BUCKLE up for life in the fast lane with the latest action packed Dreamworks animation film - Turbo - Certificate U - on general release, on Friday, October 18.
Who would have thought a humble garden snail would have made such a funny and likeable lead character?
But Theo, also known as our hero Turbo, and voiced by actor Ryan Reynolds, is a gutsy little creature, with big dreams of the fast lane, far away from the vegetable patch.
And who would have thought that the combination of a garden snail and his bid to win the United State’s biggest motor race, the Indy 500, would have you sitting on the edge of your seats?
But what is not to love about a snail with superpowers - Turbo has a blue glowing shell, and leaves a super shiny, go-faster blue snail trail in his wake.
This is a simple story that accelerates into action as Theo tumbles off an overpass, is inhaled by a souped up car’s intake valve, and is transformed into Turbo!
Our hero and his reluctant brother Chet, voiced by laughter packed Paul Giamatti, join up with the superslick racing snails Whiplash (Samuel L Jackson), Smoove Move (Snoop Dog) and Burn (Maya Rudolph) - and the film certainly moves up a gear towards a climatic finish.
Set against a great soundtrack, with tunes from the Jackson Five, to House of Pain, Run DMC and Snoop Dog, this is a family friendly feel good film.
Just remember ‘no dream is too big, no dreamer too small’. Nothing like a feel good family film, to give you that warm and fuzzy glow!
