G-Force Movie Review
Can a team of trained guinea pigs stop an international company from taking over the world? Find out in G-Force, the 3D movie adventure.
G-Force is a funny family adventure flick about a genetically-modified, highly-trained team of rodents (three guinea pigs and a mole) who are skilled in espionage. The team includes Darwin, their team leader; Juarez, the hard-to-get Spanish female; Blaster, the extreme thrill-seeker and cliche master; and finally Speckles, the computer whiz.
Their small size, super intelligence and advanced equpiment that lets them talk to humans allow them to infiltrate criminal headquarters undetected. They can do in an hour what the FBI needs months to complete. And that’s exactly what they do when they learn that Saber Electronics, the world’s leading consumer electronics and appliance company, is out for world domination. They’ve installed a chip in each of their products that, in 48 hours, will unite all the electronics across the globe and cause mass destruction.
Glitch in the Plan
It’s up to G-Force to stop Saber Electronics from gaining control. But that proves difficult when the FBI shuts down G-Force’s operations. The team lands in a pet store where they meet some new quirky characters, particularly Hurley, Darwin’s long-lost brother (or so Hurley thinks). They each find their own clever means of escape, from adoption to playing dead, and wind up separated.
Robot Killing Machines
While wandering the city streets, Darwin and Hurley discover just how far Saber Electronics will go to destroy the world—their new coffee maker transforms into to a robot killing machine! If all their appliances can transform, how will G-Force stop an entire world of deadly robots?
The Bottom Line
It’s Beverly Hills Chihuahua meets Transformers staring crime-fighting guinea pigs. The movie is a hilarious 3D adventure, filled with crazy computerized stunts and, of course, the occasional fart joke. It may not be your favorite summer flick, but it’s still entertaining and climactic with a great twist.
