  • Laremy Legel

    Particular credit must be given to Samuel L. Jackson’s voicing of Whiplash and Paul Giamatti’s work on the voice of Chet. The chemistry between the two is awesome, hilarious even.

    There’s nothing remotely revolutionary about Turbo’s underdog-sports narrative, but that’s okay—it’s one of the sturdiest plots in film for a reason—and the film’s emotional beats are no less potent for being expected, thanks to the ground-level focus on the human-snail relationships that fuel them.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Nell Minow

    The movie gets a bit slow, with too much time spent on the human characters, who are dreary and underwritten, compared to the big dreams of the little snail. But the film picks up when the racing snails come back onscreen, thanks to the adorable character design, with expressive use of those googly eyes, and especially to the voice talent.

  • Lou Lumenick

    A fresh, fast and funny little fable.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    While there's no denying that the film is a harmless, wholesome, and heart-warming ride crafted with polish and skill, it's also so predictable that you'll see every twist in the story driving down Fifth Avenue.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    In the end, Turbo is an unambitious movie about a very ambitious character, but it has an infectious sense of fun. Don’t expect too much from it, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

  • Betsy Sharkey

    A series of strong emotional crosscurrents tied to the notion of winning and losing are in the hands of a very eclectic and capable cast.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Here, the laughs come not from the silly voices but a blend of snappy editing and clever character bits, including a recurring joke about an inappropriately named sidekick who calls himself White Shadow (Michael Patrick Bell).

    Variety Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    By the time Turbo reaches the finish line, this new iteration of the fable about pursuing one’s dreams no matter how unlikely they seem joins the winner’s circle without quite nabbing the trophy.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    For all its chronic familiarity, the movie has its minor pleasures, many of them visual. Though at this point it's basically a given that a new studio-animated movie will look good, Turbo often looks downright exceptional.

  • Trey Graham

    Turbo is harmless good fun — and impressionable kids could take worse lessons away from the multiplex.

    NPR Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    Turbo is just strange and lively enough to make you wish it were better.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Has some appealing characters, a few laughs and then devolves into a predictable Tortoise and the Hare spinoff.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jen Chaney

    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.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Turbo makes an entertaining go of it by borrowing very liberally from the “Fast & Furious” franchise — Michelle Rodriguez even voices a character — and sticking a slime trail onto “Rocky” for the rest.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    While small children may be enchanted by this little gastropod that could, adults will be more sorely tested. For all the horsepower Turbo boasts about, the movie tends toward the sluggish — as in slow as a slug.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    As a film about social issues, and simply being yourself, it's commendably progressive, going so far as serving as a kind of coming-out story.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Rather than bionically enhancing all its characters, a better movie might have found ways to celebrate their sloth and slime.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Ken McIntyre

    Paul Giamatti shines as Theo’s pessimistic brother Chet, and the uplifting message never smashes you over the head.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    Kids should be game for the ride, and the colourful characters offer humour and poignancy: Paul Giamatti’s cautious snail Chet shares a sweet friendship with reckless Turbo. Comparisons with Pixar’s ‘Cars’ are easy to make, but that’s no bad thing.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Families who have already raced to “Monsters University” and “Despicable Me 2” will find Turbo an acceptable third-place finisher. A sort-of escargot-meets-“Cars” adventure, it has some sharp vocal turns and remains fun even when its inventiveness runs out of gas.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Competent, pretty funny in places, awfully nice to look at, that sort of thing. There’s just not a lot of excitement, though.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    Let's face it: Kids aren't a very demanding audience. If there's color, movement, and a high quotient of silliness, they're happy.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    This is such a generic endeavor — not a poor effort, just one that doesn't attempt to do anything besides splash a screen with color and movement.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    It is interesting to note that a movie strenuously preaching the virtue of being different should be so fundamentally — so deliberately, so timidly — just like everything else of its kind... Still, even in the absence of originality, there is fun to be had, thanks to some loopy, clever jokes...and a lively celebrity voice cast.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    An attractively designed but narratively challenged, one-note film.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    If you want to see Paul Giamatti as a snail - and who doesn't - you've come to the right place. If you don't, wait for Cloudy 2.

    Empire Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    Content to be merely cheerfully clichéd, it's an assembly-line kids' film that, unlike its daring protagonist, risks little, and thus reaps only modest rewards.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Fear

    All Turbo does is give Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Samuel L. Jackson and Snoop Dogg the easiest paychecks they’ll ever make, and its corporate overlords the chance to sell a few toys.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    One of the more disappointing big studio animated features this year, a movie can't even muster the energy to be visually engaging, let alone give you anything to care about story-wise.
