The snail-eye view of burning up the racetrack at 200+ mph is thrilling; you'll think, 'Why am I choking up about a oxymoronic fast snail?' Finding one's bliss is magical!

Turbo is much stronger than Disney's Planes, and while parents may wonder if it's the right message to send youngsters that no dream is too big for the dreamer, Turbo is still a solid pick for family movie night.

Boasts one of the most one-note protagonist in animated film history, some troubling racial elements, and a paint-by-numbers execution that makes this film about the dream to go fast feel painfully slow.

The outcome is as predictable as the premise is outrageous in this crowd-pleasing 3D animated comedy.

Turbo is a very cute movie with lots of great animation and elements that the kids are going to love. It's just a bit hard to swallow.

The animated races are fast and fun, the jokes are hip without being too snarky and the starry voice cast is super.

The graphics are colourful and kinetic in a souped-up computer game sort of way, and there's pleasure to be had in watching the racetrack zoom by at full throttle.

The racing set-pieces are fizzy enough, but you have to wonder if teaching snails not to be content with their given snail speed is the right message to put out there.

David Soren and his Dreamworks Animatoids follow the Pixar playbook page by well-thumbed page, replicating the utilitarian plotting and kooky characters that lend themselves so completely to merchandise spin-offs.

The picture has an energy which dares you to confine the term 'snail's pace' to history.

This flashy fantasia attempts to fuel-inject an American dream that is stuck in a recessionary slow lane.

Whizzy and superficial, this isn't the most complicated animated film ever made, but it's a lot of fun if you can buy into its silly premise about a snail who moves at super-fast speed.

It's good fun, especially for smaller children, and looks fabulous.

A perfectly enjoyable and often funny animation film with a stellar cast behind it, but the predictable storyline and underwhelming 3D effects are a little disappointing.

A zippy and good-natured adventure that hones in on its target audience from the get-go.

Fast and furiously good natured, it certainly puts the gas into gastropod.

Visually colourful but narratively bland ... Turbo zips through your brain without leaving a mark.

If you want to see Paul Giamatti as a snail - and who doesn't - you've come to the right place.
