‘Turbo’ finds fun formula, but too much too fast

Movie Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

There’s not necessarily a problem with the plot, which actually is entertaining enough on its own, but it’s hard to form an attachment to any one character in particular. Thrown in in so many bunches that it makes even my ADHD brain hurt you barely get used to seeing one supporting character before 10 more arrive and most are limited to one line quips to move Turbo onto the next scene.

It may be a case of trying to do too much or counting on us to watch the forthcoming show where it expands the other characters background but it ultimately makes a decent enough entry fall flat in the shuffle. I do recommend it for just about any age if you need something to entertain the kiddos outside of the home television, but I personally won’t feel too sorry if it was only a one time experience. As a result I’d say “Turbo” earns three out of five salt shakers.
