Turbo was a snail who dreamed to become fast. he watched his favorite racer on television and trained everyday to increase his speed. one day after an accident that resulted him to be infused with nitro, he became so fast and was soon abducted by a Taco guy, who wanted to use Turbo as an attraction to their failing Taco business. they entered the Indianapolis 500, the world's fastest race.
having watched Planes (2013) in prior to Turbo (2013), we had our fingers crossed, hoping that Turbo (2013) would at least turned out to be slightly more watchable and we weren't disappointed. Turbo was so different and emotionally engaging that it was impossible not to root for this snail. it was surprising that a commonly found garden pest could be turned into a character so strong and adorable to look at. the film was simple and straightforward yet remained highly entertaining.
