to make it to the winner's circle. "
" "Turbo" isn't a perfect cartoon, but it's so likable that, like its humble hero, you have to root for it. "
" An attractively designed but narratively challenged, one-note film. "
" All Turbo does is give Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Samuel L. Jackson and Snoop Dogg the easiest paychecks they'll ever make, and its corporate overlords the chance to sell a few toys. "
" Content to be merely cheerfully cliched, it's an assembly-line kids' film that, unlike its daring protagonist, risks little, and thus reaps only modest rewards. "
" Great voice talent in a story that puts the "go" in escargot. "
" There's certainly no harm in seeing "Turbo." Competent, pretty funny in places, awfully nice to look at, that sort of thing. "
" Has some appealing characters, a few laughs and then devolves into a predictable Tortoise and the Hare spinoff. "
" Ultimately, "Turbo" nicely lives up to its diminutive hero's credo of, "No dream is too big, and no dreamer too small" - a pleasant thought, for people of all sizes. "
" An easy recommendation, well-considered and well-executed, a treat for anyone who likes comedy or ambitious takes on make-believe worlds. "
" A sort-of escargot-meets-"Cars" adventure, it has some sharp vocal turns and remains fun even when its inventiveness runs out of gas. "
