Well the story is very ridiculous BUT it is also fun if you don't take it seriously.
Turbo is a likable speed junkie BUT he is a SNAIL. Nature has played a cruel trick on him. But thanks to some NO2, he becomes fast and furious. And I gotta say, that whole speed thing was pretty cool whenever he does it, the movie captured the thrill of speed pretty well.
There are lots of side characters, some humans, some snails. Some good, some lame. Hell, there is a Samul L Jackson snail too, who obviously has the guy's enthusiasm. And then there is the snail, WHITE SHADOW. Honestly, he always cracked me up whenever he said that and dramatically backed into the shadows.
The CGI quality was great. Everything from the environment to the characters was detailed.
From the reviews, I would say, this movie is a little bit underrated. I had the impression that it will be mediocre but was pleasantly surprised that I liked and enjoyed it.
