I didn’t get to the theater as much as usual in 2013, so I’m catching up via rentals now. One of those I missed was Turbo, and it was well worth watching.

The story follows the adventures of a snail who dreams of racing. And yes, we’re talking car racing. Not only does Turbo (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) stay up nights watching tapes of races; it interferes with his day job of corralling the rotten tomatoes his co-workers send down from the vines.

One day, an accident infuses him with the one thing he craves, speed. Then he finds himself in the possession of a taco truck driver, Tito (Michael Pena), who thinks that Turbo just might be the way to get his brother’s taco stand notice. Will it work?

Obviously, this animated delight has no basis in reality – especially in the final act when Turbo, as a snail, fulfills a dream of racing cars. But you know what? I didn’t care.

Why is that? The film is filled with delightful characters from start to finish. While Turbo and his brother Chet (Paul Giamatti) have their disagreements, they do obviously still care for each other. In fact, I loved how their relationship mirrored that of Tito and his brother Angelo (Luis Guzman). The other owners of the shops in the strip mall where much of the action takes place are fun as are the other racing snails in the complex. I truly loved all of them and enjoyed spending time with them.

The voice talent is wonderful. Whether famous or not, the only voice I recognized was Samuel L. Jackson, but it fit the character so perfectly I didn’t find it a distraction at all. The actors did what they needed to do, allow me to get lost in the story.

So how lost in the story did I get? During the climax, I was so into it I found myself yelling at the screen.

This film has such a heart warming storyline to it. Turbo-voiced very well by Ryan Reynolds, is a little snail with big ambitions in life. The story follows him through his journey to pursue his dreams, and even as he is outcasted by all those who love him, he still carries on.

Full of lots of laughs and a few tear jerking moments, this is a film for any child and parent a like! The cinema around me was full of lots of little giggles from all ages. Will defiantly be adding this to my collection once released.

Recommended for anyone who loves a good movie with a little unlikely character who wins the audiences hearts!

Wow I wish I had thought of this! Brilliant and awesome and so fun!
This film takes the mickey out of it'self in a way that makes it more credible.
That might make more sense once you have seen it.
Turbo is such a driven little character who draws in everyone around him both snail and human though not initially otherwise the story wouldn't be. For anyone who likes a little guy takes on the big people's world and wins above the odds story.
It's snails dressed as cars...great fun and pure fantasy fun...loads of famous voices too.
Having said all that both times I played it my little 3yr old fell asleep he prefers fireman sam and peppa pig. I think while suitable for all ages, kids older than mine would enjoy this more as many jokes are satire and cerebral in nature which little ones might not get.

Ryan Reynolds stars as the voice of a garden snail with big dreams of racing in the Indy 500 in DreamWorks Animation’s Turbo. Is this snail another great addition to the DreamWorks cast of colorful characters or is it just a bug that needs to be squished?

Theo is an average garden snail with hopes and dreams of one day being incredibly fast. During the day he lives a mundane life working in a garden with his brother, Chet, and the rest of the snails removing overripe tomatoes from the crop. At night he watches video tapes of his favorite Formula One racecar driver Guy Gagné for inspiration as he tries to improve his speed in a thirty-six inch race. So desperate to be fast he drinks energy drinks like his hero and calls himself “Turbo.” Chet thinks it’s nonsense for Theo to have such preposterous dreams given the fact that he’s a snail.

One day after nearly getting run over by a lawnmower trying to prove he is fast, Theo shamefully runs away from the garden. He stops on a highway overpass of the 101 and stares in awe of cars racing by below. All of a sudden a semi truck knocks Theo off the highway and onto the hood of a tricked out racing Camaro. He is then sucked into the engine as the vehicle drag races which he is then drowned in a Nitrous Oxide solution within the pistons. The chemicals absorb into Theo’s blood stream and he becomes lightning fast.

When he returns to the garden to tell his brother of what happened, Chet is swooped away by a hungry crow. Theo races after the bird and rescues him, but then finds themselves stranded in the middle of a strip mall in Van Nuys, California. The two are captured and when they think they are doomed, they are actually placed on a racetrack against other snails.
