4.0 out of 5 stars fun for kids Nov. 12 2013
By Sheilah HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
This set is quite nice, with blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy. The only thing I don't like about the set is that it digital copy does not appear to be ultraviolet, but that is a personal preference.

As for the movie itself: this movie is like an almagamation of many other different kids movies into one. It most definitely takes on the same flavour as the movie Cars, and then combines it with cute humanistic animals (which is like almost every other kids movie).

What I liked about the movie is that the struggle of the main character revolves around the fact that he is too small, instead of an outside force. I like this as it gives kids a good message of overcoming their own adversity.

For adults, there were enough funny moments to keep you entertained, so that when you are watching it with a kid you don't want to bang your head against the wall. This isn't a movie filled with inuendos only adults would get, but it has enough jokes to keep you smiling and entertained by the movie.

I would certainly say this is a movie for kids to watch, and that adults will enjoy watching.

Is it worth your money as an adult? no.
Is it worth your money if you have a kid you want to give it to? yes.

Format:Blu-ray
VIDEO (2D):

Turbo zooms onto blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.35:1 encode. This Fox/DreamWorks collaboration presents a stunning display of animated eye candy. The transfer is pristine. While characters appear a little bit like plastic (here, Pixar is still more superior), their environments are richly detailed. Little imperfections in roadways, pebbly backyard terrains, veins in leaves, individual blades of grass, and fine details on race cars are revealed to current technological perfection. Colours are bold and saturated. The choice of 2.35:1 ratio is appreciated because the colourful picture simply fills my 12 foot wide screen (using anamorphic lens), and looks majestic like a wonderful painting. (5/5)

AUDIO:

Turbo blasts onto blu ray with a powerhouse DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless soundtrack. The primary English track offers incredible stage presence in every area of concern. Whether a lawnmower powering through the stage, jets zooming overhead, or cars rumbling down the track at high speed, the track delivers a wide, seamless soundstage and brings its major effects to life with precision placement, movement, and sonic accuracy, right down to the ribcage-rattling low end support pieces. Clarity is superb across all sound effects and musical elements, too. Dialogue is clear. This is a robust, active and highly enjoyable soundtrack. (5/5)

TRIVIA:

Turbo has an estimated budget of $135 million, but only grossed $267 million worldwide.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I bought the 3D set because I am starting to collect 3D version of major blockbuster movies. In this case, the 3D version is not spectacular. I would recommend the 2D version (currently being reviewed): bright bold colours with amazing details. Overall, it is a very enjoyable experience.

VIDEO (3D):

Turbo speeds onto blu ray with an enjoyable 3D presentation. The image retains the same excellent characteristics of its 2D counterpart, as described above. The 3D presentation doesn't dim or in any way lessen the dazzling impact of the usual characteristics. Colours remain bold and accurate. Details, too, enjoy pinpoint accuracy across the board, revealing with seemingly limitless clarity individual grasses, earthen terrains, pot-marked roadways, and Dos Bros. Tacos menus seen in the background of several shots. Overall, this is a good 3D transfer, but it is not outstanding and not spectacular. (4/5)

AUDIO (3D & 2D):

Turbo blasts onto blu ray with a powerhouse DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless soundtrack. The primary English track offers incredible stage presence in every area of concern.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun! Nov. 14 2013
By fredamans TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
I was worried that this movie would be awesome for the kids but leave parents yawning and bored.
I was completely wrong!
This was definitely for the whole family. Kids won't understand all the jokes,thankfully, but that's a good thing. They will love the adventure, action and lovable characters. Parents will love that the kids stay focused, while having a few laughs at those jokes the kids don't get.
It was also fun trying to pinpoint each actor or actress to the voice. Lots of famous favorites are the voices behind these characters, like Samuel L. Jackson and Snoop Dog. (I know he is Snoop Lion now, but he'll always be Snoop Dog to me.)
Plus the ending is "perfectly predictable" and everyone is happy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Racing fun
This is a real hit with my almost 5 year old son and 7 year old nephew. It is visually stunning. The story, while far fetched and predictable, is good harmless fun. Read more
