TURBO (Theatrical Release USA 2013)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Turbo—a wannabe fast snail—has a slow start. The first of the movie encourages a quick walk-out to look for a better movie to watch. Wait a little longer and you’ll be glad you didn’t miss the rest of the story and its ‘big bang’ ending.

Storyline

Theo the Snail (voice of Ryan Reynolds) watches reruns of famous races. Theo, a big dreamer who wants to be a racer, lives in a pack of snails that just want to be able to eat tomatoes every day. The film follows his progress to realize his dreams.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Sometimes slow starts yield long term results in good entertainment. This film is a good example of that.
