Turbo movie date

Thanx to Nuffnang we got to catch Turbo at TGV, 1 Utama last night. Turbo is about a garden snail who has big dreams and a freak accident might just be the answer to everything.

Turbo family movie

We are so happy that it was not in 3D as I don’t really fancy wearing those 3D glasses throughout a movie and I think it’s safe to say that you won’t be missing a lot watching this in 2D except for those flying cut grass and rubbers and maybe snails. Maybe I DID miss a lot! >_<

Anyway, I went for this movie with a blank mind, not knowing who is who as I love trying to guess who’s the voice behind those animated characters and these are the few that can easily be recognized:

Ryan Reynolds as Turbo

Ryan Reynolds as Theo (Turbo)

It took me some time to figure it out but I managed to guess just before the movie ends! 

Samuel L. Jackson as Whiplash

Samuel L. Jackson as Whiplash

Samuel L. Jackson as Whiplash is a no-brainer. You’ll see Samuel from the very FIRST moment you see Whiplash! They are so identical it’s almost impossible to tell them apart! 

Michelle Rodriquez as Paz

Michelle Rodriguez as Paz

When you mention Turbo, first thing that comes to mind is, “Is it similar to Fast & Furious?” Let’s just say that they are not at all similar BUT they do have ONE thing in common, they both have Michelle Rodrigues in it!

Snoop Dogg as Smooth Move

Snoop Dogg as Smooth Move

Snoop Dogg as Smooth Move is another easy guess. Come on, who else can look like that?! 

Those are about it. I can’t guess anymore beyond those four. 

Okay, if you ask me if Turbo is worth watching, I’ll say YES!

You’ll have to get rid of logic, forget common sense and most of all be a kid again to enjoy this movie. Ethan was laughing throughout the movie and so did Darling and I. If your kid hates tomatoes, you really got to bring him/her to watch this as by the end of the movie I guarantee your kid will be requesting for a round, juicy tomatoes to bite!

Ethan now can’t wait for our little tomato plant to grow big as he wants to see Turbo and friends on it! >_<

Anyway, I’m not going to touch much about the movie as I don’t want to be a spoiler but I tell you, it’s way much better than Monsters University. We were kept entertained throughout the entire movie and Darling did not fall asleep even once! It’s an awesome and hilarious animation to catch with your family.

What are you waiting for? Start your engine and go for it! Vroom vroom… *releasing in Malaysia on the 18th July 2013*

    Storyline pretty much predictable but it’s unique in its own way… not so realistic about the movement of the snails. Don’t think they can even jump! LOL

    Snails are animated as if they move at human speed, which I take it as a literary device by itself.

    The movie has gone to the extent of personifying snail physiology. How cool is that.
