Turbo: Turbo dreams of being the greatest racer in the world and competing in the Indy 500. His obsession with speed has made him an outsider in the slow and cautious snail community. After a freak accident gives him incredible speed, Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible.
Chet: Chet is Turbo’s older brother and polar opposite. Overly cautious and always practical, Chet is the realist to Turbo’s dreamer. Chet’s number one priority is to keep his brother safe – and Turbo is his biggest challenge at succeeding in that task!
Tito: Tito, like Turbo, is a dreamer. Turbo and his older brother Angelo run a taco stand they call Dos Bros Tacos. Tito is forever coming up with misplaced schemes to draw attention to their struggling business. When Turbo zooms into Tito’s life at 200mph, Tito is inspired, and the two kindred spirits head off to chase an incredible dream.
Angelo: Angelo is the older and more level-headed half of Dos Bros Tacos. Like Chet, Angelo is realistic about his station in life and has to put up with a brother whose goals seem evasive, if not downright delusional.
Guy Gagne: Guy is a French-Canadian race car driver and five-time Indy 500 champ. Guy comes across as an eccentric yet charismatic charmer, but he’s really a competitive egomaniac who will do anything to win. He’s all speed, no heart.
Whiplash: Before Turbo arrived on the scene, Whiplash was the charismatic leader and reigning champ of the Racing Snails. To be part of Whiplash’s crew you must earn his respect…and unless you’ve won his respect, you’ll never see the real Whiplash -- a warm, jovial guy who treats his crew like family.
Smoove Move: A super-cool low rider, Smoove has a unique perspective on even the craziest twists and turns triggered by Turbo’s adventures.
Skidmark: A master of trash talk, Skidmark is Whiplash’s feisty #2. For Skidmark, no stunt is successful if it doesn’t end with an epic wipeout.
Burn: Though she’s the only female snail in the group of testosterone-fueled racing snails, Burn has no trouble holding her own. Sly and sassy, Burn hides her soft side under a hard outer shell.
White Shadow: Full of false bravado and real laughs, White Shadow considers himself to be “fast, like a shadow” – ignoring the fact that shadows aren’t inherently fast.

`Turbo' is far from a truly intelligent or unique film, and yet it manages to be not only fun and engaging but charming to a point where I found myself completely entwined in the story and the characters. The tried and true themes of `dreaming big' are not something new or untold with animated films. Animated films, which are manufactured for children, are there to inspire confidence and help them to realize that they can do anything they set their mind to. That is why in animated films, rats can cook, wimps can train dragons and snails can race cars. Impossibilities exaggerate truths for kids and help them to `dream big', which is something we want for all of our kids. Like I said, this is nothing new, and `Turbo' doesn't really even attempt to make it new, but it does handle its themes and premise with spunk and charm.
The film tells the story of Theo, a worker snail who harvest tomatoes in a garden but watches Nascar at night, dreaming of one day being a racer. The huge obstacle being that he is a snail and thus VERY slow. Still, this and the fact that his antics cause turmoil within his social circle and ridicule from his fellow workers does not stop him from thinking outside of the box, and when a freak accident leaves everything in his slug-juice, Theo (aka Turbo) finally sees a light at the end of the tunnel.Read more ›
Geared towards kids under the age of 10, "Turbo" will be sure to have kids delighted and cheering the snails on. However, the excitement merely lingers for a short while, just like the exhaust trail from a racecar speeding by.
For a movie about racing snails, "Turbo" isn't half as bad as I thought it would be. Although initially skeptical, I changed my mind for the better because of the movie's amusing wit and heart. A normal garden snail named Theo has big dreams of being the fastest racer in the world. His brother, Chet, sees Theo's dream as nonsense and a distraction to their work in the garden. One day, a freak accident involving Nitrous Oxide changes Theo to Turbo. Suddenly this snail has the abilities of a car - headlights, a stereo, and of course, unparalleled speed powers! A Mexican taco seller, who shares the same dreams as Turbo, enters the snail in the Indy 500. On his journey to the greatest car race in the world, Turbo befriends a gang of smooth cool snails (you'll never look at snails the same way again) and meets his rival, the menacing racer, world-renowned Guy Gagne.
The plot is straightforward and simple, mixed in with heart-warming feel-good morals typical of underdog family-friendly animated genres. "Dream big!" the film seems to shout at every turn. I could have done without highlighting the message quite so much. Although "Turbo" starts off slow, it gradually begins to pick up speed. The filmmakers also could have included more brother bonding moments between Turbo and Chet.
The voice-overs are solid, especially Ryan Reynolds' Turbo and Paul Giamatti's Chet.Read more ›
In this DreamWorks production, Turbo (Ryan Reynolds) is a snail fascinated by the Indianapolis 500. His goal is to break the world record by covering a meter in a day or something. His brother Chet (Paul Giamatti) tries to tell him he's not going to ever be fast, but Turbo isn't convinced and often rebels at his regular job of harvesting tomatoes. In a freakish accident Turbo is ingested into the engine of a street drag racer and while circulating among the pistons, inhales a goodly amount of Nitro methane injected into the fuel line. Magically, rather than by being killed, the poor mollusk takes on super snail speed. Enough speed that he can keep up with Indy cars.
With help from a Van Nuys taco bender named Tito (Michael Pena) and some obviously more hip snails he meets (Samuel L. Jackson, Snoop Dogg, Maya Rudolph, Michelle Rodriguez, and Mike Bell) off they go to register for the 500. Once there he has to confront his hero and great French driver Guy Gagne (Bill Hader). As you would expect they have a mighty duel for 500 miles and an unsurprising finish.
"Turbo" is a bit light on adult humor but the kids are going to love it. As for my grandson, he and I were pretty much on the same page. When there was a lot of talking (human morals and expectations transferred to garden creatures) we were a bit antsy. When the action is going on and the sound is everywhere, we were paying attention. Seen with kids, the movie can be fun.
