Movie Review


Buckle up for one of this year’s most fun and exciting racing adventures, “Turbo”! This 3D computer-animated film is produced by Dreamworks Animation, distributed by 20th Century Fox and based on an original idea by David Soren, and features the voices of well-known celebrities such as Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, and Snoop Dogg. With great comedy and an unusual plot, Turbo is an exciting ride that will keep you entertained throughout the whole experience.

Turbo is an ordinary snail who lives with his brother, Jet, and colony of snails in a garden. His life is ordinary and mundane for a snail, but Turbo dreams of a more exciting life like he sees in the racing shows on TV. He dreams of participating in a race, but being one of the slowest animals around makes his dream all but impossible. But as Turbo meets with a life altering experience, he might just find himself closer to his dream than he ever thought possible.

The animation is amazingly detailed and fluid, and each character has a unique and recognizable design. It also has a nice soundtrack, where each score fits each scene seamlessly and really helps to build the atmosphere and feel of the movie. It uses a number of popular songs by famous singers, such as “Eye of the Tiger”, and they are all incorporated in a way that feels natural and not needlessly tacked on as is sometimes the case with movies that incorporate popular music. The comedy is fantastic, and there are a lot of laugh-out-loud moments in the movie. It has great comedic timing and a genius sense of humor. The directing and pacing of the movie is very well done, each scene flows naturally to the next and no part feels too dragged out or too short. The voice work is absolutely delightful, as each actor has done their utmost to breathe life and personality into their respective characters. And just hearing Samuel L. Jackson’s voice come out of a snail is a reason in itself not to miss this movie. Everything is so well done that you won’t be disappointed.

Turbo is a fun and exciting experience you don’t want to miss out on. It has all the right ingredients of a great animated feature: Great animation, great characters, and a great sense of comedy. It’s good for watching on your own, but also a fantastic movie to watch with a friend and share the experience. The movie is also suitable for all ages, so it’s a safe movie for the whole family to enjoy. So if you’re looking for a fun movie to catch, Turbo is definitely recommended!
