Turbo Blu-ray Review
Kidzworld reviews TURBO, the heartfelt adventure about a snail with big dreams of winning the Indy 500!
From the makers of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, TURBO is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an underdog snail whose dreams kick into overdrive when he miraculously attains the power of super-speed. But after making fast friends with a crew of streetwise, tricked-out es-car-goes, Turbo learns that no one succeeds on their own. So he puts his heart and shell on the line to help his pals achieve their dreams, before Turbo-charging his own impossible dream: winning the Indy 500.
Laugh it up with the visually stunning, heartfelt comedy-adventure for fans of all ages this holiday season!
The Bottom Line
Not every film that is stunning in theaters in 3D translates well to the blu-ray format, but Turbo is tailor-made for taking the 3D experience home: the incredible high definition audio and visual elements on the three disc combo pack enhance the experience for home viewers in the best ways possible. It certainly doesn't hurt that it's a cute story that you just can't help but like - a snail racing the Indy 500? That has to be the ultimate feel-good story, and you can't help but root for him and his motley crew as this fast-paced adventure comedy slides into action. One of the best features of the film is it's subtle soundtrack, so a standout in the bonus features is the music videos and music for the film in "Smooth Move's Music Maker." The Turbo Combo Pack has the regular bonus features you might expect from any Dreamworks film, but not much above the average release, the best part of the combo pack is actually watching the delightful visuals of the film in high definition. We recommend Turbo as a great film for cuddling up on the couch with your family or friends for a rainy day movie night, or any old time you want to lift your spirits!
