I didn't have high expectations for Turbo, but I had faith in DreamWorks's ability to get me interested in snails and left turn racing. I wasn't let down. Turbo turned out to be a modern, heartwarming, and entertaining animated movie.
Turbo opens well, but drags a bit until the middle of the movie. The comedy is great as are the visuals (though the visuals aren't up to Pixar's level). This movie also has a great soundtrack.
Turbo held the attention of all the kids in the theater. There's some mild violence and a comical perceived death of a predatory crow.
Turbo is a feel good story that's well executed. With Monsters University and Despicable Me 2 still in theaters, I'd recommend Turbo for younger audiences. If presented with the three, I'd see Monsters U 1st, Despicable Me 2 second, and Turbo a close 3rd.
There are some fun scenes that interact with the credits and a scene in the middle of the credits
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

What started out as a movie that I had very little interest in, turned out to be one of the best kids movies I have seen. It was FANTASTIC. From the start to the end, you find your self intrigued by this snail who wants to be more than "just" a snail. It was a feel-good, heartwarming story that had my whole family cheering at the end.

Mildly entertaining. We had afew laughs but I can say that I don't think I would want this movie as a kiddo's favorite. I would get more than tired of it.

Not only did our 3 girls enjoy this movie (Ages 7-10), but my husband and I really enjoyed it as well. Funny, fast and definitely a must see family movie. I'm sure I'll be buying the DVD as well for repeat views in the SUV....

A believe in yourself, believe in your dream story. I really liked the 3d elements of the film. They must have scanned the track for the film, because it sure felt like you were at the track with the 3d effects. The racing scenes were well done, even with the snail..lol
