Dreamworks takes the “I want to be a Kung Fu master – but I’m a Panda” formula and replaces it with: “I want to be a race car – but I’m a snail.” The result is a “no dream’s too big, no dreamer too small” tale that, whilst it ain’t up to Disney/Pixar standards, borrows liberally from their back catalogue. Think A Bug's Life in Cars, with bits of Ratatouille thrown in.

The film's considerable charm comes through via its characters and sense of humor.

All Turbo does is give Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Samuel L. Jackson and Snoop Dogg the easiest paychecks they'll ever make.

Even in the absence of originality, there is fun to be had, thanks to some loopy, clever jokes.

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.

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