Movie Review: Turbo

This movie is about Theo, the garden snail who dreams of being a race car and going as fast as possible. However, being a snail makes that dream impossible-or does it? A freak accident causes Theo to become "Turbo"--a super fast snail who can race. Meanwhile, he is found by a young man who is also a dreamer, and he wants to use snail races to make his taco stand successful. Does it work? You'll have to watch the movie to see how Turbo did in the Indianapolis 500, and how the taco stand worked out. One outstanding part of this movie was the birds that died in the making of this movie. As a dog who does not like birds, I was happy to see such realism in a film. If you ask my opinion, more birds should be killed in films! I give this movie 4 paws up, some tail wags, and a tummy rub which is about an 8 out of 10 on the human movie scale. Although this movie is largely meant for children, the message of this movie is that you should not give up on your dreams no matter how silly they may seem. Who knows...one day, you may be running alongside the cars at the Indy 500 too?! I want to mention that Ryan Reynolds played Turbo, and Paul Giamatti played Turbo's brother, and I think both actors did an amazing job considering that it is not easy for a human to play a snail. Do I smell an Oscar nomination for them? Probably not--knowing those silly Oscar giving humans, it will go to some stupid movie that stars birds as heroes. If only more birds could die, this world would be a better place for dogs! Demon Flash Bandit (Movie Critic)
