Review

Our Score
This slice of computer-generated cartoonery is the very essence of fast-and-furious fun. The eponymous hero here is a common-or-garden snail who, courtesy of a freak accident involving a race car and some supercharging nitrous oxide, finds himself imbued with blistering super speed. It's a case of one small slither for a snail, but one giant leap for snail-kind, as the accident allows Turbo to realise his lifelong dream to compete in the prestigious Indianapolis 500 race. Cleverly calling time on too much slime, Turbo's makers manage to make the snails both cute and cuddly. Add a sharp script, a top-notch voice cast (Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Samuel L Jackson), some quality 3D visuals and race sequences that have a genuine feel-of-the-wheel about them, and you've a family film that moves at anything but a snail's pace, and is well worth shelling out for.

Summary

A garden snail obsessed with motor racing gets sucked into a car's exhaust pipe, and emerges having gained super-speed. This stroke of luck allows him to realise his dream of competing against human drivers in the prestigious Indianapolis 500 race. Animated adventure, with the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti and Samuel L Jackson.
