movie summary: A freak accident might just help an everyday garden snail achieve his biggest dream: winning the Indy 500. (www.imdb.com)
my thoughts: Turbo was a neat animated movie about being an underdog and achieving your dreams. We follow one snail’s dream of being fast from a small taco stand in Los Angeles to the Indy 500 in Indianapolis. Tagging along for the whole movie is his disapproving brother, but Turbo is determined to go from a laughing-stock to champion. The only challenge standing in his way is racing against his indy car hero Guy Gagne.
my star rating: 5 out 10
