1 Plexiglas ball sporting 1 hamster was fine for Disney's Bolt. Along comes Bruckheimer -- now it's 3 Plexiglas balls with 4 hamsters, er, guinea pigs, and 1 Transformer. Seems he's hell bent on excess.

Obtain a human-sized version of a hamster wheel, then spend a couple of hours scurrying around inside it, and you'll have had an experience far more varied and stimulating than what's on offer here.

The animals seem more real than the humans, but the comedy is overly cute and the tone forced.

Not even remotely as bad as it could have been. Because, let's call a spade a spade: "sentient guinea pig spies" could easily have been just about the worst movie ever made.

The CGI guinea pigs are startlingly realistic-looking... which will charm kids, and the whiz-bang nonsense they get up to... is exactly the stuff of silly, entertaining moviegoing.

Action and animals make good entertainment for kids and so-so entertainment for adults.

Anybody who wants to go to a movie about talking secret-agent guinea pigs is probably too young to read this review.

The maestro of mayhem, Jerry Bruckheimer, does a kids movie.

When I review movies, I ask myself... "does the movie do what it set out to do?" G-Force set out to be an entertaining family movie that makes money. On that basis, G-Force succeeds.

The best original blockbuster of the summer. Just to clarify that demonstrative statement, Star Trek was a reboot/re-imagining/sequel. (500) Days of Summer isn't a blockbuster. It is still better than the other sequel blockbusters.

Have you ever wondered what a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced talking-animal movie would be like? Me, neither. But here's the answer.

Really there's no reason to see this but if you really need to satisfy your guinea pig fix, hit the local pet store. It's cheaper and far more entertaining.

Though the film as a whole delivers ample thrills, it does lag occasionally and is encumbered by bland voiceovers and a lack of laughs

Technically accomplished holiday fun to while away a wet afternoon with the sprogs, G-Force is exciting while it lasts, but about as memorable as the bucket of over-priced popcorn.

Imagine ordering a Diet Coke only to be handed a formula on a piece of paper and you have some idea of what watching G-Force is like.

There is a distinct pet-shop whiff coming off this weirdly soulless and not especially funny or exciting family comedy from Disney about guinea pigs.

The story feels thin and faintly incoherent, the action is loud and relentless. A milder version of many other Bruckheimer films, then - which doesn't mean kids won't love it.

Nowhere near the originality of anything from Pixar.

Without a strong villain, a charismatic hero or a clear quest, it's all just a pointless frenzy, an exercise in going nowhere fast. A bit like a hamster on a wheel.

A slick slice of efficient family entertainment, but lacking the inspiration to turn in into something special.
