After a freak accident infuses him with the power of super-speed, Turbo kicks into overdrive and embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the seemingly impossible: competing in the world’s fastest race, the Indianapolis 500. With the help of his tricked-out streetwise snail crew, this ultimate underdog puts his heart and shell on the line to prove that no dream is too big, and no dreamer too small.
Turbo (phim hoat hinh) may not be the most original or inventive animated film ever but it’s a good time and pretty fun. The story is pretty simple and one that a little child can imagine. But the way it delivers the story is gorgeous. It has lovable characters and sense of humor.
Theo (who prefers to be called Turbo) is a garden snail who lives as an outsider among his snail community. His dream of becoming the Indianapolis 500 champion makes him an outcast and his obsession with speed brings embarrassment to his brother, Chet. However, after an unexpected accident, Theo is granted incredible speed and also inherits some characteristics of an actual car (headlights, radio).
He is then taken by a chubby guy named Tito. Tito and his brother Angelo own a taco shop that is struggling. The other tenants in the area are also facing the same problem. Tito has this idea of registering Turbo into the Indy 500 in order to help his business prosper. And there are also other snails who become Turbo’s buddies.
“Turbo” may not have as much depth as some of the animated masterpieces. But “Turbo” doesn’t aim in being that. It wants to become a fun-filled adventure about a freaking-fast snail racing in the midst of an array of monstrous cars. And it doesn’t disappoint. It’s enjoyable, slick and plenty of fun.
The characters are likable too. Turbo is ambitious, funny, and adventurous. All the qualities of a fun character are embodied in him. Chet, his brother, is caring and more cautious but is also adorable in some moments. The other snails are also plenty of fun due to their ridiculous antics. Besides the mollusks, we also have the human characters. Tito, with his large build, is extremely chubby and funny. Tito’s other friends are also a joy to watch.
Turbo (Tay Dua Sieu Toc) also has a great sense of humor. I had a blast watching this film. Not all the jokes work, but most of them do. But I do want to mention that there’s a joke concerning crows snatching one snail at a time, and to me it seems a bit extreme because the idea of a snail being eaten by a crow is kinda creepy, don’t you think? Or maybe it’s just me. But the bottom line is “Turbo” is plenty of fun to watch.
The animation is not the best I’ve seen but it’s pretty good. It possesses beautiful sets and the colors are fluorescent. The voice cast was excellent too and Ryan Reynolds did a great job lending his voice to Turbo.
Turbo (Review Phim) is a fun and rollicking adventure and it is plenty of joy to watch these lovable characters see what they’re up to. Just don’t expect too much from it and don’t expect it to be a masterpiece.
