We got invited along to the preview screenings of Turbo – the speedy snail with big dreams. The film was entertaining and charming. The kids (6yrs & 4yrs) loved every minute of it. A quirky storyline with a traditional feel good ending. Definitely one for us to watch again.

Turbo Movie Trailer
My overall movie rating for Turbo:
Would my husband like this film? Yes, he would. There were some “Dad’s along”, who enjoyed it more than some of the other “kids classics”.
Did our friend like it? The kids loved it. And though this is a “racing snail”, the film had appeal to both boys and girls.
Likeability of characters – 9/10 (very quirky characters with good casting)
General story line – 9/10 (predictable, but still entertaining and good)
The Ending – 9/10
Overall? We highly recommend this new kids’ animation.
