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.

Keys perfectly into being young and little.

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

After the originality of the hero, the filmmakers borrow too heavily from other movies; the similarities to "Ratatouille" and "Cars" are almost distracting.

the movie seems to understand its own near-abject ridiculousness ... without getting overly nudge-nudge wink-wink ...

[An] energetic, funny cartoon about a plucky garden snail.

There's nothing new here, just old stuff in a new-ish package. This movie's enjoyable, but never as daring or bizarre as it could have been.
July 17, 2013
A derivative but nevertheless good-hearted movie that's peppered with enough clever touches to engage adults as well as moviegoers of the smaller, squirmier variety.

A sort-of escargot-meets-"Cars" adventure, it has some sharp vocal turns and remains fun even when its inventiveness runs out of gas.

Turbo won't set the world of animation on fire, but it's a fun movie.
July 17, 2013
Ultimately, "Turbo" nicely lives up to its diminutive hero's credo of, "No dream is too big, and no dreamer too small" - a pleasant thought, for people of all sizes.

Let's face it: Kids aren't a very demanding audience. If there's color, movement, and a high quotient of silliness, they're happy.

DreamWorks' 3-D confection ... featuring Ryan Reynolds as a garden-trolling slowpoke who dreams of Indianapolis 500 glory.
July 17, 2013
Turbo's colourful trek to product placement-littered Indianapolis is as rote as it gets, but little viewers won't care about predictability.
July 17, 2013
Honestly, they pretty much had me at "racing snails."
July 17, 2013
Great voice talent in a story that puts the "go" in escargot.
July 16, 2013
Even in the absence of originality, there is fun to be had, thanks to some loopy, clever jokes (the script is by Darren Lemke, Robert Siegel and David Soren, who directed) and a lively celebrity voice cast ...
July 16, 2013
Has some appealing characters, a few laughs and then devolves into a predictable Tortoise and the Hare spinoff.
July 16, 2013
"Turbo" has just enough heart to make it to the winner's circle.
July 16, 2013
An easy recommendation, well-considered and well-executed, a treat for anyone who likes comedy or ambitious takes on make-believe worlds.
