If you talk about a snail that races with cars it sounds really dumb. But if Dreamworks decides it’s a good idea, then you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised. At least visually is really great and features some of the most stunning and effective 3D sequences I’ve seen in a long while. And it isn’t as banal as one may think and even without big surprises (an easily guessable final, but it fits) stays catchy and entertaining till the end.
Ok, the plot is really flat, and is clearly targeted to a very young audience, so it’s not mind challenging and some cultural cliches may even upset if you’re a little sensitive. But remember it’s for kids and every movie should be considered in his target and context, only when a film spans age and culture it reaches a superior level. But you can’t (and shouldn’t) expect every work to be a masterpiece.
For being a movie for children features a lot of hip-hop in the soundtrack (hey, there’s Snoop Dogg among the voice actors!), of course a very polite and parent-approved kind of rap (not Eminem for example).
And I wonder how difficult it may be to release a score album and not only a couple of tracks amid songs of a very completely different genre.
