Consensus: It's nowhere near as inventive as its off-the-wall premise might suggest, but Turbo boasts just enough colorful visual thrills and sharp voice acting to recommend as undemanding family-friendly fare.

Kids should be game for the ride, and the colourful characters offer humour and poignancy.

[An] energetic, funny cartoon about a plucky garden snail.

Movie Mezzanine

Boasts one of the most one-note protagonist in animated film history, some troubling racial elements, and a paint-by-numbers execution that makes this film about the dream to go fast feel painfully slow.

San Francisco Chronicle

After the originality of the hero, the filmmakers borrow too heavily from other movies; the similarities to "Ratatouille" and "Cars" are almost distracting.

"Turbo" isn't a perfect cartoon, but it's so likable that, like its humble hero, you have to root for it.

The outcome is as predictable as the premise is outrageous in this crowd-pleasing 3D animated comedy.

the movie seems to understand its own near-abject ridiculousness ... without getting overly nudge-nudge wink-wink ...

A derivative but nevertheless good-hearted movie that's peppered with enough clever touches to engage adults as well as moviegoers of the smaller, squirmier variety.

Turbo is a very cute movie with lots of great animation and elements that the kids are going to love. It's just a bit hard to swallow.
