For a $135 million movie, Turbo is charmingly humble.

Though kids of 10 years old or so are bound to love this film (that's what matters, really), sadly the generic, unoriginal nature to this film leaves the adult audience left wanting.

With a bright production design enlivened by strong 3D, and a simple, likeable story about self-actualisation, it's a slow but sure winner.

Though the "be yourself" theme is becoming a little too familiar what really sparks the proceedings here are the lashings of wily humour, the takedown of hero worship and a terrific subtext about overcoming the limits others put on you.

I'd like to see family-oriented flicks take a few more chances but for what it is, Turbo makes for decent viewing.

The latest DreamWorks animation epic Turbo offers gorgeous imagery (duh), a nifty star vocal cast, some sweet gags and a plot that, even by these proudly fantasy-heavy standards, is pretty damn silly. But anyway...

Perfectly predictable but endlessly entertaining and boasting amazing animation, Turbo is yet another zero to hero st

Filled with inventive ideas, wacky concepts and characters so colourful they are off the rainbow chart, Turbo is a breath of fresh air guaranteed to delight youngsters and adults alike

An almost excessively innocuous animated endeavor...

The buildup to the inevitable big race is a lot more fun than the climax itself.

A snail with the need for speed turns into the best animated film I have seen all year. We may have seen this all in Ratatouille but it still seems fresh as a slug.

Yes, it's inevitable that somebody utters the words "there's nothing in the rules that says a snail can't enter the race," because if someone didn't say it, we wouldn't have a movie.

It is aggressive, poisonous in its mediocrity, not just denuded of imagination and creativity but openly contemptuous of the idea of such things.

Good animation plus strong voice talent make this a solid family entertainment film.

dutifully and cheerfully follows a well-worn path and rarely if ever deviates from the rising-underdog formula, and while it doesn't break any new ground, what it does it does quite well

Peter Hartlaub
San Francisco Chronicle
July 22, 2013
After the originality of the hero, the filmmakers borrow too heavily from other movies; the similarities to "Ratatouille" and "Cars" are almost distracting.

With Turbo, it feels like large swaths of what it should accomplish are simply omitted (although not for time, at 96 minutes it drags considerably).

Sandy Schaefer

Turbo is a harmless underdog story for kids with well-executed racing sequences but a flat approach to characterization and unchallenging life lessons.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The prevailing sense with Turbo is that it's overly calculated while receiving none of the basic care and attention it requires in order to thrive.
