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.

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.

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

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.

Kids should be game for the ride, and the colourful characters offer humour and poignancy.

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...
