Story: A freak accident infuses a slowpoke snail with a nitrous oxide-powered speed boost, which gives him a shot at achieving his dream - winning the Indy 500.

Review: Theo (Ryan Reynolds) is a despondent little garden mollusc. His protective big brother Chet (Giamatti) and their ilk work at a tomato harvesting plant. Each morning, one hapless snail gets gobbled up by a wily crow. Theo, who idolizes a French race driver called Guy Gagne (Bill Hader), dreams of being able to race someday.

Chet thinks Theo's speedy dreams will come to naught. Then one day, Theo gets sucked into a race car's engine air intake, is infused with a fuel additive and emerges with a superpower. He is now Turbo, who can zip along at insane speeds.

Later, an encounter with a hungry crow lands Chet and Turbo in the city, where they get picked up by Tito (Pena) who helps his taco-making older brother Angelo (Guzman) run their food stall. Tito also bets on snail races and is overjoyed to discover Turbo's gift. It's not long before they get Turbo all geared up, so to speak, for the Indy 500.

Some of the scenes are a bit 'out there', in a manner of speaking. It's almost like the writers had ingested something before coming up with some scenarios. Where else would you see a sequence where a group of snails (one called Smoove Move, voiced by Snoop Dogg and another named Burn, with Maya Rudolph's voice) surf on overhead power cables to House of Pain's 'Jump Around' pumping in the background? Or the very premise of the story - that of a snail that's faster than a racing car? But the good thing is that the film delights in its absurdity.

Although this movie is no Toy Story or Shrek , it is nicely paced, energetic and entertaining enough in 3D. And as an underdog story, its message is positive and simple enough - one should never give up one one's dreams and aspirations in life, no matter what the odds.

A snail named Theo(voiced by Ryan Reynolds)loves to watch racing, and wishes he could race on the tracks, but his brother(voiced by Paul Giamatti) tells him that he is a snail, he was not meant to be fast, cause he is a snail. But one night Theo accidentally lands in a fast car, and gains the power of being as fast as the car. Now Theo has fun with this new found power, but how far will it take him?<br/><br/>a well made animated film, I mean it is no Wreck it Ralph, but still a fun movie. But it's not just a snail with super speed, but it's more of a ensemble, providing the voices Samuel L. Jackson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Michael Pena to name a few. They all really make this story quite a joy, and seem to be having a blast working on this film.
