Turbo (Ryan Reynolds) is a little garden snail with a big dream. He loves fast cars, and dreams of being a race car driver. He can’t get enough of it. But when a freak accident gives him super speed, his dreams are about to come true, or so it seems, until he learns that in order to succeed he will need all the help he can get from his friends.

Dreamworks has had a few ups and downs. They are capable of turning out a great movie, but sometimes they turn out drivel. It seems like you’re taking a chance when you pop in a Dreamworks DVD. I must say I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I didn’t expect it to be too great, as from the previews it seemed rather silly. But this movie does have a lot going for it. My grandchildren loved it, and found it very interesting. For me, there were some things that you have to look beyond. After all, a snail in the Indy 500. But the strength of this film is in the cast. They are a great gang of friends around Turbo who lift him up. All of the characters are well written and nicely voiced. This makes the film less about racing and more about relationships. It’s an exciting film, and a lot of fun to watch. No, this will not likely win best animated film of 2013, but there’s a lot going on here. If you have kids, they’re sure to enjoy it, and this is a great family film to enjoy together. Perhaps it’s a better DVD rental or download than it was on the big screen, and on the small screen (although they’re not so small anymore), it’s well worth checking out. I can recommend this one to fans of animation.
